Matchup to Watch
• The Bobcats might get back point guard
, who has missed the past two games with a right groin injury. They could use him against Hawks point guardJeff Teague
, a former Wake Forest star. Teague is having a big season after the Hawks matched an offer sheet from the Milwaukee Bucks.
• The Hawks have won 11 straight over the Bobcats. It’s hard to say how the Hawks will play after clinching the last playoff spot in the East on Saturday. They can’t move up in the standings.
• The Hawks have been playing of late without rookie centerPero Antic
due to an ankle injury.
• Bobcats coachSteve Clifford
has raised concern recently about the Bobcats’ receding transition defense, which had been a stable of this team’s success.
