The Wolves are in Charlotte looking to get two games over .500 against a resurgent Bobcats that features one of the better defenses in the league.

The Wolves are back on the road after four games at Target Center, tonight to take on a Charlotte Bobcats team that looks poised for the playoffs in the Eastern Conference, as they sit 7th with a 31-34 record. The Bobs feature several ex-Wovles: Al Jefferson (still doing his 20 and 10 thing), Anthony Tolliver, and Luke Ridnour, who was traded earlier in the year by the Bucks.

Similar to the Wolves, the Bobcats are a fairly high free throw-low foul team, so the battle of the whistles could be important tonight. They are also the number one defensive rebounding team in the league currently, so the Wolves ability to get on the offensive glass will be tested.

And Josh McRoberts.
