Matchup to Watch
Kawhi Leonard vs. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: These are two of the most physical small forwards in the NBA, as demonstrated by their superior rebounding numbers.
▪ The Hornets will likely be without shooting guard Nic Batum for a while, after he suffered a hyper-extended knee in Wednesday’s road loss to the Detroit Pistons.
▪ The 40 free throws made and 49 free throws taken by the Hornets versus the Oklahoma City Thunder were both season highs in any one game in the NBA.
▪ The Spurs lead the NBA in free-throw percentage (.821) and 3-point percentage (.411).
▪ The Hornets have lost 11 of the past 12 meetings with the Spurs.
