PREGAME INFO


Last Season’s Results: Orlando rolled over Charlotte last season – winning all four contests.

Nov. 6: Dwight Howard posted 22 points and eight rebounds as the Magic edged the Bobcats.

Feb. 27: The Orlando Magic never trailed in a 100-86 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats.

April 6: Six Magic players scored in double figures to propel the Magic to an overtime triumph and a season sweep of the Bobcats.

Key Matchup: Ryan Anderson vs. Bismack Biyombo

Instant Analysis: The Bobcats will feature two rookies with bright NBA futures in this matchup. Biyombo and point guard Kemba Walker -- both top 10 selections in the 2011 NBA Draft -- have the Charlotte faithful excited about this upcoming season. But they still have plenty of learning to do.

"The adjustment between playing in college and the pros is that the guys are quicker and more athletic," Walker explained.

With Walker, backing up point guard D.J. Augustin, Biyombo may see more action. It's up to Ryan Anderson and Glen Davis to give him a proper league welcome.

Other Notables: The Magic are 20-8 all-time against the Bobcats. In four games against Charlotte last season, Howard averaged 20.8 points per contest.
