Three points:

  • Hey, D.J. Rookie point guard D.J. Augustin is coming off his two best games as a pro, averaging 23.5 points, 5.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds, and 0.5 turnovers on 51.4 % shooting. He hit 7-11 from outside last night against the Hawks. He appears to be a pretty quick study after struggling early on. In his first two games in the NBA, Augustin averaged 8.0 points, 3.5 assists, 0.5 rebounds, and 4.0 turnovers on 33.3 % shooting.

  • Slow 'cats. A day after holding the top-scoring team (minus its top two scorers) in the NBA to 87 points, the Bucks face the league's lowest-scoring unit. The Bobcats are 26th in offensive efficiency. They also contrast New York as one of the league's slowest teams (28th in pace) despite having some individuals who can run, like Raymond Felton, Gerald Wallace, and Augustin.

  • Weekend winners. The Bobcats are 0-7 from Sunday-Thursday but 3-1 on Friday-Saturday, with wins over the Heat, Hornets, and Jazz, all at home. They did lose in Atlanta last night.
