The Hornets take on the Rockets. Lets talk about it.

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Charlotte Hornets take on the Houston Rockets tonight and the Rockets are kinda struggling this year to put it lightly. So far they've fired their coach, dealt with rumors of Dwight Howard wanting out of town, and James Harden is once again a massive joke for his defense. It's all falling apart in Houston, and it's hard to believe this team was in the Western Conference Finals just one season ago.

That said, Houston has been turning it around lately and Charlotte hasn't been playing their best basketball as of late. It would be nice to see the Hornets get things back on track for the holidays with a win over a struggling Rockets team. If not, then Charlotte could be heading into Christmas on a small slump, anSd that's not good considering how great a start they had to the season.
