The Nets finish off their 3 game road trip in Charlotte, where they take on the expansion Bobcats. New Jersey will get one additional body on the bench bodies back, as Jabari Smith will be activated from the injured list, but Vince Carter and Travis Best are not ready to return from their injuries yet. The Bobcats have won 5 straight at home, including the last two in overtime against New Orleans and Houston. Emeka Okafor, who had a career-high 26 points against the Nets when these two teams met earlier in the month, has recorded 12 straight double-doubles, averaging 18.1 points and 13.2 rebounds per game in that stretch.
