You could easily make an argument that MKG has been the best player in both of the past two games. His defense is incredible. He shut down Melo and Rudy Gay. Both guys were very inefficient and got most of their points when Jeff Taylor was in for MKG.

 

He also has been fantastic on the fastbreak. I would love to see him get more postups too because he has made a lot of good moves.

 

Kemba was unquestionably the best player against the Knicks. No doubt about it. MKG himself would agree.

No doubt that Kemba's offense was great that game. But you just can't ignore MKG shutting down the reigning scoring champ. Melo scored 32 points on 28 shots. And most of those points came against Taylor. But like I said, you could argue it.

 

Either way, Kemba and MKG are no doubt the cornerstones of this franchise going forward. Hopefully Zeller (and Biz) can become part of that. Kemba and MKG are showing that they can be stars in this league.

I'm not as sold on MKG as others, but he did a great job defensively in that game.

I didn't participate in the game thread tonight because sportssouth and directv can't decide what the fug they want to do with the games apparently.

Everything blacked out one night. Next night I can only see it in standard def. The next night I can see the game in HD. Then I'm blacked out altogether again... smh... so pissed off. I hope they get it together.

Anyway, according to ESPN, we're in first place now, lol.

It was a fun game to watch last night, the arena wasn't very full but the people who were there were into the game.

 

Kemba didn't look like his usual self due to being banged up a bit in the NY game.

 

Hendo played like a starting NBA SG.

 

I'm liking Biyombo's intensity.  He is aggresive on the boards and even scores a little lol.

Holy poo.....both the Bobcats and the Panthers have a winning record.

 

Has this EVER happened?

^ Yes, for two days in early Nov. 2005 the Bobcats were 2-1 and the Panthers were 6-2. The cats went on a losing streak right after that and both teams have not had a winning record at the same time since.

I think my favorite play is the one where Sessions dribbles around for 16 seconds then drives out of control, leaves his feet, and throws a cross court pass to nobody.

We run it about three times a game.


Smh

 

Teeray, watching that game last night, my post in the Knicks thread came to fruition the moment he entered the game.  Sessions is not a PG in my book, and he waits too damn long to make a decision, which is usually the wrong one.  Insists on driving everything to the hole and throwing something up.

 

I'm with you on the Pargo train.

Hansbrough sits on the bench for a team that lost to a team that starts mcroberts and Henderson.

 

God, my favorite thing about Hansbrough when he played for UNC was how pissed off other ACC fans got whenever you mentioned his name

 

Still puts a smile on my face seeing how salty yall are after all these years

Yes and it is the reason we won, the question is can he do it consistently, and history says no.

I believe that Hendo will thrive coming off the bench as the 6th man. Start Taylor.
