Game Overview: We're in for a treat tonight, aren't we. Honestly, can we just not talk about the matchups or anything much and just bask in the glory that is a game with a combined record of 15-65? And because I'm a straight-shooter, Tex -- I'll just lay it out there that I haven't seen a minute of this Hornets team. Maybe if I had the time I'd watch a spare quarter here and there, but with Eric Gordon out, as well as a bunch of other players, I can't just be like, "OH GUSTAVO AYON, I'LL STAY UP AN EXTRA HOUR TO WATCH HIM!" Sorry, Hornets fans. I've talked to At The Hive's Rohan Cruyff and he tells me they mostly win based on sheer will and playing their guts out. They have a problem with turnovers because they're not very good at the whole basketball thing what with injuries and stuff, which may be why they have 31 losses. But hey, I'm just guessing here. Rohan also told me that Chris Kaman is their biggest shot creator lately, which is pretty boss. They also have/had some players named Jeff Foote, Carldell "Squeaky" Johnson, Donald Sloan and Lance Thomas. So maybe they could start up a 1940s swing band. Or franchise an Eckerds Drug store. Is that still a thing? Rite-Aid? Whatever. Fight the power. Start a new Eckerds, Carldell. You can do it.

Key Matchup: Bismack Biyombo vs. Chris Kaman -- Kaman's pretty good at creating his own shot and he's pretty strong, so it should be interesting to see how Biyombo plays him, fighting with his own strength and a clear advantage in athleticism.

Trevor Ariza still exists.
