About the Bobcats: Charlotte is coming off a 99-98 loss at Miami on Sunday, its third defeat in four games. ... The Bobcats are last in the NBA in scoring (89.2 points per game), but third in fewest points allowed (91.8 ppg). ... The Bobcats were 0-16 all-time against the Mavs until Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 25 points and 12 rebounds during a 101-97 overtime Charlotte victory on Nov. 10 last year. ... Kemba Walker leads the Bobcats with 16.6 ppg and 4.1 apg, Al Jefferson averages 15.8 ppg and 8.4 rpg, Gerald Henderson averages 14.5 ppg, and Kidd-Gilchrist averages 9.3 ppg.

About the Mavericks: Dallas is in a funk, having lost four of its past five games. That includes blowing a 17-point lead in the third quarter and losing at Atlanta on Friday, 88-87. They followed that with a 112-106 loss at home to Minnesota on Saturday. ... PG Jose Calderon missed the Minnesota game with a bone bruise in his right ankle and his status is a game-time decision. ... Rookies Gal Mekel and Shane Larkin must direct the offense until Calderon returns, with Monta Ellis also occasionally running the point. ... Ellis is averaging 21.9 ppg and 5.6 apg, Dirk Nowitzki averages 20.6 ppg and 6.0 rpg and Shawn Marion 11.8 ppg and 7.3 rpg. ... DeJuan Blair is averaging 8.8 ppg and a team-high 7.8 rpg off the bench.
