Matchup to Watch

Observations

• This is Bobcats center Al Jefferson’s first game against the Jazz, the team he played for the past two seasons.

• The Bobcats will unveil the Hornets logo they’ll use next season at halftime of this game.

• While the Jazz has struggled in general this season, the current starting lineup was 6-4 entering Friday’s game in Atlanta.

• The Jazz has already lost 61 player-games to injury this season.

Tap-ins

• The Jazz is seventh in the NBA in 3-point percentage (39.9 percent).

• The Jazz has won the last eight games against the Bobcats

•  Richard Jefferson, a 12-season veteran, has done a nice job of re-engaging his career in Utah.
