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.
CLEVELAND: GUARDS: There are some durability concerns, but KYRIE IRVING is on the verge of stardom. He should benefit from the arrival of Anthony Bennett, the kind of pick-and-roll weapon Cleveland has lacked . . . DION WAITERS is still a work-in-progress defensively, and this will likely be another developmental year. He might end up settling in as the leader of the second unit . . . JARRETT JACK seems likely to close out games, even if he doesn't technically start. He's a creative shot-maker who will play close to starter's minutes . . . C.J. MILES is more of a situational three-point threat. SERGEY KARASEV, a polished Euro import, could push him for that role . . . CARRICK FELIX doesn't figure to crack this rotation. FORWARDS: No. 1 overall pick ANTHONY BENNETT will see time at both forward spots, and he'll be a pick-and-pop weapon no matter where he's playing. The question is whether he'll defend well enough to stay on the court for 30 minutes . . . There should also be enough minutes for TRISTAN THOMPSON, who hasn't quite put it together. The 22-year-old has upside though, and is a bigger part of Cleveland's future than Anderson Varejao . . . EARL CLARK gives the Cavs a quality second unit player who can play extended minutes if Bennett is overmatched defensively . . . A starter last year, ALONZO GEE figures to be a second-unit glue guy, but might be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs. CENTERS: ANDERSON VAREJAO is once again healthy and once again trade bait. No matter what the starting lineup looks like, he'll play major minutes at the four and five . . . The Cavs are taking a flier on ANDREW BYNUM. With his knee problems, it'd be surprising if he could give them 20-plus good minutes per night . . . TYLER ZELLER is likely the odd man out until Varejao is dealt or Bynum gets injured.

*Bobcats-Cavaliers Preview* ===========================

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer

Charlotte (37-38) at Cleveland (31-45), 7:30 p.m. EDT

The Charlotte Bobcats are creeping closer to a playoff spot while the Cleveland Cavaliers' postseason chances are dimming quickly.

Al Jefferson looks to continue his recent success as the Bobcats attempt to put themselves on the verge of the playoffs by beating the Cavaliers for a fifth straight meeting Saturday night.

Charlotte (38-38) is close to just its second trip to the postseason in its 10-year history, with the other coming in 2010. The Bobcats are seventh in the Eastern Conference, 5 1/2 games ahead of ninth-place New York with six games left in the regular season - one more than the Knicks.

Since the teams split their four-game season series, Charlotte will need a win against Cleveland (31-46) and a New York defeat at Miami on Sunday to clinch a postseason berth.

The Bobcats have looked capable of doing their part of late, winning five of seven games while averaging 106.9 points - 10.2 higher than their season average.

"We're heading in the right direction," Jefferson said. "We're a team that's playing well right now. We've just got to continue to get better, and get ready for the playoffs.

"We're right there, but we've got to take it one game at a time."

Jefferson is playing a vital role over the past seven games, scoring 25.1 points per contest while pulling down 11.1 rebounds. The forward had a double-double in the first half Friday and finished with 29 points and 16 boards while sinking 13 of 24 shots from the floor in a 91-80 victory over Orlando.

He also led the way in a 101-92 win over Cleveland on March 7, scoring 28 points while making 12 of 18 from the field.

The Bobcats have won four straight meetings with the Cavaliers, one shy of their longest in the all-time series from Nov. 27, 2009-March 30, 2011.

They've held Cleveland to an average of 88.5 points in those wins, including an 86-80 victory - only their second in 16 all-time games there - in the most recent visit to Cleveland on Nov. 15.

Kemba Walker is averaging 9.8 points and 3.3 assists while shooting 32.7 percent from the field - 3 of 13 from beyond the arc - over his four visits to Quicken Loans Arena. However, he scored 20 points and dished out 14 assists against the Cavs last month.

While the Bobcats seem to be on their way to the playoffs, the Cavaliers are three games back of Atlanta for the eighth and final spot with five games to go.

Cleveland squandered a chance to move closer Friday, falling 117-98 to the Hawks while making 39.6 percent of its field goals and just 5 of 21 3-pointers.

"They kicked our behind from the beginning to the end," coach Mike Brown said. "No, it doesn't feel like it's over but the loss is very, very disappointing. The way we lost, it looked like we weren't playing for much out there."

Brown may be looking for improvement from Kyrie Irving and Luol Deng, who had 13 points each while combining to go 10 for 28 from the floor.

Irving hasn't been much better against Charlotte this season, averaging 15.7 points while going 1 for 15 from 3-point range and shooting 34.0 percent overall. That includes missing all seven of his 3s and finishing with 13 points March 7, while Deng and Dion Waiters each had a team-high 19 points in that lost.

Waiters has averaged 23.1 points in his last nine games.
