Zeller finished with nine points on 4-of-7 shooting, five rebounds (four offensive), an assist, two steals, a blocked shot and four turnovers in 24 minutes.
The most impressive part of Zeller's line was his four offensive rebounds, an area the Bobcats will need to be much better if they are to improve this season. Al Jefferson, who the Bobcats signed to a free agent deal over the summer, will obviously help with that as well. He had nine rebounds on Tuesday night.
Zeller will need to work on keeping turnovers to a minimum if he wants to remain on the court for extended periods of time. His four miscues were more than anyone else on the team, including point guards Kemba Walker (two) and Ramon Sessions (two).
The key to Zeller's season, in my opinion, will be his ability to guard NBA power forwards. He struggled at times to defend Atlanta's Paul Millsap on Tuesday.
