|Bismack Biyombo, PF 37 MIN | 3-8 FG | 3-4 FT | 9 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 2 BLK | 2 TO | 9 PTS | -16
Nice effort tonight. Started the game by really impacting the paint, but as the game wore on Biz was eaten up by trying to help on penetration and leaving McGee.
|Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF 21 MIN | 4-11 FG | 4-4 FT | 4 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 3 TO | 12 PTS | 0
Thought that MKG should have seen more minutes than he did because of Bobcats struggle to contain Nuggets dribble penetration. Although the offensive efficiency wasn’t great, I really liked the effort and how he picked his spots. Rookie mistakes led to turnover- should be expected.
|Byron Mullens, C 28 MIN | 1-9 FG | 2-4 FT | 3 REB | 3 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 4 PTS | -20
2-21 from the field in his last two games.
|Kemba Walker, PG 32 MIN | 9-14 FG | 5-6 FT | 2 REB | 5 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 24 PTS | -1
Very good game tonight from Kemba, offensively. Defensively, he was scorched by getting beat off the dribble by Lawson. Charlotte wasn’t helping off shooters much tonight, so Kemba getting beat on the defensive end stood out more.
|Gerald Henderson, SG 32 MIN | 7-11 FG | 4-4 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 2 BLK | 2 TO | 19 PTS | -5
I liked most everything I saw from Hendo tonight. He has a natural inclination to play help defense and that led to some wide open 3’s for Brewer, but usually the focus is on Hendo’ offensive efficiency- tonight, it was good.
|Josh McRoberts, PF 6 MIN | 0-1 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 0 PTS | 0
Here’s what you need to know about McRoberts- he’s going to make the simple play on the offensive end 9 out of 10 times and he can box out on the defensive glass, unlike Mullens. His minutes will continue to increase and quite possibly phase Adrien out of rotation.
|Ramon Sessions, PG 22 MIN | 4-8 FG | 1-2 FT | 1 REB | 4 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 9 PTS | -14
Not a lot of run tonight. Better than the last game, but he has been a different player since the all-star break.
|Jeffery Taylor, SG 33 MIN | 7-13 FG | 4-6 FT | 3 REB | 2 AST | 2 STL | 2 BLK | 4 TO | 18 PTS | -14
Dunlap had suggested that Taylor was going to see more minutes after last night’s loss to the Bulls and he came through on that. Great game for the 2nd round pick- seems to be more aggressive offensive every game.
Two Things We Saw
- Denver had 66 points in the paint and A TON of dunks. I won’t bother trying to find out how many, but I know that McGee had 7 just on his own.
- The Bobcats will start a 4-game road trip on Tuesday night in LA against the Clippers.
