|Tyrus Thomas, PF 33 MIN | 5-9 FG | 3-4 FT | 9 REB | 1 AST | 13 PTS | -9Very impressive second half from Tyrus. He was active and full of energy all night, but half of that could be because he had green light the entire game due to injuries. Good effort here, would love to see more of same in near future.|
|Derrick Brown, F 29 MIN | 3-7 FG | 4-6 FT | 6 REB | 0 AST | 10 PTS | -15Attacked the rim aggressively in first half, but disappeared in the second.|
|Byron Mullens, C 18 MIN | 1-6 FG | 3-4 FT | 0 REB | 1 AST | 5 PTS | -15Tired of watching him. Will hopefully have some video analysis done by next week exemplifying why he shouldn’t see even close to starter minutes in this league. X-rays on hand were negative.|
|Matt Carroll, SG 35 MIN | 7-10 FG | 3-3 FT | 3 REB | 1 AST | 17 PTS | -17He rose from the dead tonight after starting the season 1-15 from the field, but the simple fact about Carroll is that he turns the basketball over and is a defensive liability.|
|Kemba Walker, PG 38 MIN | 4-19 FG | 0-0 FT | 6 REB | 4 AST | 8 PTS | -17I really hate that Kemba is being forced to learn and mature this way in the league. He’s not getting better by forcing fadeaway jumper after fadeaway jumper. A 6-foot rookie guard should never be forced to be the go-to guy for offense. It’s just unbelievable that an NBA roster can get this bad.|
|Boris Diaw, PF 21 MIN | 2-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 5 REB | 2 AST | 4 PTS | -12End of the season can’t come soon enough for more reasons than one- if you follow me.|
|Bismack Biyombo, C 24 MIN | 0-2 FG | 1-2 FT | 7 REB | 0 AST | 1 PTS | 0Forced everything on offensive end tonight, which was disappointing, but defensively he had the same ole’ impact.|
Four Things We Saw
- The worst NBA team I’ve ever had to watch. I know this team is plagued with injuries, but even when players start getting healthy- will anyone even care to try at that point?
- The Bobcats allowed 60 points in the paint and were out-rebounded by 13 tonight. That’s a combination of zero effort, refusing to box out, and just flat out being a lot worse than your opponent.
- #1 overall pick odds seem to be all but cemented in the Bobcats favor. Rivers, Drummond, Sullinger? Let the discussion begin.
- Not sure how much longer Silas can or will want to endure this. It’s a rebuilding process and don’t believe he planned to be here for it all anyways. His time may be coming sooner than people think.
