Another day, another game.
This will be an ugly game. *clears throat* Nicolas Batum, Cody Zeller, Al Jefferson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and possibly Jeremy Lamb will be unavailable tonight, meaning that Spencer Hawes and Jeremy Lin are starting alongside Kemba Walker, P.J. Hairston, and Marvin Williams. There's a chance only nine players will be available, so don't be surprised if Walker and Williams play upwards of 40 minutes tonight. Yeah.
On the bright side, the Magic aren't very good. Their young pieces are nice but far from finished products, and while they play hard (thanks, Scott Skiles), they're prone to making poor decisions with the ball. So this game is certainly winnable, even with the flood of injuries.
Grab your snacks and get to a TV. It's time for Hornets basketball!
