Matchup to Watch
Kemba Walker vs. Jrue Holiday: Two speedsters who are best in transition. The Sixers want to run as much as the Bobcats and often with more success.
• The Sixers have played great defense of late, holding opponents under 40 percent shooting in their past three games.
• Walker has 21 assists, compared to six turnovers, in his past four games against the Sixers.
• Ex-Bobcat Jason Richardson has a left knee injury will shut him down for the rest of the Sixers season
• Ex-Bobcats center Kwame Brown has fallen out of Philadelphias rotation, playing in only one of the Sixers past four games
• Former Bobcats assistant Jeff Capel is now on Philadelphias staff with Doug Collins.
