The Charlotte Hornets currently sit at the 10th spot in the Eastern Conference and are just 1.5 games behind the eighth seeded Miami Heat. Their opponent tonight, the Indiana Pacers, sit one spot below at 11 and are two games behind the eighth seed.
Needless to say, tonight's game is huge if the Hornets want to make the NBA Playoffs in a few weeks.
The Hornets could win tonight. They should win tonight. But if their recent play is any indication, even the easiest of games are not guaranteed wins.
