Charlotte Hornets vs Los Angeles Lakers GameThread

The Hornets hope to bounce back from a devastating loss against the Blazers a couple of nights ago. Chat with us in the comments about tonight's game.

Another day, another Charlotte Hornets game.

The Hornets are coming off a devastating loss to the Portland Trail Blazers (and before that, an equally devastating loss to the Utah Jazz), and hope to get back to their winning ways against the Los Angeles Lakers tonight. The Lakers are not good, so that's a positive.

Out tonight are Al Jefferson, Jeremy Lamb, Nicolas Batum, and Cody Zeller. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will play (and start!) his second consecutive game since tearing his labrum back in October. He looked just fine against the Blazers and will get major minutes tonight with Batum and Lamb out.

On a brighter note, Jeremy Lin is back! Lin tweaked his ankle against the Jazz last week and missed Friday's game against the Blazers. While his ankle still hurts, he's going to give it a go tonight and presumably start.

Grab your snacks and get to a TV. It's time for Hornets basketball!

(Oh, and chat with us about the game in the comments.)
