Grizzlies maul Bobcats (probably again)

Charlotte Bobcats 75 Final
Recap | Box Score
94 Memphis Grizzlies
Josh McRoberts, PF 41 MIN | 3-11 FG | 2-2 FT | 8 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 2 BLK | 1 TO | 8 PTS | -23

Not a good sign when your big man who shot well from the floor went 3 for 11. Decent line otherwise, but 8 points on 11 attempts is no good.

Bismack Biyombo, PF 38 MIN | 1-7 FG | 1-1 FT | 12 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 3 BLK | 1 TO | 3 PTS | -21

Yes, Bis went of 1 of 7 from the field to give McRoberts the crown for best shooting big man for last night’s game. But Bis did collect double digit rebounds and block 3 shots, so it wasn’t a total loss.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF 27 MIN | 3-7 FG | 0-1 FT | 6 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 6 PTS | -4

MKG with another quiet line – 6 rebounds is not bad for 27 minutes, but 6 points and no steals or blocks isn’t much production for a starter.

Kemba Walker, PG 34 MIN | 9-17 FG | 1-1 FT | 2 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 19 PTS | -19

If you only looked at his 2-point attempts, Kemba had a great game shooting, going 9 of 12. Even after you add in the 5 misses from deep, 9 of 17 is still very good. Only 3 assists for Kemba – but he can only pass the ball, he can’t make shots as well.

Gerald Henderson, SG 41 MIN | 6-16 FG | 1-1 FT | 6 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 13 PTS | -23

Like McRoberts and Bis – an off night from the field for Gerald Henderson, who was just 6 of 16. Like MKG not much beyond points and rebounds, as he recorded just 6 boards and 2 assists, with blanks in steals and blocks.

Two Things We Saw

  1. According to this, just 2 steals. The Bobcats need transition opportunities to boost their offense, and steals are a good catalyst for that. Without them last night, scoring enough points to get a win was a battle too large.
  2. As for the title – I feel like this title has probably been used before, because of the cheesy headline word play with Grizzlies and maul. Oh – and the Grizzlies are really good and the Bobcats are not.
