Good away win on the end of a back to back. Its Hilarious how coach just keeps marching in one point guard after another into the game. I truly believe we won this one because Knight got injured, so coach had one less point guard to put in there in the 4th quarter. Knight made several open shots. Good for him. Still not a shooting guard. At least we did see him connect, finally, on a pass from Calderon. Charlotte is a horrible team, no interior D. So they have to pack it in and leave our shooters open. Calderon was 4 for 4 from deep, and mostly there was nobody in the gym with him. Stuckey gave us some scoring from drives. Singler hit some shots. CV hit one three and a couple closer in. Not a bad defensive game for him. I said for him, not that his defense was any good. Kravtsov positively affected this one. Very active both ends. His highlight was a dunk off a pick and roll with Bynum - very well done, but again, against a defense that is notoriously bad at defending that play. Let me see, JJ is back in the rotation, playing backup small forward to Singler. He did not repeat his shooting performance, but its nice to see him out there hustling, and not being asked to play power forward, which he just can't do. Calderon often played off guard, to both Knight and Bynum. Stuckey was often useless, playing positions he can't play. Still got to like the drives in though. Much of my dislike of Bynum - I say he is just in the way of Knight and Stuckey playing the point, with Calderon being the shooting guard. One of those very wide open 3's Calderon made was off penetration by Knight and a sharp kickout from him. But I will admit, Bynum is the guy who finds ways to connect with guys like Drummond and now Kravtsov. (But then again, if Bynum was not playing, who is to say Knight and Stuckey could not be doing that?) JMAX? Could not get the job done as the Bobcats were all over the offensive board. However, I will note we started out the game doing very well defensively - with JMAX in the game. I still would like to see Kravtsov start along side Monroe to see how two actual bigs can do on D for us. Note, Calderon only had two assists. It ain't working for him, as a point guard, not to have a shooting guard along side him. Sometimes we do give him CV to help. We could just start a shooting guard along side him. We have a couple of good young ones to try that with. Middleton and English. Just saying. We need to drop down by two point guards. Meaning trade one or two, and use Calderon at shooting guard. Trade for a big to replace Drummond in the rotation. Monroe did a lot of nice scoring inside. JMAX did some damage inside too. Occasionally, we had a decent unit out there, with one of the points running the point, Calderon at shooting guard, CV in at power forward, and just for a bit Singler still in to add another shooter. But these type of logical units were rare in this game. We won it down the stretch with some good, solid execution. Nice pass from Bynum to Monroe for the easy score inside, for instance. And some more rock steady scoring from Monroe. No stupid shots. Looked basically like a smarter team out there vs. what we used a few weeks back. Maybe Calderon influencing the team?
