Another day, another gaggle of Cats showing why our program is on the mountain of college basketball.
Charlotte Bobcats-92 Washington Wizards-76
>Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, PF, Charoltte
MKG as he’s affectionaly known by the Big Blue Nation has been playing on a whole other level of late and tonight was no exception. His aggressive play has helped steer the Bobcats to a 3-3 record. He started tonight and finished with 15 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 assists. Clearly he would have justifiably been the #1 pick were it not for his teammate, Anthony Davis, declaring also. Neither the Bobcats or the Hornets could have made a wrong selection with those two picks.
Sacramento Kings-86 Orlando Magic-103
>DeMarcus Cousins, C, Kings-DNP (Suspension)
>Chuck Hayes, PF, Kings
Cousins was a DNP this game due to a two game league suspension for an aggressive display toward Sean Elliot earlier this week. He was sorely missed. The Trailblazers waxed the Kings and his replacement, Chuck Hayes, while he played admirably, he doesn’t have the size or offensive game of Cousins, and his production reflected that. Still though, for 6’6″, he had 6 points, 8 rebounds, to go with 6 assists, which indicates solid play across the board, but nothing spectacular. They needed spectacular.
Brooklyn Nets-114 Cleveland Cavaliers-101
>Keith Bogans, SG, Nets
Another Nets game, another start for Bogans. Unfortunately for him, he only logged 11 minutes, scored 0 points, dished out 3 dimes and had 1 rebound. He clearly is not there for his offense but his perimeter defense keeps him starting.
Los Angeles Lakers-82 San Antonio Spurs-84
>Jodie Meeks, SG, Lakers
As their team is in flux, dealing with the transition from Mike Brown to Bernie Bickerstaff, and now onto Mike D’Antoni, they continue to struggle. Meeks only saw 9 minutes of game action 2 rebounds, 2 steals, and 0 points on 0-1 shooting, as his Lakers fell to the Spurs. This season has started out very frustrating for Meeks individually and as a team with the Lakers poor record.
