Recap: Cavs 99, Bobcats 89 (Or, That just happened.)

April 5th, 2011 by John Krolik

Overview: The Cleveland Cavaliers got their second double-digit win of the season against the Charlotte Bobcats. Seven Cavaliers scored in double figures.

This team is very confusing bullets:

So the Bobcats are supposed to be fighting for a playoff spot, and they went full-on Butler against the Cavs on Tuesday night. The Bobcats completely owned the paint the last time they played the Cavs, and had a good amount of success with interior passing in this one, but the team absolutely could not buy a shot. Gerald Henderson and Dante Cunningham missed approximately 2,437 mid-range jumpers, nobody on the team could hit threes, and Boris Diaw is professionally enigmatic. He makes Hickson look like a paragon of consistency.

Offensively, the Cavs looked pretty darn good. They attacked the rim, pushed the break, and Baron hit a few of those big threes. Ryan Hollins was a monster around the basket, and J.J. almost made up for his questionable shot selection with a few really nice forays to the rim. And Razor Ramon had another nice instant-offense game — poor D.J. Augustin is really not a very good defender.

I mean, the Cavs completely controlled that game the whole way. Go figure. With five games left, maybe this team is finding its stride. Probably not, though.
