Charlotte Bobcats 92 Final

Recap | Box Score

119 Minnesota Timberwolves
Josh McRoberts, PF Shot Chart 27 MIN | 3-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 4 AST | 4 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 6 PTS | -16Struggled in just about every aspect of the game tonight. McBob got frustrated towards the end of the game – effect of guarding Kevin Love all night.

Al Jefferson, C Shot Chart 28 MIN | 3-9 FG | 2-2 FT | 7 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 8 PTS | -16Back-to-back very disappointing games. Jefferson was embarrassed by Pekovic tonight – Seriously. A lot. Pek is an enormous human being.

Kemba Walker, PG Shot Chart 31 MIN | 7-17 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 7 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 15 PTS | -18The numbers don’t look horrible, but trust me, it wasn’t pretty. Kemba was frustrated for most the night + Rubio did a very nice job on him defensively.

Chris Douglas-Roberts, SG Shot Chart 27 MIN | 6-9 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 16 PTS | -25CDR has been one of the very few bright spots in this rotation as of late – unfortunately, this is all coming to an end when MKG returns Tuesday.

Gerald Henderson, SG Shot Chart 24 MIN | 5-13 FG | 2-5 FT | 3 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 12 PTS | -17Hendo has developed one aspect of his game very nicely – the mid-range jump shot, but man it’s hard to watch him go so out of his way to get to that spot offensively every time.

Anthony Tolliver, PF Shot Chart 27 MIN | 8-9 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 21 PTS | -8What can I say, he didn’t miss tonight. Some of it definitely rooted from Tolliver being back in Minnesota – his last home. Regardless, impressive shooting performance and I’m excited for him to fall solely into a shooting role when MKG returns.

Cody Zeller, C Shot Chart 16 MIN | 1-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 6 REB | 2 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 0 TO | 2 PTS | -7The game is still too fast for him and Cody is far, far, far, far away from being a PF in the NBA at this point.

Bismack Biyombo, C Shot Chart 20 MIN | 0-1 FG | 4-4 FT | 7 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 4 BLK | 1 TO | 4 PTS | -114-4 from the stripe? Okay Biz….

Playing against fast teams like Minny definitely isn’t Biz’ type of game.

Ben Gordon, SG Shot Chart 10 MIN | 1-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 2 PTS | -3He lives.

Steve Clifford
How badly does this team need Michael Kidd-Gilchrist back? Be honest.

Three Things We Saw

  1. The Bobcats defense is in disarray and spiraling out of control quickly. MKG will help, but this is also a group that may be beginning to lose faith.
  2. Minnesota out-rebounded Charlotte 54-33 and scored 54 points in the paint. These are things that simply didn’t happen in the first quarter of the season for the Bobcats.
  3. @ Chicago tomorrow night carries tons of weight for this team’s psyche moving forward. Huge game.
