CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Michael Jordan’s Bobcats enter the post-NBA All-Star break with their playoff hopes largely riding on the old-school game of big man Al Jefferson.

Jefferson and his back-to-the-basket style of play has helped the Bobcats win more games than they did all of last season and position themselves for their first postseason appearance since 2010. Charlotte (23-30) is currently the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference, a ½-game ahead of the Detroit Pistons.

Jefferson may be a dinosaur for the way he plays, but he’s far from extinct.

He’s in the midst of one of the most productive seasons of his 10-year career, averaging 20.1 points and 10.5 rebounds per game. His unique style of play makes him one of the more difficult players in the league to defend.
