Charlotte Hornets

Observations: Charlotte Bobcats at Brooklyn Nets

•  The Charlotte Bobcats’ decision to sign DJ White to a 10-day contract (it will happen later this week) demonstrates how hard it is to find an NBA-quality center off the street this time of year. If nothing else, the 6-foot-8 White can be a practice player, if coach Steve Clifford wants to get Al Jefferson some off-day rest the remainder of the season.

•  There were plenty of No. 15 Bobcats jerseys sprinkled through the crowd at the Barclays Center. Point guard Kemba Walker was a high school star in New York City before playing in college at Connecticut. He has plenty of hometown fans.

•  Clifford said before the game the Bobcats failed even more than he thought during Monday’s loss to get the ball inside against the Atlanta Hawks. Al Jefferson got 10 shot attempts in his first 15 minutes Wednesday, so I guess that was addressed.

•  Just a coincidence, but it seems like David Jones referees every third or so game the Bobcats have played this season.

•  The best thing about the Nets’ new home, the Barclays Center, is about 10 subway lines stop just outside the arena. In a city where you look not to drive a car, it’s really convenient.
