Bobcats Take Down Bucks 94-84

The Charlotte Bobcats jumped out to a huge lead in the third quarter and then held on through the fourth quarter for a 94-84 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

The game was not on local TV, so it's up to those of you who watched on the internet to fill in the blanks for the rest of us. After the jump, some highlights and lowlights in the box score.

BAD

-- Should we consider the possibility that Gerald Henderson has zero social skills and insults Larry Brown to his face every day? Maybe LB is waiting for an apology for something he did long ago and Henderson is too proud to do it. In a game in which the Cats were up 30, how does Henderson get under two minutes of playing time?

-- Stop shooting so many threes, guys. Flip and D.J. were the main perpetrators of poor three point shooting, going 1-7 and 1-5, respectively. It's not a good idea to set a hard limit, but even those guys, who are ostensibly the best shooting options on the team, should concentrate on getting into the lane and closer to the rim. If everyone made that his first option, more open shots would appear for everyone else.

GOOD

-- Tonight was a return to form for the defense. Brandon Jennings had a very good game, with 24 points and 7 assists, and Luke Ridnour poured in 17 on only 10 shots. However, that was about all Milwaukee could muster, offensively. Jodie Meeks(!) led the Bucks with 7 rebounds, and Andrew Bogut was a non-factor in 19 minutes, with 2 points and 5 rebounds. This is the kind of play that could cover up this team's offensive woes.

-- Gerald Wallace was, again, the best player on the floor, scoring 21 points on 13 attempts from the field, and pulling down 14 rebounds.

-- DeSagana Diop scored 7 points and had 3 rebounds in 12 minutes? What kind of madness is this?

-- Wow. Free throw shooting near 80%. That's got to be some kind of record, am I right?
