Matchup to Watch

Al Jefferson vs. Nikola Vucevic: Vucevic had 24 points and 23 rebounds in the Magic’s upset last week of the Bobcats. He’s the sort of strong, bulky center who can jostle Jefferson out of his favored scoring spots, rather than try to defend the shot once Jefferson is already in optimum position in the post.

A big factor in the Bobcats’ 3-10 record within the Southeast Division; they’re 1-2 against the Magic.
