Is he ever. He had more rebounds by himself than the Cats did as a team.

A lot of things were troubling about this game:
1. MKG's shot still looks like something you want to hide from your kids. I like his hustle and defense but it's starting to look like Taylor is the more promising of our SFs.
2. Sessions continues to chuck up lousy shots and doesn't involve his teammates at all. I thought he played way too many minutes.
3. Hendo couldn't hit the side of a barn. His signature 15 ft. turnaround jumper was completely off.

I give Big Al a pass given that he hasn't practiced or played in weeks. I just hope he didn't do any damage to his ankle. I honestly thought he shouldn't have played, but I'm not the coach (obviously ).

Yet even with our problems I was pleased with the Cats overall. Houston is arguably one of the best teams in the West and to go in there and hang tough was encouraging. If we can get our shots to fall and keep up with transition defense for all 4 quarters we're gonna be in a lot of games.

I'll be there tonight. Anyone else going to the home opener?

Nice win at home against the Cavs and then we go and lay an egg at New Orleans. Such is life with a young team.

Will we ever quit being a "young" team?

Probably at the same time as the Cavs. Look at the ages of our starting 5 right now (Al Jefferson (28) still out):

Kemba: 23
Hendo: 25
MKG: 20
McRoberts: 26
Biyombo: 21


Key bench players:

Cody Zeller: 21
Jeff Taylor: 24
Ramon Sessions: 27

Nice win against the Knicks. Our Cats score 102 behind 25pt.s from Kemba. Hendo finally gets out of his slump. Raptors in town tonight and then these same Knicks of Friday.

Most telling stat of the night: the Bobcats out-rebounded the Knicks 51-33

I think that our win over the Raptors last night shows that our guys are beginning to learn how to close out games.
Watching them play has really been more exciting than frustrating. The new coach seems so cool. Compared to Larry Brown who was always so full of rage.

So glad Hendo has shot his way out of that awful slump. Dating back to last season we have won 5 in a row at home!

The up and down at the free throw line is going to send me to an early grave though. It really tears me up.

Good game last night until that ugly 3rd quarter. Nice stuff from MKG, at least in the 1st half. I'm starting to wonder if signing Gerald Henderson was the right move because right now he isn't playing like a starting 2 guard in this league, and I don't know why we're not playing Ben Gordon at all.

I agree that Ben Gordon ought to be played and bring Hendo in off the bench.

Big Al has his first significant night with a double-double and some really nice passes, the Cats overcome a terrible shooting performance and being without McBob and beat the Celtics on the road. I'll take it.
