A matchup between two struggling teams (though not unsurprising), the Bobcats and the Nets also share injury woes: The Nets are missing two starters in Devin Harris and Jarvis Hayes, while the Bobcats continue to be without the services of Raja Bell and his backup Flip Murray. With Devin Harris being the best of the bunch by far, the Bobcats come out ahead on this exchange – and that is big for Charlotte right now as they need every advantage they can get, with the league's worst offense by about 5 points per 100 possessions (and with that blowout to the Celtics, the league's worst net efficiency at -14.5).
