The Bobcats played the Toronto Raptors in an early afternoon game in Charlotte. The Raptors looked to break their two game losing streak and the Bobcats looked to go on a winning streak after a three point win over New Orleans two nights ago. However, behind Chris Bosh's double-double, Toronto was able to pull off an 88-79 victory.
Bosh would go off with 30 points and 15 rebounds along with blocking two shots. Jose Calderon did not match Bosh's totals put did put in some key baskets to help Toronto win. Calderon had 13 points and seven assists. Off the bench, forward Andrea Bargnani had 18 points, five assists, and three blocked shots. The Raptors were more of a team than Charlotte was today.
Taking the duty as leader today was rookie point guard D.J. Augustin. Augustin, one of my favorite players, led Bobcat scorers with 14 points coming off the bench. To go with the 14 points, D.J. also had four assists.
Guards Jason Richardson and Raymond Felton would both have 12 points a piece. Felton had six assists and two steals while Richardson had five rebounds and four assists.
The man that everyone is watching though is Gerald Wallace. Wallace has been the center of some trade rumors. Wallace would play 36 minutes and only score six points which didn't really help us out too much. He did collect eight rebounds which led the team. I really don't want to see Wallace go unless it is for someone worth taking.
