CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: RAMON SESSIONS will have to adjust to a major downgrade in teammates, but he has the kind of versatile offensive skill set to be the focal point of this offense . . . The athletic GERALD HENDERSON has made strides the past two seasons. Realistically, his offensive skills are those of a No. 4 or 5 option . . . Coach Mike Dunlap is high on KEMBA WALKER, who was sometimes overwhelmed as a rookie. With a few new sets built in for him, he could thrive as a sixth man getting starter's minutes . . . BEN GORDON won't overtake Henderson, but should see big minutes as the Cats' only shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a D-League talent . . . MATT CARROLL, in the final year of his $27 million deal, symbolizes everything that's gone wrong under Michael Jordan. FORWARDS: Drafting MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST was as much about changing the losing culture as it was adding a piece they needed. MKG's statistical output is a question mark, but he'll see big minutes as a defensive stopper and intangibles guy . . . This team is seriously lacking in the post, where they may have no choice but to play TYRUS THOMAS for significant minutes. The talented but uber-underachieving big man claims to have added 20 pounds of muscle in the offseason. If nothing else, they might showcase him in a desperate attempt to get some trade value . . . Rookie JEFFERY TAYLOR figures to make the team and has the versatility and athleticism to be a respectable second-unit guy. CENTERS: Charlotte sees BISMACK BIYOMBO as a franchise cornerstone. He can certainly rebound and block shots, but his offense is atrocious . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD brings a veteran presence. At his age he can't go more than 15 or so minutes per night . . . BYRON MULLENS never saw a shot he didn't like. He'll get one more chance to prove he's an NBA rotation player, able to play the four or five . . . DeSAGANA DIOP is doing those things that DeSagana Diop does.
OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK can do whatever he wants inside the arc and will continue to be a shoot-first point guard . . . JAMES HARDEN will likely keep coming off the bench, but he'll also keep playing starter's minutes . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA is OKC's best perimeter defender. But his role won't become more prominent until the postseason . . . ERIC MAYNOR should be just about all the way back from his torn ACL. When healthy, he's one of the league's best backup point guards . . . DAEQUAN COOK will see limited minutes as a three-point specialist . . . REGGIE JACKSON's role will shrink to near nothing if Maynor is healthy. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT continues to do it all, and has done nothing but steadily improve each season . . . SERGE IBAKA is obviously an elite shot-blocker, but he continues to get lost in space. He's made some strides as a pick-and-roll defender, but that weakness is why he doesn't play 30 minutes per night . . . NICK COLLISON will continue to steal a lot of Ibaka's minutes because he defends the pick-and-roll better, and because he draws so many charges, he's almost as good in help situations . . . PERRY JONES III is an incredible athlete, but needs a year or two to learn the game . . . LAZAR HAYWARD is back as a 12th man. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS will continue to start, but is a part-time player. The Thunder are often better with a small lineup. While Perkins is a bruiser he is too easy to exploit as a defender in space . . . COLE ALDRICH could be ready for a slightly bigger role off the bench . . . HASHEEM THABEET is a reclamation project. There's a sliver of long-term hope, but he won't help this year.

*Bobcats-Thunder Preview* =========================


Charlotte (7-5) at Oklahoma City (10-4), 8:00 p.m. EDT

The Oklahoma City Thunder have dominated their recent matchups with the Charlotte Bobcats, but by all appearances, they would appear to have a more difficult opponent for the next one.

The Bobcats will seek to add to their best start in franchise history by earning their first win in Oklahoma City on Monday night.

The Thunder (10-4) have prevailed in five of their last six games against Charlotte and have found little competition in winning the last three, outscoring the Bobcats an average of 20.7. They took a 122-95 victory in Oklahoma City in the lone meeting last season en route to the franchise's first Western Conference title since relocating from Seattle after the 2007-08 season.

The Bobcats, meanwhile, made dubious history last season by finishing 7-59 - the worst winning percentage in NBA history. The hiring of Mike Dunlap as coach and a few key additions, however, have quickly changed the struggling franchise's fortunes.

Charlotte matched its victory total from 2011-12 on Saturday by prevailing 108-106 in double overtime at winless Washington. Former Thunder player Byron Mullens had season-high 27 points and eight rebounds to the lead the Bobcats to their sixth win in eight games.

Ramon Sessions contributed 21 points off the bench to help his team overcome the absences of Gerald Henderson (sprained left foot) and Tyrus Thomas (strained left calf), both of whom are out for "foreseeable future," according to Dunlap.

"We're trying to go from the losingest organization in the history of the NBA to establishing where people have to respect us," Dunlap said. "I don't know anything about wins. I do know about respect."

A victory over a Thunder team that has won nine of 11 could help Charlotte (7-5) get a little more respect.

Oklahoma City bounced back from Friday's 108-100 loss to Boston with a hard-fought 116-109 overtime victory in Philadelphia the next night. The Thunder missed their final seven shots in regulation but hit four key 3-pointers in the extra period. Kevin Durant had one of those as part of his season-high 37 points and Russell Westbrook had another while finishing with 30.

"We weren't making shots at the end, but I like the fact guys continued to stick with each other and trust each other," coach Scott Brooks said. "Trust isn't a word we throw around loosely. You're not always going to make shots, but if a guy is open, you have to trust he'll make the next one."

Since relocating, Oklahoma City has won all four home meetings with Charlotte. The Bobcats also lost in two visits to the city when the Hornets split time between playing there and in New Orleans from 2005-07.

Charlotte is 1-7 all-time on the road against the Thunder franchise and earned the lone win in Seattle on March 28, 2008.

The Bobcats' Kemba Walker, who averages a team-best 18.0 points, scored four on 2-of-7 shooting against the Thunder last season.
