Matchup to Watch

Cody Zeller vs. Greg Monroe: Monroe was serving as sixth man for a while before coach Jason Kidd returned him to the starting lineup.

Observations

▪  The Hornets won in Milwaukee earlier this season by shifting to a bigger lineup, starting rookie Frank Kaminsky and moving Marvin Williams to small forward.

▪  The Bucks lost two of their best guards to injury. Michael Carter-Williams had hip surgery and O.J. Mayo broke his leg.

Tap-ins

▪  This is the second game of a back-to-back. The Hornets had a road game Friday against the Detroit Pistons.

▪  This is the last game of the series with the Bucks this season. So far the Hornets are 2-1 this season versus Milwaukee.
