The tables have turned from their last meeting (a 93-81 Orlando Win) when the Magic were the short-handed squad. The Magic have Vince Carter back and Rashard Lewis returns from his steroid suspension as the Bobcats trade away Raja Bell and Vladimir Radmanovic, leaving themselves a bit thin.

Last time out against the Magic, the Cats managed just 2-17 from downtown as the Magic buried 9-25 from deep – the Bobcats need to narrow that gap to stay competitive, but that task is made all the harder with Lewis back on the court and Bell looking at realty in the Bay Area.
