The Kings are, shall we say, a mess. The roster is a smorgasbord of players with complicated histories on other teams, mostly related to chemistry. Many players are unaware of their roles. DeMarcus Cousins, the team's star player, is a fireball prone to bursts of exciting, emotionally-driven basketball. He's also not so fond of his head coach, George Karl.
The Hornets are riding a high after winning their last two games against the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets. The team's next several games are at home, so expect their winning percentage to creep up accordingly.
Tonight's game tips off at 7 p.m. You know the drill by now: Grab whatever snacks and beverages you need and make your way to the comments.
It's Hornets basketball time.
