The Bobcats are last in the NBA in scoring (89.2 points per game), but third in fewest points allowed (91.8 ppg). ...

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. ...

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. ...
