Kemba Walker had his third straight 20+ point performance, but it wasn’t enough to keep the Charlotte Bobcats from getting destroyed by the Chicago Bulls Friday night.

Walker finished the game with 27 points on better than 50 percent shooting and five rebounds. He had just one assist, though.

Bismack Biyombo was the only other Bobcat who played well enough to deserve a mention in this recap.

He continued his strong effort on the glass in the second half of the season by grabbing 12 boards in 36 minutes to go along with seven points on three four shots.

For what it’s worth (not much) Jeff Adrien was the only Bobcat with a positive +/- in the game. He scored seven points and grabbed a rebound in 21 minutes.

The Bobcats were outrebounded by the Bulls by just one, but Chicago had 24 more assists than Charlotte on the night. All but five of the Bulls made baskets came off of assists.

Speaking of made field goals, the Bobcats only had 25 of them the entire night.

Chicago shot better than 50 percent from the floor, and held Charlotte to 33 percent.

The Bobcats terrible shooting wasn’t limited to the field, though; They missed 14 of their 25 free-throws.

The main culprits of this free-throw disaster? Michael Kidd-Gilchrist who went six-of-nine from the line, and Ramon Sessions who went five-of-eight.

Still, if all 14 of those missed freebies went in, Charlotte still would’ve lost by a significant margin.

The final score was 105 to 75 Chicago.
