Charlotte picked up a road win in Memphis on Wednesday night, 118–107. Kemba Walker scored 22 and Nic Batum, Tony Parker and Jeremy Lamb combined for 52 points. Mike Conley and Marc Gasol combined to score 53 for Memphis.
Apparently, some think Charlotte could be a potential suitor for Gasol, who the Grizzlies have decided to shop, but can Charlotte really take on more salary, especially with Walker and Lamb coming into free agency? Gasol will be owed over $25 million next season in the final year of his deal.
It does appear Charlotte is committed to getting a playoff spot, though it won’t be any better than seventh or sixth, at absolute best.
The Hornets are a net-negative rebounding team. The only player who averages more than six boards per game is Cody Zeller, who is out until at least the start of next month, if not the middle.
The Bucks didn’t play on Wednesday night but their path to the Central Division title got easier after the unfortunate leg injury suffered by Victor Oladipo.
The extent of the injury isn’t yet known as I write this in the early morning on Thursday but it would appear he’s done for the year. That leaves the division wide-open for Milwaukee to coast to a title.
Of course, the Bucks were ahead before the injury and look like the best team in all of the Eastern Conference. They’re going to be especially tough to beat in the playoffs with home court advantage. Remember, they went 3–0 in Milwaukee and 0–4 in Boston in last year’s first round.
Milwaukee has the highest margin of victory in the NBA, the best record, the fifth-best offense and the top defense. Will the Bucks make a move at the deadline? This feels like the season to push the chips into the middle and make a run at the Finals.
