Matchup to Watch
Jrue Holiday vs. Kemba Walker: Two of the better young point guards in the Eastern Conference, both with a shoot-first approach.
• The Bobcats can’t defend effectively when they don’t protect the ball. They committed 21 turnovers and gave up 131 points in Milwaukee Monday.
• This is the first of four road games for the Sixers. The trip continues in Atlanta, Miami and Brooklyn. Any chance of catching the Bucks for the last playoff spot is contingent on this trip.
• The Bobcats had a 13-point lead Saturday in Philadelphia, but ended up losing to the Sixers by eight.
Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is expected back after missing the Bucks game with a family matter.
• Bobcats forward Byron Mullens has misseed the last three three games with a sore ankle.
