The Bobcats (16-24) are in the midst of a bad losing slump, losing 10 of their last 12 games, as they seek to change their fortunes against an Orlando Magic Team that has lost nine games in a row.
The biggest problems for the Cats as of late has been their Porous defense ( 106.2 Points allowed in their last 10 games) and a lack of scoring from key starters and the bench. Although Kemba Walker has played well, averaging Career highs in scoring (19.0) and rebounds (4.4), the rest of the roster has struggled to be consistent.
The Return of Micheal Kidd-Gilchrist should alleviate some of these issues, particularly on defense,but the rest of the starting line up and key bench players will need to get back on track if the Bobcats will have any chance of making the playoffs this season.
This will be the second of four games against the magic this season, the Bobcats lost their first game against the Magic 92-83.
