Matchup to Watch

Kemba Walker vs. Brandon Knight: Walker has become a much more efficient playmaker in the past few weeks. Knight seems to be settling in with his new team.

Observations

• The Bobcats and Bucks did a trade-deadline deal that sent Ramon Sessions and Jeff Adrien to Milwaukee and Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour to Charlotte. Neal has provided the bench scoring the Bobcats needed. Ridnour is still adjusting to a new team and new role.

• Adrien has thrived as a Buck. Since the trade, he’s fourth in the NBA in rebounds per 48 minutes played (19.0).

Tap-ins

• Sessions is the Bucks’ first scoring option off the bench. He’s had seven games this month of 10 or more points.

• This will be the Bucks’ second day game in a row. The Knicks clobbered them at Madison Square Garden on Saturday.

Did you know?

If the Bobcats win Sunday, they will sweep a season series with the Bucks for the first time. Prior to this season, the Bobcats last won in Milwaukee in 2007.
