What is there to say about tonight's game that hasn't already been said?

The Charlotte Hornets are at home playing the scorching Oklahoma City Thunder after losing to the Raptors in Toronto last night. While they controlled most of last night's game, they were unable to stop Lowry in crunch time and failed to score enough to keep the Raptors at bay.

Unfortunately for the Hornets, tonight's game isn't any easier. The Thunder have two of the ten best players in the league right now, and they've won eight of their last 10 games. They're as legit a team as the Western Conference has to offer, Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs aside.

Some bad news: Nicolas Batum is out tonight. On the plus side, both Jeremy Lin and Spencer Hawes are available after missing the Hornets' last couple of games.

Anyway, grab your snacks and get to your TV. It's time for Hornets basketball!
