Rondo is struggling. He did ok scoring with 16 points. He had 4 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals. But, he also had 9 turnovers. That is not very Rondo-like. That tells me that he is tired. And, playing 46 minutes in the first of back to back games isn't going to help.
Pierce has been the most consistent of the starters and that continued in this game. He finished with 28 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals and a block in 37 minutes. He also hit the shot that sent the game into overtime. They started off strong in OT but faded quickly and just couldn't keep up allowing the more energetic Bobcats to pull out the 114-106 win.
Doc played Big Baby 18 minutes and Leon 9 minutes. Leon finished with 6 points, 2 rebounds and 2 steal while Big Baby finished with 3 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 block. He also got floored by a flagrant foul and ended up taking the free throws with cotton up his nose to stop some bleeding.
Ray is tired. He shot just 7-20 and 3-11 from beyond the arc. He just doesn't have his legs under his jumper. He finished with 20 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals in over 48 minutes. This is after Doc said that we would be seeing more of Gabe (6 minutes, 3 points) and Scal (3 minutes, nothing). We are losing anyway. Why not let the bench play more and at least give the starters some rest while we are losing.
KG is tired. KG is hurting. KG had just 14 points, to go with 13 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 1 block in 41 minutes. He is slow to get back on defense and obviously needs a rest.
Perk finished with 9 points, 10 rebounds, and 1 block in 36 minutes. He seems to be playing well and especially at the start of the OT session, he played with energy.
