Stats used are from NBA.com/Stats and current through 1/14. If the Bobcats managed to stifle Boston and Indiana’s offenses on Monday and Tuesday, well, it takes time to compile these things and I apologize. But the basic tenets still hold and please enjoy.
The following slideshow presents screenshots from Saturday’s game against the Indiana [...]
The time has come to take another look at how specific Bobcats’ lineups have fared so far this season. If you remember, we first had a look at things back in late November when the Bobcats stood at 5-4. Record-wise, the team has not fared as well since their hot start. Upon comparing the [...]
The Bobcats now have 9 wins on the season, meaning:
With win 8 on New Year’s Eve, the team surpassed their win total from last year before even getting to 2013. With 9 wins in an 82 game season, they’ll have a higher winning percentage than last season, guaranteed (7/66 = .106%; 9/82 = [...]
As I was browsing through some of the Bobcats defensive statistics on hoopdata.com this morning, I came across a rather stunning defensive stat that pointed out where the Bobcats struggled and excelled all in one.

PER PER Against (Net) DeSagna Diop 6.95 21.82 (-4.65)
Strengths: Diop provided Charlotte with a bigger body when the team faced physically imposing centers such as Dwight Howard. His only real worth was to go in games and try to slow down the opposing team’s front line by [...]
Bismack Biyombo was 9th in the NBA in block rate, rejecting 4.5 shots out of 100 attempts by the opposition. D.J. Augustin was 11th in the NBA in assist rate, at 37%, and 10th in Assist to Turnover rate at 2.9 assists per turnover Gerald Henderson raised his per game scoring average from [...]
If someone stumbled across this game last night and saw the score of 68-64 with 34 seconds remaining in a quarter, they would have assumed the third quarter was wrapping up in a relatively low scoring game.
