when people look at a stat sheet and see 6 for 15, you HAVE to factor in 9 free throw attempts to even that out some. that being said........this would have been a good night for jason terry or lou williams or whoever as a 6th man shooting guard combo. the 5 assists in 40 minutes being the most assists he's had over the past 5 games is troublesome. here's to hoping his 4th quarter's continue and that augustin and he figure out a dynamic to work together.
maggette played great, I mean most of his buckets were in the flow of the game and didn't look like he looked at the beginning of the year where he was just taking everybody out of rhythm to take shots.
loved what i saw out of bismack and mullens. 27 and 16 in 48 minutes combined at your center spot. i think you take that. the 5 turnovers will go away with experience but for them to play as aggressively as they did and rebound as well as they did.....it really looked good. mind you philly didn't have hawes but still. mullens got cold the 2nd half but he also had a few missed calls and a few free throws. still a move in the right direction for him, especially with the defense and rebounding.

According to Silas Augestine and Henderson costs the Bobcats 30 Points per game. If they had played we would have scored 119 points and easily won the game. We still make the playoffs if we can run the table.

Run the table? I hope that was sarcasm.
I'm a big Bobcats fan... but this team is trying to get to a point where they're watchable. This 15 game losing streak has been brutal.

last night was the first time in a while that for a stretch of time they actually outplayed their opponent significantly.
they looked really good in that 3rd quarter and beginning of 4th. you get augustin and henderson back and they won't just be watchable.....they'll pick up a few wins and move out of the cellar. i'm just not sure that's a good thing. we have a 2 game lead on the guaranteed top 4 pick. but we aren't even halfway through and we are just now getting healthy.
it's possible we win 11 games the rest of the way. what we want is for all the other teams to win 10 or more during that same span. and to end the season with a streak of success and momentum.
