Game Preview:

The Bobcats come into Atlanta struggling losing six of their last ten games. They have been having a hard time putting the in the basket having only topped 90 points one time in their last three contests while putting up a season low 62 in a loss to Boston on December 11th. Gerald Wallace sat out their last game with an ankle injury and remains questionable to play in Atlanta. The Hawks need to bounce back in a big way having lost twice this week already with another match-up with the Magic right around the corner on Monday. Atlanta already lost once to a struggling ball club this week and can ill afford to repeat the process at home against Charlotte.
