Matchup to Watch

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist vs. Marvin Williams: Kidd-Gilchrist is coming off his worst game of his rookie season. Williams didn’t amount to much as a high pick. Kidd-Gilchrist might want to avoid Williams’ drift toward irrelevance.


• The thing intriguing about this game is the talent Utah might allow to hit the open market. Will the Bobcats pursue Al Jefferson and/or Paul Millsap?

• Kemba Walker should dominate Earl Watson.


• So does either Ben Gordon or Tyrus Thomas get to play any time soon?

• Josh McRoberts has played well in bits and pieces. When do they test him when the game is still in doubt?
