For a lot of NBA games, the final score doesn’t always tell the whole story. In the case of the Charlotte Bobcats vs the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night, the only thing you need to see to figure out how the game went was that score, though.
Five Cavs scored in double figures, Cleveland shot better than 50 percent from the field, and Kyrie Irving and Co. won almost every statistical battle.
Speaking of Irving, he dropped 22 points and missed just four shots the entire game.
Charlotte’s point guard? Kemba Walker? You know, the one this website has cheer-led the entire season? He scored five points on 11 shots in 26 minutes. He did get four assists to zero turnovers, though…
The ‘Cats had just as many double figure scorers as Cleveland, but Charlotte’s leading scorer was Byron Mullens who dropped 15 points on an efficient four-of-seven shooting.
Cleveland scored 50 points in the paint to Charlotte’s 20, and 22 points off turnovers to Charlotte’s four. Yes, four.
The Bobcats did commit 10 fewer fouls than the Cavs, but that clearly had little baring on the ouctome of the game.
And not that 1o points would’ve mattered much, but Charlotte shot a laughable 15-25 from the charity stripe.
It was just that kind of game.
