Matchup to Watch
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist vs. Joe Johnson: With the injuries the Nets have experienced, they need Johnson to come forward as a first scoring option. He’s been strong in crunch time. Kidd-Gilchrist, by his own description, is the Bobcats’ “middle linebacker.”
Did you know?
You don’t want the ball in Johnson’s hands in the last minute of a tight game. He’s made 13 of 16 shots from the field as a Net in situations where Brooklyn is either tied or trails by three or fewer points..
