Matchup to Watch

Bismack Biyombo vs. Nikola Vucevic: Vucevic is averaging a double-double plus more than a block per game. That’s the sort of efficiency at both ends the Bobcats would love to get from Biyombo.

Observations.

• Thanks to the All-Star break, this is the Bobcats’ first game since Wednesday in Indianapolis. They melted down in the second half against the Pacers with some horrible shooting.

• The Bobcats won their last game in Orlando, overcoming a back injury that shelved Gerald Henderson in the second half.

• The Bobcats convened in Orlando on Monday night for a late practice.
