Philadelphia 76ers 83 Final
Recap | Box Score
88 Charlotte Bobcats
Josh McRoberts, PF 43 MIN | 6-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 16 REB | 4 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 12 PTS | +15

Exactly what the Bobcats want to see from McRoberts – efficient scoring, strong rebounding, and a few assists, with his passing really helping overall ball movement.

Bismack Biyombo, PF 38 MIN | 2-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 11 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 3 BLK | 0 TO | 4 PTS | +5

Bismack gets contact credit for centering a defense that held Philly to 35% shooting. And 11 rebounds are nice as well.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF 17 MIN | 2-6 FG | 0-0 FT | 7 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 4 PTS | -1

7 rebounds from the small forward in just 17 minutes is nice (just 17 minutes, less so). And the delayed break basket he had where he finished with a floater in the lane while being tackled by Spencer Hawes was a great example of his scoring ability.

Kemba Walker, PG 40 MIN | 6-14 FG | 3-4 FT | 5 REB | 10 AST | 5 STL | 1 BLK | 6 TO | 17 PTS | +13

Like Bismack – contact credit for being part of the defensive effort, with Kemba getting points for Jrue Holiday’s 2 of 24 shooting. Combined with Kemba’s double double, of 17 and 10, a very strong night.

Gerald Henderson, SG 36 MIN | 10-18 FG | 4-4 FT | 4 REB | 4 AST | 2 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 24 PTS | 0

Another A level performace from a Bobcat starter – 24 points without a made 3 for Gerald Jr, plus 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block for the well-balanced box score.

Tyrus Thomas, PF 12 MIN | 2-9 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 6 PTS | -8

Tyrus had 9 attempts from the field, plus 2 free throw attempts in just 12 minutes – for 6 points. His focus continues to be on offense.

Ben Gordon, SG 25 MIN | 2-9 FG | 5-6 FT | 1 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 9 PTS | +5

9 points on 9 attempts, plus 6 free throw attempts? Shoot better, Ben.
