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.

Observations

• 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.

Tap-ins

• 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.

Did you know?

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