Bobcats set personal record in 35-point win over RaptorsPosted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports:
Gerald Wallace broke out of his shooting slump with 31 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, helping the Charlotte Bobcats to the most lopsided victory in team history, 116-81 over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.
Stephen Jackson added 23 points for Charlotte, which held the listless Raptors to 35 percent shooting. The sixth-year Bobcats’ previous biggest win was a 32-point rout of Indiana on Nov. 16, 2005.
While Wallace entered as the NBA’s third-leading rebounder, he was shooting 38 percent from the field and averaging only 13.7 points. But he took advantage of one of the NBA’s worst defenses by beating numerous defenders off the dribble.
The Raptors shot just 34.5 percent from the field in this game and hit just 4 of their 19 three-point attempts.
Toronto point guard Jose Calderon dished 8 assists, but the four other Raptors started combine for just three.
Hedo Turkoglu, the big Raptors off-season addition, brought nothing. In 22 minutes he shot just 2-of-7 for five points, two assists and almost nothing else.
The lone bright spot for Toronto off the bench today was Amir Johnson, who shot 6-of-9.
