Matchup to Watch
Chris Bosh vs. Bismack Biyombo: With all the Heats other stars injured, Bosh will draw a ton of defensive attention from the Bobcats.
• LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Mario Chalmers and Ray Allen are all expected to sit this one out. So ESPNs decision to nationally televise this game might have been a bit premature.
• Once the Heats chase of a record winning streak ended in Chicago, Miami started shutting people down to get them healthy for the playoff run.
• The Bobcats have won five of their past six home games, starting with an upset of the Boston Celtics on March 12.
Byron Mullens (sore ankle) and Jeff Taylor (sore plantar fascia) both missed Wednesdays victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. The Bobcats didnt practice Thursday.
• Josh McRoberts had a career-high 16 rebounds in the 76ers game.
