Byron Mullens kept his foot on the gas pedal in the Bobcats' 100-93 loss to the Lakers on Friday, scoring 20 points on 8-of-18 shooting (1-of-4 3PTs, 3-of-3 FTs) with 12 rebounds, one steal, and one block in 39 minutes.
Give it to Charlotte, whatever they did rehabbing Mullens has allowed him to come out firing right out of the gate. He was aggressive tonight but did get tired late, which is to be expected of a player coming off injury like he did. He's a must-start player until he slows down. Gerald Henderson also went off with 20 and 10 of his own with three steals and a block.
