Opposites world no more, Celtics stomp Cats

Charlotte Bobcats 88 Final
Recap | Box Score
105 Boston Celtics
Josh McRoberts, PF 38 MIN | 4-9 FG | 1-1 FT | 10 REB | 3 AST | 2 STL | 2 BLK | 0 TO | 9 PTS | -4

Decent line for McRoberts – but enough to continue starting and getting the bulk of minutes in front of Byron Mullens, it appears.

Bismack Biyombo, PF 31 MIN | 2-3 FG | 1-2 FT | 9 REB | 0 AST | 1 STL | 3 BLK | 2 TO | 5 PTS | -2

Same for Bismack – well enough on the counting stats, but the Bobcats needed more for a victory.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF 25 MIN | 3-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 6 PTS | -9

While McRoberts and Bismack did solid work on the glass, MKG only grabbed 2 in his 25 minutes, and this helped the Celtics to an overall edge on the glass.

Kemba Walker, PG 27 MIN | 6-13 FG | 0-1 FT | 0 REB | 4 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 14 PTS | -20

Another Bobcat who had a good game on paper – Kemba had 14 points and 4 assists in just 27 minutes. But the Bobcats lost by 20 in those 27 minutes.

Gerald Henderson, SG 34 MIN | 6-12 FG | 4-4 FT | 1 REB | 4 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 16 PTS | -6

Gerald Henderson had a decent night – but the Bobcats needed a repeat of his career high that he put on the Celtics in the win, not an average game.

Byron Mullens, C 17 MIN | 3-5 FG | 1-5 FT | 5 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 8 PTS | -15

60% from the field. 50% on threes. 20% on free throws. How does that happen? But otherwise, good work from Byron in limited minutes with 8 and 5.

Jannero Pargo, PG 21 MIN | 5-12 FG | 4-4 FT | 2 REB | 4 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 18 PTS | +3

I would say the Bobcats have a second Ben Gordon on the roster now in Jannero Pargo, as Pargo dropped 18 points in just 21 minutes (with 4 makes from long range), but considering Gordon’s line tonight, that wouldn’t be fair to Pargo (I’m not saying Pargo is better long run – but for a comment in a quick hit recap, give me this one).

Ben Gordon, SG 25 MIN | 4-11 FG | 0-0 FT | 4 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 8 PTS | -9

4 of 11 from the field for 8 points, plus 4 turnovers. On the plus side for Gordon, he out-rebounded MKG, which caused me to revise MKG’s grade from a D to a D-.
