The Bobcats dropped their opener 96-79 to the Cavaliers on the road. D.J. Augustin had 12 points, 2 assists (Jason Richardson had 4), and 4 turnovers in his NBA debut. The Bob's 20th pick Alexis Ajinca tallied 3 minutes and had 0 points, 2 rebounds, 2 steals, and one highlight rejection...by fellow rookie J.J. Hickson on him. Grats Alexis, you made Sportcenter's top plays in your first game! Larry Brown was actually off the bench coaching during the game and the Bobcats did cut the deficit to single digits after trailing 50-33 at the half but the Cavs showed who the more polished team was, oh and they have that Lebron guy, he's pretty good.
On the ice the Tampa Bay Lightning made their statement after we overlooked their team by beating the Sabres 5-2 in Buffalo. Steven Stamkos, whose name reminds me of this guy, had his first two career goals in the game. The Sabres have given up 10 goals in their last two games which have both been losses. Olaf Kolzig was the winning goalie...Olaf Kolzig! Not a good night for the ASD family of teams.
