The Charlotte Bobcats preseason schedule has been released, and it features two home games that won’t be played in Charlotte.
The ‘Cats will take on Miami in Raleigh at PNC Arena in Raleigh NC, and they’ll face New Orleans at the North Charleston Coliseum in Charleston SC.
They open the preseason at home against Washington at 1pm on Oct. 7, then head to New Orleans for an 8pm matchup with the Hornets Oct. 9. They face ‘Nola in Charleston at 7:30 on the 11th, the Thunder in OKC at 8pm the 16th, and the Pistons in Detroit at 7:30 on the 20th. The Bobcats round out their preseason schedule with that game in Raleigh against Miami on the 23rd at 7pm, a home game against Milwaukee on the 25th at 11am and a trip to Dallas to play the Mavs at 8:30pm on the 26th.
It’ll be interesting to see Michael Kidd-Gilchrist go up against Anthony Davis in back-to-back games, and with a decently difficult schedule, fans will get an early look at how good, or bad, their Bobcats might be in 2012/13.
