Walkers's Tough And-One
THE RESULT
The Cavaliers season-high 65 first-half points were too much for the Bobcats to overcome as they ended a five-game road trip with a 122-95 loss to the Cavs on February 6 in Cleveland. Twelve different Bobcats scored in this one, led by 15 points from Byron Mullens.

TURNING POINTS
The Bobcats went on an 8-2 run to start the second quarter and cut it to a seven-point game. The Cavs responded by holding the Cats scoreless for the next four minutes, countering with a 12-0 run and putting the Bobcats down by 21… During the second quarter, the Cavaliers built their lead to as many as 28 points behind 13 points from Tristan Thompson in the frame… The Bobcats couldn’t seem to ignite a comeback in the second half and were down by double digits throughout the third and fourth quarters.

INSIDE THE BOX SCORE
The Cavaliers couldn’t miss on the offensive end for the majority of the game. They shot 64.6 percent (42-for-64) for the first three quarters before being held to only 37.0 percent (10-for-27) in the fourth. The Bobcats shot well above their season average, finishing 46.8 percent from the floor and 40.0 percent from 3-point range. However, the difference maker could be the number of shot attempts; the Bobcats only took 79 shots, where as the Cavaliers had 92 looks at the basket. Part of that may be attributed to the fact the Bobcats had 13 turnovers, but the Cavaliers only had six… The Bobcats, who like to score in transition, were taken out of their comfort zone and only had five fastbreak points to the Cavaliers nine… Cleveland dominated down low, outrebounding the Bobcats (45-37) and scoring more points in the paint (50-30). The Cats did a good job of converting second-chance points, where they outscored the Cavs, 18-14.
