Kemba Walker scored 20 points, and Mike Dunlap remembered Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was on his team in the fourth quarter, but the Charlotte Bobcats were still dismembered by the Miami Heat.
Walker’s 20 points came on seven-of-21 shooting, but he did have three assists and six rebounds.
Kidd-Gilchrist made the most of Dunlap’s rare gift of playing time with 13 points and 10 rebounds.
Gerald Henderson continued to pour in buckets with 18 points, and Bismack Biyombo grabbed 11 rebounds.
That was about it on the positive side for Charlotte.
The Bobcats got out-rebounded, brutally out-shot, and out-assisted… 29… to… nine.
Yes, the Charlotte Bobcats had less than 10 assists Sunday night.
LeBron James was just two rebounds away from a triple-double with 32 points and 10 assists, Chris Bosh scored 15 points and grabbed six boards and Norris Cole and Ray Allen both scored 10+ points off the bench.
On a positive note, the Bobcats did out-score the Heat off fast-breaks.
That was the only positive note.
Jeff Taylor scored eight points on four-of-12 shooting, Jannero Pargo scored five points on two-of-seven shooting, and Ben Gordon scored zero points on zero-of-six shooting.
Did I mention that as a team the Bobcats had just nine assists?
The Bobcats will look to get back to their recent winning ways (.500 in their last four) against Orlando on Wednesday.
