Game Overview

The Hornets are possibly about to become a pretty dangerous if they have any luck. Eric Gordon could return tonight, giving them another scoring threat. With the improved play of Greivis Vasquez as a passer and scorer, a healthy Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson strong inside-out skills, and now a healthy Eric Gordon, the Hornets' offense could be scary.

New Orleans shoots pretty well from behind the arc and Vasquez is a talented distributor, which could stretch the Bobcats' defense to its limits. And with Davis in the paint, the Bobcats will not be able to be lax defensively anywhere on the court.

Conversely, the Hornets are rather dreadful at protecting the ball and forcing turnovers. Should the Bobcats be able to force turnovers and take New Orleans out of their normally slow pace by getting into transition a lot, they have a chance at turning the tables for their benefit.
