Despite a 22 point performance from Gerald Henderson, the Bobcats still fell victim to the Chicago Bulls 89-95.
Henderson was 9 of 17 from the field on the night. He also grabbed 9 rebounds to add to his stat line. Teammate Corey Higgens notched double digit points for the first time in his career with 10 in just 16 minutes of play off the bench.
The Bobcats were plagued on the offensive end by the number one defense in the league. The Chicago Bulls forced 16 turnovers and really limited the Bobcats from getting into any sort of rhythm. Even without franchise player Derrick Rose, the Bulls never seemed to let his absence affect their rhythm in the game.
Also side lined for the Bulls was Joakim Noah (ankle) and Taj Gibson (ankle). Without the presence of Noah under the basket, the Bobcats were able to out rebound the Bulls 44-37. One category the Bobcats have not been very successful in all season.
The backcourt for the Bobcats were almost nonexistent on the night. DJ Augustin had just 3 points and 3 assists. Also, rookie Kemba Walker continued his inconsistent play with just 4 points and 4 assist.
The loss to the Bulls brought the Bobcats record to 3-13.
