KEY GAME INFORMATION
CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: KEMBA WALKER has become a more efficient scorer as well as a capable distributor. He'll sacrifice some shots with Al Jefferson coming in, but he should have more space with which to operate. Down the line, he could mesh nicely with pick-and-pop four Cody Zeller . . . GERALD HENDERSON transformed from a raw athlete into an effective, efficient scorer in the second half of last season. He should be the No. 2 or 3 option this year . . . RAMON SESSIONS is locked in as a sixth man. He's not a shooter, but his ability to get to the line makes him an effective second-unit scorer . . . BEN GORDON seems to be going through the motions at this point. His real value this season is his enormous expiring contract. FORWARDS: MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST is going to be a quality NBA player for a long time, but he's not close to being a major factor offensively. He'll continue to defend and rebound effectively for a wing, but he's a No. 4 or 5 option on the offensive end of the court . . . JOSH MCROBERTS proved good enough to be a rotational player on a bad team last year. He has a chance to start early on while the Bobcats bring some young guys along . . . CODY ZELLER struggled against length and athleticism in college, so it seems the 'Cats think he can be more of a stretch, pick-and-pop four. If he proves to be a shooter, he's athletic enough and a good enough rebounder to be a solid NBA starter . . . JEFFERY TAYLOR is a forgettable second-unit player who can defend a couple of positions. ANTHONY TOLLIVER won't see the floor much, but he can stretch the floor with his shooting ability. CENTERS: We'll see how the Bobcats mesh with AL JEFFERSON, the NBA's worst defensive big man and a lane-clogging black hole on offense. He can score, and at (an incredible) $40 million-plus, Charlotte will run everything through him . . . BISMACK BIYOMBO will play some alongside Jefferson, as the Bobcats desperately need to cancel out Jefferson's defense. But the young big man figures to be used more sparingly this year . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD is still kicking around.
PHOENIX: GUARDS: ERIC BLEDSOE immediately becomes the Suns' best player. He dominated for stretches while backing up Chris Paul . . . GORAN DRAGIC and Bledsoe will play together since they're the two best players on this team. Dragic also has enough size to match up with most twos . . . After a disappointing stint as a starter, SHANNON BROWN will return to the second unit . . . KENDALL MARSHALL doesn't fit new coach Jeff Hornacek's up-tempo style. The Suns will move him if they can . . . ARCHIE GOODWIN looked lost at times at Kentucky, but his ability to get to the line bodes well for his NBA future . . . GERALD GREEN is the kind of athlete who could make an impact on an up-tempo second unit . . . MALCOLM LEE is here in case Marshall is dealt. FORWARDS: MARKIEFF MORRIS has some upside as a skilled stretch four. He's shown flashes over his first two seasons, and playing in Honracek's up-tempo system should only help him take the next step forward . . . MARCUS MORRIS is still a man without a position, a tweener in a bad way. The Suns will try to make him into an effective second-unit guy . . . CHANNING FRYE missed all of last season with a heart ailment, and the Suns don't seem to be expecting to get anything from him this season.CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT will keep the seat warm for Alex Len. He doesn't fit this up-and-down offense . . . ALEX LEN must become more assertive and the bust factor is high, but 7-footers with his mobility and touch don't come around often . . . MILES PLUMLEE could get minutes as a defensive specialist after making just 5-of-21 FG as a rookie.

*Bobcats-Suns Preview* ======================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Charlotte (21-27) at Phoenix (28-18), 9:00 p.m. EDT

Coming off an impressive road sweep, the Phoenix Suns look to match their longest winning streak of the season as they begin a home-heavy stretch.

While Kemba Walker is unlikely to play, the Suns may have to figure out a way to cool off Al Jefferson to reach that goal Saturday night against the Charlotte Bobcats.

Phoenix (28-18) may be one of the league's highest scoring teams with 104.9 points per game, but it showed the ability to win in variety of ways while taking all four games on its eastern road trip.

The Suns won a defensive battle, 99-90, in Cleveland to open the swing before outscoring Philadelphia 124-113 and Milwaukee 126-117. They then wrapped up the trip by beating NBA-best Indiana at its own game in a 102-94 victory Thursday.

Phoenix limited the Pacers to 43.7 percent shooting - including 1 of 15 from 3-point range - while becoming only the second team in 23 games to win in Indianapolis.

Goran Dragic had 21 of the Suns' 66 points in the first half - the most given up by the Pacers in a half all season.

"We are at our best when we start the game well," said Dragic, who ended up with 28 points and seven assists. "We played an up-tempo game, so I think they were a little bit tired."

Dragic has scored 22.5 per game and hit 45.5 from 3-point range in his last 17 - a stretch that began when high-scoring guard Eric Bledsoe went down with knee injury in a 107-88 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Dec. 30.

Now he'll try to lead the Suns to their fifth straight win overall - and fifth in a row over the Bobcats (21-27) - as they open a stretch with 12 of the next 15 on their own floor.

Dragic finished with 21 points and 11 assists in a 121-104 win over Charlotte in the last meeting in Phoenix on Dec. 19, 2012.

Walker and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist combined for 52 points on 18-of-28 shooting in that contest. Walker, however, isn't expected to play because of an ankle injury while Kidd-Gilchrist has struggled since missing six weeks with a broken hand.

Jefferson has stepped up with an historic tear, setting a franchise record by scoring 20 or more in 11 consecutive games to surpass the previous mark set by Jason Richardson in 2007-08. He's averaged 28.1 points and 12.5 boards over that stretch.

The veteran center finished with a career high-tying 40 points and 18 rebounds in a 110-100 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday as Charlotte moved to 2-0 on this four-game trip.

"I have those moments," Jefferson said. "They kept running plays for me and I kept scoring. In the first quarter, they weren't going down for me, but I just kept staying with it because I knew sooner or later it would start going down for me. "

Jefferson was still working his way back from a preseason ankle injury when he scored nine in 24 minutes of a 98-91 home loss to Phoenix on Nov. 22.

The Bobcats rank in the league's top 10 with a 44.2 defensive field-goal percentage, and they've limited opponents to 38.9 percent shooting in their back-to-back road wins.

They've won four of five against West teams, but have dropped seven of nine in Phoenix.
