Matchup to Watch

Monta Ellis vs. Gerald Henderson: Henderson has had a great two weeks. Ellis is as quick as anyone Henderson has to defend as a two-guard.

Observations

• The Bucks have won three of their past 10, but they still have a 51/2-game lead over Philadelphia for the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
• The Bucks have owned the Bobcats in the Bradley Center – 14-1 all-time.
• You think of Brandon Jennings as a shoot-first point guard, but he had 19 assists in a game this season against the Toronto Raptors.

Tap-ins

• Bucks center Larry Sanders deserves most-improved consideration. He has 10 or more rebounds in eight of his past nine games.
• Bobcats forward Byron Mullens has missed the past two games with a sore ankle.

Did you know?

The Bucks play great takeaway defense. They’ve had 47 games this season when they’ve forced 15 or more turnovers.
