Charlotte Bobcats - Minnesota Timberwolves: Observations

•  Charlotte Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said pre-game that small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s first two practices since breaking his left hand in early December went well. Kidd-Gilchrist got plenty of contact both days without a setback, Clifford has praised Kidd-Gilchrist for well he worked at staying in shape during his layoff.

The plan is still for Kidd-Gilchrist to play his first game Tuesday at home against the New York Knicks.

•  Nice gesture by the Minnesota Timberwolves to welcome back Bobcats center Al Jefferson with a video on the scoreboard during an early-game timeout. Jefferson played in Minneapolis for several seasons before being traded to the Utah Jazz. He was a popular guy around the Twin Cities.

•  This is the unpredictable team the Timberwolves are; they’ve won in as many blowouts as any team this season but they’re 0-10 this season in games decided by four or fewer points.

•  Saturday’s opponent, the Chicago Bulls, might be depleted, but they’re underwater. The way the Bobcats have played of late, it’s hard to see how they win in the United Center.
