2-0 Without Waker

Well this is awkward...

 

The Bobcats are 2-0 without Walker and both those wins came over teams that are above .500 (Raptors, Clippers)

 

Sessions and Pargo seem to be playing pretty well in Walker's absence.

 

Sessions vs. Toronto: 23 points, 2 assists, 2 rebounds, 1 steal

Sessions vs. Los Angeles: 10 points, 8 assists, 2 rebounds, 1 block

 

Pargo vs. Toronto: 11 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds 1 steal

Pargo vs. Los Angeles: 11 points, 2 assists, 1 rebound, 1 steal

 

Jefferson also recorded his 4th straight double-double and his 18th overall.

 

The Cats are currently in 8th place, one game up on Detroit and one game back of Brooklyn.

It is because Pargo is finally playing.

I know tee is kind of saying that in jest, but I really do think Pargo should've been getting more minutes. Honestly, I think Kemba being out has actually made Al an even bigger piece of the puzzle now, and he's doing what he was brought in here to do.

It definitely raises some weird questions.

Well it looks like it is going to be impossible to not make the playoffs, the Knicks are imploding, it is taking Cleveland longer than anyone thought to get adjusted to playing with Deng and meanwhile we just keep on winning. What is going to be bad is if the Pistons get rid of Monroe for a future 1st and fall into one of the worst eight records in the league. I think it would be okay to make the playoffs as long as we get the Detroit (prob 9th, 10th, or 15th unless they start tanking) and Portland picks but if we end up with only the late first and a second it will be a huge mistake.

5 out of our next 6 games are on the road and then we return home to play the Spurs.  

 

We then have a 6 game stretch where 3 - 3 looks possible before going on our toughest portion of the schedule all year (@San Antonio, @OKC, @Miami, and Indiana at home).

 

I don't see us doing much better than 5 - 12 over the 17 games mentioned above, but that may not be bad enough to keep us out of the playoffs in the atrocious Eastern conference.

Did I not tell you guys this like years ago? :)

 

Told you guys that Kemba is not the kind of player that we are going to struggle if he's not in the lineup.

 

Feels like I am Nostradamus. I really dont know how you guys cant see these things. I mean it's right there to see if you guys just quit blinding yourself.

Kemba is and isn't the problem. The real problem is the Bobcts failed to get the right kind if players on the roster to benefit Walker.

Yes after 2 games you come out from under a rock to say "Kemba is not that important". Where were you when he was making game winning shots and putting the team on his back this year?
