Matchup to Watch
Anthony Davis vs. Josh McRoberts: As expected, Davis is a 20-10 guy on a nightly basis. Davis clobbered the Bobcats in the second game of the season in New Orleans.
• The Bobcats are in a challenging stretch of four games in five nights. They were off Thursday after back-to-back victories over the Detroit Pistons.
• Ex-Bobcat Alexis Ajinca is back in the NBA and starting for the Pelicans. He never accomplished anything in Charlotte after the Bobcats acquired an extra first-round pick in the 2008 draft to choose him.
• Point guard Jrue Holiday, the Pelicans’ big offseason acquisition, is out with a stress fracture.
• Ryan Anderson, so good at stretching defenses at the power forward spot, is out with a herniated disc.

The Bobcats are three wins away from matching the victory total for the past two seasons combined (28).
