Matchup to Watch

Kemba Walker vs. Brandon Knight: Walker has been spectacular of late, scoring 20 or more points in each of his past five games. Knight is getting a fresh start with the Bucks after playing for the Pistons.

Observations

The Bobcats have had an easy time against the Bucks this season, winning by 24 in Milwaukee and 16 in Charlotte.

Ex-Tar Heel John Henson had three straight double-doubles before sitting out Saturday’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers with a sore knee.

Milwaukee’s Khris Middleton had a big game in Charlotte last time with 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting.

Who gets the start at small forward – Anthony Tolliver or Chris Douglas-Roberts – for the Bobcats will likely change game-to-game based on the match-up.

Tap-ins

The Bucks have lost three in a row at Time Warner Cable Arena.

Henson is the latest of a very long list of injuries that are wrecking the Bucks’ season.

After tonight, the Bobcats get a three-day break from games for Christmas.

Did you know?

The Bucks are the team that originally drafted Bobcats backup point guard Ramon Sessions.
