Kemba Walker vs. John Wall: For the second straight game Walker is matched against one of the NBA’s most explosive point guards. Walker did just fine against Denver’s Ty Lawson Monday.
• There was a huge sense of urgency that the Wizards make the playoffs this season. They demonstrated that with the early trade for Marcin Gortat because they couldn’t wait for Emeka Okafor’s recovery from a neck injury. Recently they traded for point guard Andre Miller and signed big man Drew Gooden.
• The Bobcats are 1-8 this season within the Southeast Division (sole victory over Orlando). This is the first of three remaining games against the Wizards.
• The Bobcats hope to get back shooting guard Gerald Henderson, who has missed five games with a calf strain.
• The Wizards have been without big man Nene, who is suffering from a severe knee sprain.
Bad as the Bobcats have been within their division, they have a combined 18-10 record against the Atlantic and Central divisions.
