Another Double Digit Loss for the Charlotte Bobcats: Game 56 Recap


It was more of the same for the Charlotte Bobcats as the they took on the Denver Nuggets Saturday night.

Kemba Walker had his fourth straight 20+ point game, Bismack Biyombo hit the glass early and often, and the Bobcats lost by double digits.

Walker finished with 24 points on better than 50 percent shooting to go along with five assists, two steals, and two rebounds.

Biyombo grabbed nine rebounds and finished the night with nine points and two blocks.

Unlike last night, there were a few other Bobcats who played well besided Walker and Biyombo.

Jeff Taylor dropped 18 points in large part thanks to four threes on six tries from behind the arc. Also, Gerald Henderson scored 19 points and grabbed four rebounds.

Josh McRoberts saw his first minutes as a Bobcat. he got six of them to be exact and grabbed three rebounds.

As a team Charlotte got out-rebounded, out-assisted and, obviously outscored.

The Nuggets shot 53 percent from the field and 37 percent from three. They missed just four free-throws while the Bobcats missed seven.

Also, Denver destroyed Charlotte in fast break points and points in the paint.

Andre Iguoudala lit the ‘Cats up to a tune of 13 points 10 assists and five rebounds, while JaVale McGee obliterated Charlotte inside. He scored 20 points on 10 shots.

Ty Lawson didn’t score as much (20 points) or have as efficient a night (six-of-15 from the floor) as his counterpart Walker, but he did get the win.

So it look like this will be another one of those games that goes into the “well, Charlotte got killed, but, hey, at least Kemba did well!” category.
