Al Jefferson, Ramon Sessions Must Continue To Produce For Charlotte Bobcats

Kim Klement – USA TODAY Sports

Including Monday’s 100-95 victory over the Toronto Raptors, the Charlotte Bobcats have won three of their last five and currently sit in a tie with the Detroit Pistons for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference. If the Bobcats are to stay in the playoff picture while point guard Kemba Walker recovers from a sprained ankle over the next couple of weeks, center Al Jefferson must maintain the dominant form displayed during this recent stretch.

Over the past five games, Jefferson has shot an impressive 58.2 percent from the field while averaging a whopping 26.6 points to go along with 13 boards and 3.6 assists. The 29-year-old big man will be looking to extend his streak of double-doubles to four on Wednesday night against one of the NBA‘s best teams as the Los Angeles Clippers come to town.

Another important factor for the Bobcats during Walker’s absence will be the play of his veteran replacement. Ramon Sessions delivered on Monday against the Raptors, going for 23 points during his 34 minutes of action, and the team will definitely need more of the same going forward. A more than capable performer, Sessions was putting up 10.4 points and 3.1 assists off the bench before Walker went down.

Granted, defeating the Clippers will be no easy task as they come in with a stellar 29-14 record, good enough for fourth in the Western Conference, but the Bobcats are playing well right now and are in a desperate search for wins.

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.
