FINAL SCORE: BOBCATS 98, RAPS 91 SEASON RECORD: 9W-23L
LINE: 24 pts (8-15), 8-12 FT, 2 stlPOUND THE ROCK STAR #2: JAMES JOHNSON
Well, you can't REALLY be 'Pounding the Rock' when you lose to the Charlotte Bobcats. When you watch the Raptors compete with the Celtics, Spurs, Lakers and Knicks but then come up short against these guys, that stings.....well, unless they're competing for the 2012 #1 draft pick. DeMar did his thing on the offesnive end and put up 24 points, getting to the line 12 times which is recipe for DeMar's success. Anytime that DeMar gets to the line over ten times, he scores at least 23 points. He also had the slam of the night, with this throwdown:
LINE: 14 pts (7-14), 8 reb, 2 stl, 1 blk
James Johnson is proving his worth this season as he continues to display that he can work both ends of the floor. Double digit scoring to go with eight rebounds, two steals and a block? You can't complain.
POUND THE ROCK STAR #3: AMIR JOHNSON
LINE: 6 pts (3-9), 15 reb, 3 ast, 2 blk
A career-high in rebounds for Amir last night. While DeMar worked the offensive end, Amir was on the other end grabbing boards and blocking shots.
SHOUTOUTS TO THE BOBCATS:
LINE: 8 (3-4) pts, 13 reb, 7 blk
It doesn't surprise me that the Charlotte Bobcats snapped their 16-game losing streak against the Raptors last night. It's just what happens to the Raptors....and on top of that Bismack Biyombo had career-highs in rebounds and blocks. Ugh.
