Key Match Ups:
Al Jefferson vs. Nic Vucevic Pt. III-Big Al goes up against his divisional nemesis for the third and final time this season. In their last match up, Jefferson dropped 20 points and 8 rebounds while Vucevic threw down 24 point and grabbed a season high 23 rebounds. Look for these two titans to put on another big show against each other.
The Bobcats are looking for their third consecutive victory and a second victory over their divisional foes.
Charlotte has only seven games left in the season and can look up a playoff berth with just three more wins. The Bobcats couldn’t close out late against the Magic in regulation last Friday, losing 110-105 . But that was on the road; the Bobcats are much better at home, having won 11 of their last 13 home games. On the other end, the Magic are the worst road team in the NBA this season and have only managed to scrap together a 4-34 record. The Bobcats last win against the Magic was at home, in mid January.
If the Bobcats win tonight they’ll have their third win in a row and end the season series 2-2 against the Magic.
Bobcats win 100-99
