This will be Kemba Walker's first game since dropping 52 points on the Utah Jazz Monday, and judging by his comments after that game, he's already focused on improving his performance, not dwelling on it. He's playing against one of the NBA's best at the point guard spot, Russell Westbrook, and we all know Kemba's not one to back down from a challenge.
Then again, the Thunder are a very good team and could roll over the Hornets in the first half. A lot will depend on how well Kemba guards Westbrook and how well Nicolas Batum guards Kevin Durant. We'll see.
Jeremy Lamb is a gametime decision after being listed as questionable. He is expected to take part in pregame warm ups.
Anyway, grab your snacks and get to a TV. It's time for Hornets basketball.
