Bobats win 2 of the last 5 outings
After defeating the Orlando Magic 100-84 on March 6th in Time Warner Cable Arena, the Charlotte Bobcats lost three straight before clenching their 6th win of the season against the New Orleans Hornets 73 to 71, last night.
Trailing by just two, Trevor Ariza of New Orleans appeared to have a straight driving lane to the basket for what seemed would be an easy lay in. With the seconds ticking down, Biyombo blocked Ariza’s attempt and clenched the victory for the Bobcats.
Neither team shot to well offensively in the first half, as the score was 37 to 35 Hornets at intermission. Going into the third quarter, the Hornets extended the lead 46 to 39. With a little rookie trickery of their own Biyombo and Kemba Walker contributed six third quarter points to lead a 22-9 run for the Bobcats. Appearing to be a half of runs, the Hornets quickly answered with an 11-point run to bring the score to 73 to 71, Bobcats in the final seconds of play.
Bismack Biyombo was the player of the game for the Bobcats. He finished with 12 points, seven rebounds, and four blocks; one of which was the gamer winner. Fellow rookie Kemba Walker also had a big game for the Bobcats, he finished with 14 points, four rebounds, and three assists.
The Bobcats face the Houston Rockets at 8 p.m. on March 14th at the Toyota Center, where they will look to capture another victory on the season.
