This is my first one so work with me, its gonna be a tough matchup for Okafor, but he should be able to have his way with Kenyon. As of late Emeka has shown a pretty decent outside jumper, lets hope it falls and a big night from Bogans, Kapono, and Carroll is in the process.

Beautiful :laugh:

Carmello will probably torch us, unless he has another terrible game. Okafor/Martin will be a good matchup IMO, with Okafor winning it

Bobcats: 102
Denver: 107

lol, why? Kenyon is hardly a great scorer, a breakaway dunks and put backs don't count as post moves, and other than that, hes not good for much on offense. Okafor would have his hands full with Duncan, with Garnett, Dirk, or Shaq, but Martin?

Kenyon has a very effective Jump Hook, but takes too many 17 foot jumpers. Very few of his dunks any more come from breakaways. Lately they all come from within the flow of the offense. Also, you are forgetting about the other side and that is Kenyon's defense. However, with the likely scenario of Camby not playing and Elson not staying out of foul trouble, I'm not sure how much time Kenyon will spend defending Okafor.

(You even capitalized IF)
My point exactly, IF he plays Okafor will have a problem, Kenyon isn't consistent.

thats not what you said. read your own post. you said he should have his way with kenyon. you never mentioned anything about if kenyon plays or not.
Your right....so you are saying he is inconsistent, because you said if he plays. I just think Okafor is a better and smarter player than Kenyon, so he will have his way. But we'll see won't we?

14-4 Denver run, we also let that happen. It really annoys me, we will be close for a while, then we let the other team just go off

29-17 at the end of the first quarter

- Bogans has 6 points
- Okafor has 3 rebounds
- Carmello has 11 points

We shot 6-22 from the field, let's hope we can actually make some shots in the 2nd quarter

How do define inconsistent?

Right now, both Camby and Kenyon are dealing with injuries and Nene is on the IL. So between the two of them, they have made sure that at least of them is playing each game.

As for the second part it doesn't look like we will see until next season. I'll just say that my opinion is the opposite of yours.

I'm starting to worry, we seem to start quarters off with a bang (we were 10-4 at one stage this quarter) but we jsut struggle to finish them off
