Matchup to Watch
Tim Duncan vs. Cody Zeller/Marvin Williams: The Hornets might need all their power forwards’ fouls to contain former Wake Forest star, and future Hall-of-Famer, Duncan.
• The Spurs have looked beatable of late, losing four of their last seven entering Tuesday’s game in Washington. However, the Bobcats/Hornets have lost their last seven meetings with the Spurs.
• Former North Carolina player Danny Green has become a solid contributor to the Spurs, having already made 500 3s in San Antonio.
• The Spurs have been missing Kawhi Leonard (bruised right hand) and Manu Ginobili (back spasms).
• The Hornets expect to get back Lance Stephenson (pelvic sprain) after a 14-game absence.
