The streak ends as the Bobcats win in Toronto

Charlotte Bobcats 98 Final

Recap | Box Score

91 Toronto Raptors
Corey Maggette, SF 26 MIN | 5-12 FG | 6-8 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 16 PTS | +8A very-Maggette line – 16 points on 12 attempts and 8 more at the free throw line. Filled his role.
Boris Diaw, PF 29 MIN | 3-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 6 REB | 3 AST | 6 PTS | +5Too careless with the ball, finishing with 4 turnovers. Had a couple during a stretch in the 3rd where the Bobcats turned it over 4 times in 5 possessions, threatening to let Toronto build a lead.
Bismack Biyombo, C 32 MIN | 3-4 FG | 2-4 FT | 13 REB | 0 AST | 8 PTS | -4A triple double with blocks seems like it could very well be in his future – it’s amazing to watch Bismack cover ground both recovering to his man on a pick and roll and in help defense.
Reggie Williams, SF 31 MIN | 9-13 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 0 AST | 22 PTS | -6That’s what you want out of your shooting guard – points and efficiently. 22 on 13 attempts for Reggie. Well played, sir.
D.J. Augustin, PG 32 MIN | 3-7 FG | 4-4 FT | 3 REB | 10 AST | 11 PTS | +5D.J. moved back into the starting lineup and ran the offense well, finishing with a double-double and just 3 turnovers.
D.J. White, PF 18 MIN | 5-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 5 REB | 1 AST | 10 PTS | +2A great spark off the bench, Big D.J. provided rebounding toughness and a couple of key baskets, including the layup to seal the win.
Kemba Walker, PG 30 MIN | 5-15 FG | 3-3 FT | 3 REB | 8 AST | 14 PTS | +14While Kemba finished 5-15, he was at 5 of 11 at one point. Overall, a nice game, with the 14 points, 8 assists, and a huge steal off Leandro Barbosa late (earned the bump from a B to a B+ with that play).
Byron Mullens, C 14 MIN | 1-3 FG | 2-2 FT | 6 REB | 1 AST | 4 PTS | +7Better rebounding – generally – for 7-feet of smooth. Still slacks a bit and doesn’t do a great job of getting a body on a man prior to looking for the board, and that bites the Bobcats at times, since Byron is not a high-riser and the opponents can get over him for a board if he is not slowing them down.

Two Things We Saw

  1. A win. For the first time in over a month. The Bobcats played well (for the most part) during the fourth and earned this one. Happy birthday, MJ – the streak is over.
  2. Kemba and D.J. played side by side for a large portion of the second half, and with Toronto going with Calderon and Barbosa in the backcourt, the Bobcats were able to make do, while staying in a man-defense.
