Matchup to Watch
Carmelo Anthony vs. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Jeff Taylor: Bobcats coach Steve Clifford likes that he has a variety of solid wing defenders. He needed them all in dealing with Anthony, who scored 32 on the Bobcats Tuesday in New York.
• The Knicks are scrambling to adjust how they’ll play without center Tyson Chandler, who is out several weeks with a broken bone in his right leg. It happened in a collision with Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker.
• With Chandler out, 7-footer Andrea Bargnani might play more center after starting at power forward with Knicks.
• The Bobcats have now gone four games without Al Jefferson, out with an ankle sprain. Jefferson did some light shooting before the Knicks game in New York.
• The Knicks have been without shooting guard J.R. Smith, serving a suspension for violating the NBA’s substance-abuse policy.
• Knicks rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. is the son of the former star point guard for the Miami Heat.
