Matchup to Watch
Gerald Henderson vs. Victor Oladipo: Henderson is coming off an awful game in Philadelphia (2-of-14 from the field). Oladipo is one of the best rookies in this class.
• Bobcats backup center
, the seventh pick in the 2011 draft, didn’t play at all Wednesday against the Philadelphia 76ers. This was his third “Did Not Play, Coach’s Decision” this season..
• Magic point guard
has spent all 10 of his NBA seasons with the Magic. That is the eighth-longest tenure with one team among active NBA players. But he seems a prime candidate to be moved at the trade deadline.
• Oladipo and Bobcats rookieCody Zeller
were teammates at Indiana.
• For the second straight game the Bobcats will go against a coach (Jacque Vaughn
) who came up under San Antonio’sGregg Popovich.
