Game Overview

So begins the Murderer's Row of games for the Bobcats. At 6-7, the Trail Blazers are the only team under .500 that the Bobcats face until December 15 against Orlando. These past few weeks have been fun, but not a particularly difficult schedule. That changes beginning tonight.

OKC may be without James Harden after the trade to Houston, but Kevin Martin is flying under the radar as an incredible bench scorer. He's scoring about 16 ppg on 46% FG, 50% 3P (!!!) and 93% FT. That's absolutely incredible. The loss here is of course Harden's ability to be a playmaker as a passer and not just a scorer.

What I'm most interested in tonight is how the two teams' two best players match up. Kemba will be going against Russell Westbrook and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist against Kevin Durant. Durant's as savvy a scorer as they come and MKG has had foul trouble in the past so beware if MKG fouls early again, it could spell deep doo-doo for Charlotte.

Ben Draws Something In Microsoft Paint will be back soon enough. I have 15 pages of papers due Wednesday, so I'm a bit too busy to doodle at the moment.
