Bobcats Shelled by Magic

Ouch. In the Bobcats' first preseason game, the Orlando Magic shot 64%. Did the Bobcats play any defense?

Some damning stats:
  • J.J. Reddick hit 5 of 8 three-pointers.
  • Carlos Arroyo, Trevor Aziza, Patt Garrity, and Keith Bogans all scored in double digits, and all did so on 60%+ field goal shooting.
  • Jeff McInnis went 0-3 with 4 fouls and a turnover in 23 minutes of play (Derek Anderson did not play).
That said, there were some bright spots for the Bobcats. Jermareo Davidson played well, making 5 of 10 shots and pulling in 3 rebounds in 18 minutes of play. Morrison was 6 for 11. And Richardson pulled in 6 rebounds to go with his 17 points.

A few lingering questions:

1. How severe is Dudley's "left big toe sprain"?

2. Where is Primoz? Not only did he not play - he wasn't with the team.

3. When will Derek Anderson (who rode the bench last night) start to receive some of McInnis' minutes?

Yea there were some bad things about the game last night, but it is only the 1st preseason game. No need to panic. To answer your questions: I don't know how bad Dudley is injured, but he was probably kept out as a precaution. I think the team is confident that he can contribute immediately this season and they don't want to jepoardize that. Brezec is in Charlotte dealing with some family issue so who know when he will be available. As for Anderson, he is a veteran and the team knows what they can expect from him on the floor so I don't see him getting much preseason time. It's not worth the risk of getting him injured.

Some things you didn't mention: J-Rich scored 17, but more impressively did it on 7-10 shooting. Also, Walter Herrmann played limited minutes, which I don't understand. I realize that a lineup of him and Okafor is small down low, but the guy can play. It would be a waste to keep him out of the rotation after what he did in the last 20 games last year.

Finally, in response to a post on another blog on this site, I do not know if the Blog Squad will be returning this season, but I hope so. I think Dudley has been invited to write a blog. Yea Pete was good for the blog, but he didn't post anywhere close to as often as the other fan blogger did. Pete also didn't write about as much basketball oriented stuff. Anyone contacted the Bobcats to find out about the Blog Squad as well as when the supposed website redesign is going to happen?

Great comments. I agree that there's no reason to panic. Vincent will be toying with various lineups and figuring out how each player fits in his scheme. Check out queencityhoops.com for good news about the performance of the Bobcats' starting five.

Richardson's shooting percentage was absolutely a highlight. After watching numerous 6-18 nights from Felton and Morrison last season, it's very encouraging to see our go-to player bury his shots.

I'm also scratching my head about Hermann's playing time. That bears watching.

I'm unsure if the Blog Squad is coming back. I enjoyed Gaither's posts, and if he's not writing for the Blog Squad, I hope he starts up a blog elsewhere. What I didn't necessarily enjoy were the players chiming in with platitudes like "Tough game, we'll get them next time" and "Long road trip coming up, we've got to play tough". I'd much, much rather read a fan providing objective commentary than a player spewing cliches.

Yea, but Matt Carroll did a good job of writing I thought. Sean May basically said the same thing over and over, but Carroll's blog gave some insight into the type of person he was. Also it gave info such as the fact that Richard Hamilton has long nails and will scratch you up on D.
