Charlotte Bobcats Make It Back-To-Back Wins Thanks To Byron Mullens

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

It hasn’t been the best of seasons for the Charlotte Bobcats, but Byron Mullens is doing the best he can to help the team wind up its last few weeks on a happy note.

Mullens netted 25 points in his team’s 107-101 win over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. Charlotte has won back-to-back games for the first time since mid-November.

Mullens has been leaving everything on the floor. In 27 minutes of action from off the bench against the Raptors, he was 7-of-11 from the floor and 3-of-4 in 3-pointers, plus 8-of-12 in free throws. Mullens insists that his team is starting to play like it did early in the season when it had a 7-5 start. Then again, it’s just two games but the Bobcats have had such a hard stretch, they’ll take it.

It was a game in which Mullens also overcame some early setbacks. He missed his first four free throws but had four key ones later in the game and stole an inbound pass to help preserve the win. Even standing at 7 feet, Mullens made his last eight free throws. He also had three blocks.

For the season, Mullens has 11.1 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game. This was his best scoring game since Feb. 11. His shooting could be better, as he’s at 38.8 percent right now from the floor and 66 percent in free throws. That said, his shooting definitely got better on Wednesday. If it stays that way, the Bobcats are likely to win a few more games.

Hornets Inexplicably Allow Durant Free Dunk

While I understand that Oklahoma City Thunder SF Kevin Durant is physically intimidating when driving the lane, the Charlotte Hornets should be ashamed of themselves for the defensive effort they put forth during this play. I mean, they didn't even try. The Hornets have made some solid strides this season, but boneheaded mental collapses like this will prevent them from continuing to build momentum.
