Charlotte Bobcats Fall to Detroit Pistons: Game 79 Recap

Surprise, surprise, the Charlotte Bobcats lost again.

As depressing as that may be to fans of the ‘Cats, it’s reassuring to know that the season is almost over, and focuses can turn to the 2013/14 season when I (seriously) belive the Bobcats will actually play competitive basketball.

For now though, we must look into why Charlotte lost for the 61st time this season.

Kemba Walker dropped 28 points, six assists and five rebounds, and Josh McRoberts added 17 points and seven rebounds. No other Bobcat topped 15, though, and only four Charlotte players scored in double digits.

They were outscored in the paint by 30, outrebounded by 12, out-assisted by 13, out-shot by seven percent and outscored by 20.

It wasn’t pretty, and there’s really no way to sugar coat this loss…

Jonas Jerebko scored 21 freaking points. If that happens for the Pistons, they’re probably not going to lose.

Every Detroit starter but one scored in double figures, and five Pistons grabbed five+ rebounds.

Honestly, it was an embarrassing showing for Charlotte.

The Bobcats could’ve won this game. Detroit is not that much more talented than the ‘Cats.

Sadly, just about the only stat Charlotte showed out in for this game was free-throw percentage, where they won that battle by 10 percentage points.

The ‘Cats have three games left, and, honestly, even though this isn’t as bad as last year, they can’t end soon enough.
