Bobcats Let Game Slip Away in the Second Half.

The Bobcats may have lost by 20 on Tuesday night, but there were some positives to take away from the game.


Bobcats Trail Thunder 57-53 at the Half.

The Good: Forcing six turnovers and only committing two while shooting 45% from the floor. Oh, and making 88% of your free throws is excellent.

The Bad: Allowing the Thunder to shoot 60% from the floor.

Byron Mullens leads the Bobcats with eleven points, including three three-pointers and Ramon Sessions added eight points to go with his five assists.

Serge Ibaka leads the Thunder with twelve points and seven rebounds to make up for Kevin Durant's 2-8 shooting performance in the first half.

Tonight's Starters vs the Thunder

Bobcats starters for tonight: Sessions-Henderson-MKG-Mullens-Biz. Checking for the starters for the Thunder, but no luck yet. Still no James Harden or Thabo Sefolosha, though.

(Edit: Thunder go with Westbrook-Liggins-Durant-Ibaka-Aldrich tonight.)

Apparently DeAndre Liggins will start for OKC. Who is DeAndre Liggins? I don't know, but you best believe I'm about to open a Wikipedia tab.

We're less than an hour away from tip, people! Fire up! Or at least get as fired up as you can for preseason.


Bobcats - Thunder game notes from OKC

The Thunder will be missing a couple key players tonight, including James Harden. Thabo Sefolosha will also be sitting. In his stead, DeAndre Liggins might start, said NewsOK's Darnell Mayberry.

He also says that Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant will see an uptick in minutes to about 28 minutes.

This could be a bit of a shock to the system for the young Cats. It'll be interesting to see how they respond.
