The Charlotte Bobcats won their fourth straight summer league game last night behind a double-double from Kemba Walker.
The former UConn Huskie scored 19 points on 13 shots and dished out 10 assists Thursday night.
The Bobcats forced 21 turnovers to their 11, and outrebounded the Nuggets 36 to 33.
Bismack Biyombo played his best game of the summer, scoring 12 points on six shots, grabbing seven rebounds and swatting three shots. Jeffrey Taylor shook off a slow start to score 16 points on six-of-14 shooting. He also grabbed seven boards.
Byron Mullens fell back to earth with seven points on 12 shots, but he only played 19 minutes.
The biggest story of the night had nothing to do with a shot, a rebound, or an assist, though. Instead, it was a nasty collision between Kenneth Faried‘s face and a teammate’s elbow. Faried was on the ground for a while, but he walked of the court with minimal assistance and was on the bench for the remainder of the game with some patchwork above his nose.
The ‘Cats play their final game of the summer league at 6:30 ET today, and look to go undefeated… And to think, some random guy on twitter thought the Bobcats’ summer league roster was “underwhelming” before the games began. I wish I had favorited that tweet so I could retweet it at him and ask him his sentiments in regard to that roster now.
Then again, who could blame the guy for feeling that way? This roster, after all, is constructed mostly of players from the team which set the record for NBA futility just a season ago.
