Apparently, he has recovered.
2 new #Bobcats starters vs. Pacers: Gana Diop at center and Tyrus Thomas at small forward. (cont.)
A note to tonight's game from Charlotte... Tyrus Thomas will start at small forward.
It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

By eat our guards alive, I mean, get past them for open shots.
Kemba can always do that. He could always do that at the college level, and he'll probably always be able to do that in the pros. But he's a pretty bad shooter. (streaky, really.) But really, who do you think can keep up with Kemba? Maybe Hill, but I think he's too slow too.
I'm pretty honest with how I feel about a Uconn guy. I don't like or dislike a guy because he's from Uconn. I LOLd at Thabeet being drafted as high as he did, and I knew the idea of Stanley Robinson in the first round was a joke, Ben Gordon wasn't a point guard, no matter how many times he said he was..etc..
I get the game on NBATV!!!
3 scenarios for the draft, starting with my favorite first:
1. Pacers trade up for Justice Winslow
2. Take WCS or Stanley Johnson (this is the theory of a player falling); Make trades (Hibbert/West/others) for additional picks - George Lucas and Rakeem Christmas are players I'd love to have with a late first/early 2nd round
3. Trey Lyles
I'm sure my opinion will change many times before the draft though.
Haven't read through the whole thread but I catch a lot of Bobcats games (heck, I've been to three this year already) and we should have no problems with these guys.
Kemba had a good scoring game last night but the second unit really struggles with him running the offense.
Mullens has a nice 18ft shot he has been hitting this year because of open looks (his confidence has increased and he has added a horrific turnaround version now).
They have a smaller lineup, and Thomas is still very much out of rhythm. Bismack is still very, VERY raw and is adjusting to NBA ball. Diaw is streaky and you either get the Diaw who lit the Knicks up or the more common chucker (has some finesse but its unorthodox). As a Hoosiers fan, I am very impressed with DJ White this year. He's received a lot of playing time so far.
For the most part, Henderson and Augustin's numbers are up this season because there is simply no #1 option. With Gerald Wallace and SJax were traded, you never know who will lead the team in scoring.

Currently exporting my (very) short Pregame vlog. Won't be up before tipoff, but I'll still post it here when it's up on YouTube for those who want to see it.
Besides that, I'm really excited for this game because there are a lot of ways it can go right. And as long as we don't play like we did against Miami, then I think we'll have a really solid performance from just about everyone.
My insane prediction for the night:

Frank Vogel said Stephenson will get his minutes back once he returns from his ankle injury, which won't be tonight vs Charlotte
George 20p tonight
The (unofficial) PacersTV!! Pre-Game Episode for the Bobcats @ Indiana game tonight:
Enjoy, thanks for watching!
This is D Brown 2nd or 3rd year in Charlotte. He's a bottom tier player. DJ White is better. Augustin and Henderson are their major scorers. I like both, so that means they will have poor games.
If Charlotte plays right, they can give the Pacers a run for their money. They beat the Knicks earlier this week, I loved it!, and lost to Atlanta in OT last night.
they should definitely play sandstorm b4 games from now on
so hibbert makes that but misses 2 bunnies
Why didn't DC oop that to PG...?
THAT was a perfect alley-oop opportunity for George. #yousuckDC
Glad to see D West hit his first bucket.
D has been weak to start.. besides the nice block
This is what I was talking about in my postgame vlog last night. Henderson has the ability to get buckets, and if they roll the PnR for Augustin, he will shoot and make that shot once his defenders leave.
Wow great play by Roy.. help D then gets back for rebound.
