Matchup to Watch
Stephen Curry vs. Bobcats point guards: Former Davidson star Curry is coming off his best scoring game of the season – 44 points in a road victory over the Utah Jazz. The Warriors haven’t played since Friday, so they’re well-rested.
• Arguably the Bobcats’ two best victories this season were home wins against the Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers. A caution: The Warriors are playing far better now than they were in early December when they lost in Charlotte.
• Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker (ankle sprain) and Warriors forward David Lee (shoulder and hip injuries) practiced Monday, so there’s a good chance both will play in this game.
• Mark Jackson is a win away from his 100th NBA coaching victory just over 21/2 seasons into his tenure with the Warriors .
• The Warriors made a trade with the Boston Celtics recently, acquiring Jordan Crawford to add backcourt depth. Crawford hasn’t done much yet, averaging about six points in 15 minutes per game.
