Charlotte Hornets at Sacramento Kings gamethread

The Charlotte Hornets travel west to take on the Sacramento Kings. It's late night basketball time!

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

It's time for some late night basketball between the Charlotte Hornets and Sacramento Kings. Props to everybody that is staying up for this one. With everybody sick staying up late can cause you to get sick, but you're willing to risk it all just to watch the Hornets. That is some serious dedication on your part. Perhaps we'll all get lucky and Charlotte will go up 40 in the first half so we can get a nice early night in bed.

As for the game itself. This will be a battle between Eastern conference Player of the Week, Kemba Walker, and Western conference Player of the Week DeMarcus Cousins. Both have carried their teams over some impressive stretches, and a win here would be huge for both of them. Charlotte in particular would love to get this west coast trip off on a better foot than the last one.
