5 things to watch: Spurs vs. Bobcats


The San Antonio Spurs (16-4) are back on the road as they face the Charlotte Bobcats (7-11) tonight in Charlotte.

The Spurs are coming off a 114-92 win at home versus the Rockets where six Spurs players scored in double-digits.

"Great start to a back-to-back. Good win for us,” said Tim Duncan (12 points, 12 rebounds) after the game, “we focused early."

The Bobcats are coming off a 108-93 loss to the Bucks on the road. Gerald Henderson led Charlotte with 19 points in his third game back from a sprained foot, but the Bobcats lost their sixth straight game.

And as the Spurs get set to face the Bobcats (who will be without DeJuan Blair who is out with a sprained left ankle) for their only visit to Charlotte, here are five things to watch for during the game:

• Charlotte is 1-6 all-time at home versus San Antonio.

• Charlotte is 6-2 this season in games decided by four points or less.
• Charlotte is 2-2 at home when leading at halftime.
• San Antonio's .818 (9-2) road winning percentage is the best in the NBA.
• San Antonio is 5-0 on the road when two-or-more Spurs score 20 points or more.
