Former Kentucky Wildcats in the NBA Playoffs: Kidd-Gilchrist, Bobcats fall short of upset against Heat

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (SF/Charlotte): MKG, along with his team, had been underestimated all season for being such a young team. The team flew back to Charlotte after Game 1 in order to avoid distractions. The team had been focused all night Wednesday, and it showed. Kidd-Gilchrist led the Bobcats with 22 points (9-13), along with 10 rebounds, but the Bobcats fell short in the final minute 101-97. The Bobcats are now down 2-0 in the series as they head back to Charlotte. The Heat were led by LeBron James who had 32 points. Miami is 17-0 against Charlotte since the Heat acquired James and Chris Bosh.

Terrence Jones (PF/Houston):Jones had some of the pressure taken off of him last night, as Dwight Howard finished with a huge double-double (32 pts, 14 reb, 4 blk). Jones himself had 13 points, eight rebounds, and two steals. However, the Rockets’ backcourt couldn’t keep up as they had a combined seven turnovers, and Howard had six himself. The Rockets dropped another to the Blazers 112-105, and are now down 2-0 in the series.
