Matchup to Watch

LeBron James vs. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: James has pretty much locked up a repeat as NBA most valuable player. He’s actually improved in most statitical categories from a year ago.


The streak has become such an attention-grabber that NBA TV made a decision Saturday to pick up tonight’s Heat-Bobcats game for national telecast.


The Bobcats have now lost 10 in a row to the Heat. Last Bobcats victory was March of 2009 before James and Chris Bosh came aboard the Heat.

Did you know?

How much has changed since James signed with Miami? The season before that, the Bobcats beat the Heat by 39 in Charlotte.
