Game Overview: Last time around, Deron Williams came into the Cable Box and dropped 57 points on the Bobcats and narrowly defeated the Bobcats by three. Fair to say, things should go differently this time around. Charlotte has Bismack Biyombo back from injury, which should solidify their interior defense and the Nets lost Brook Lopez to injury once more. This takes away a whole dimension of their offense and ability to space the floor. They're going to rely more on Williams and MarShon Brooks and even Kris Humphries in the post. It might be beneficial for the Bobcats to put Henderson on Williams or Brooks, depending on who's feeling it more.

Key Matchup: Gerald Henderson vs. Feller He's Defending -- the reason I say that is because I think Henderson needs to defend Williams or Brooks, depending on who's scoring more. Safe to say, DeShawn Stevenson isn't going to go on any scoring binge. Offensively, the Bobcats need to see Henderson get to the hoop like he was before his injury, drawing fouls and scoring efficiently.
