(Sporting Alert) — It might just be a preseason exhibition, but when the New Orleans Hornets and the Charlotte Bobcats take the court again tonight, there will be lots of young talents on display.
One in particular will be the match-up between the the NBA top two draft picks in Anthony Davis of the Hornets and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist from the Bobcats.
Davis, who was a member of the USA Olympic team in London in the summer, scored 22 points, pulled down nine rebounds and had a blocked a shot in New Orleans’ 97-82 win in preseason Tuesday night.
Former NCAA star Kemba Walker and Kidd-Gilchrist each scored 10 points in the defeat for the Bobcats.
Others to look out for tonight are rookie Austin Rivers and Robin Lopez of New Orleans, while besides Walker and Kidd-Gilchrist, Ben Gordon and Brendan Haywood should also provide some useful contributions for Charlotte.
