The Charlotte Bobcats dropped their fourth straight game last night and fall to 3-12 all-time against the Milwaukee Bucks in a 79-74 loss. Charlotte has scored 85 points or less in eight oftheir last 12 games.
The Bobcat defense would again fail in the third quarter after leading at half time. Milwaukee outscored Charlotte 27-15 in the third to pretty much seal the game. Bobcats tried to comeback but did not. Milwaukee's Ramon Sessions had 18 points and four assists. He led Milwaukee in the scoring department. Andrew Bogut had a big night. He had 12 points and grabbed 17 rebounds.
Charlotte barely did half of what Milwaukee did. Even though Charlotte had four of the five starters in double figures they still couldn't pick up the win. Alexis Ajinca only had two points in 12 minutes. Leading Charlotte was Gerald Wallace who had 18 points and five rebounds.
The franchise player, Emeka Okafor finally did something, scoring 16 points and grabbing 18 rebounds. It was his first double-double since November 5th against the New York Knicks.
Somebody was in my mind again and Larry Brown started D.J. Augustin. Augustin was in double figures scoring 12 points and dishing out three assists.
Now we have lost the last four games. How do we go from there? I would like to see the Bobcats sign Antonio McDyess to bring some power to the front court. I don't think this would be enough, but we need some veteran leadership on our team.
