I realize that a stat line of 2 assists and 16 turnovers is not overly impressive but the Charlotte Bobcats back-up center Bismack Biyombo is elite in one area. Rim protection. According to “Stats” at NBA.com Bismack is holding opponents to 39% shooting at the rim*.
Coach Steve Clifford is running out an excellent defensive squad this season. Al Jefferson and Biyombo are two of the twenty best defensive rebounders in the NBA. Clifford’s back-court of Kemba Walker and Gerald Henderson are both wonderful rebounding guards. Throw in back-up power forward Jeff Adrien (12 rebounds, 2 blocks/36 minutes) and the Bobcats defense may drag their very limited offense to a playoff spot this year.
