Matchup to Watch
Kemba Walker versus Tony Parker: Walker is greatly improved this season. Parker was so good last season he was in the most valuable player discussion.
• The Spurs drew a big fine from the NBA recently for choosing not to play four veterans, including Parker and Tim Duncan, in a nationally televised game in Miami.
• San Antonio has one of the NBAs top benches, averaging 39.8 points this season.
The Bobcats have beaten the Spurs only once in seven tries in Charlotte.
• This is Boris Diaws first game in Charlotte since he got a buyout last season in time to the leave the Bobcats for the Spurs. Ex-Bobcat Stephen Jackson is out with a broken finger.
• This is the first of three straight home games, all against Western Conference opponents. The Golden State Warriors come in Monday and the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday.
