Charlotte Bobcats Crushed By The Pacers. Again: Game 38 Recap


For the second time in three games, the Charlotte Bobcats lost in underwhelming fashion to the Indiana Pacers.

This time the score was 103 to 76, and the biggest problem the ‘Cats had was rebounding.

I wrote this morning about how Charlotte could get better at boarding, and the Bobcats almost responded exactly like I said they should. Tyrus Thomas played just six minutes and Jeff Adrien played 23 minutes. Hakim Warrick played just 14, and grabbed only one rebound. Still, Adrien grabbed six, and the two combined for more rebounds than Thomas averages in his usual 17 minutes a game.

The only problem was the fact that Adrien was one of just four Bobcats with more than two rebounds Tuesday night.

Overall the team got out-rebounded 60-31.

I also wrote earlier about what could be causing the shortage of minutes Kemba Walker is facing this month.

He played just 27 minutes against Indiana, despite shooting six-of-nine for 13 points with one assist, three steals and just two fouls (Ramon Sessions played one more minute and shot 3-of-10 and scored 13

Gerald Henderson led the Bobcats with 15 points, and along with Sessions and Walker, was one of three ‘Cats to score more than seven points.

The Bobcats will take the court again on Friday against the Orlando Magic.
