Matchup to Watch
Brandon Knight vs. Hornets backcourt: With rookie Jabari Parker done for the season, Knight becomes the Bucks’ most dangerous scorer. Playing alongside Kendall Marshall frees him up from some of his classic point-guard responsibilities.
• Hornets center Al Jefferson has been trying to play through a groin strain. The injury clearly limited him the last two games.
• The Bobcats/Hornets have won seven straight over the Bucks.
• The Hornets will again be without Lance Stephenson, recovering from a pelvic sprain.
• The Hornets have assigned rookie Noah Vonleh to the Fort Wayne (Ind.) Mad Ants of the NBA Development League.
• The team also assigned forward Jeff Taylor to the D-League, where he will play for the Austin (Texas) Spurs. Taylor has played in three games since his 24-game suspension expired this month.

Bucks center Zaza Pachulia is technically an original Bobcat. He was chosen in the 2004 expansion draft, then traded to Milwaukee in a pre-arranged deal. He and Gerald Wallace are the only players chosen in that process still playing in the NBA.
