Matchup to Watch
Bismack Biyombo vs. Nikola Vucevic: Vucevic is averaging a double-double plus more than a block per game. That’s the sort of efficiency at both ends the Bobcats would love to get from Biyombo.
• Thanks to the All-Star break, this is the Bobcats’ first game since Wednesday in Indianapolis. They melted down in the second half against the Pacers with some horrible shooting.
• The Bobcats won their last game in Orlando, overcoming a back injury that shelved Gerald Henderson in the second half.
• The Bobcats convened in Orlando on Monday night for a late practice.
• Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu was recently suspended by the NBA after he tested positive for steroid use.
• The Magic lost power forward Glen Davis to a broken leg.
