The Charlotte Hornets (11-8) are at home playing yet another of the NBA's worst squads, the Minnesota Timberwolves (5-14) tonight. The Hornets picked up a much-needed win against the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday and have a realistic shot of extending their record to 14-8 before playing the Cleveland Cavaliers on Dec. 10.
The Hornets already beat the Wolves back on Nov. 15 and shouldn't have much trouble pulling out another win tonight.
Here's what you need to know to tune in:
What: Hornets vs Timberwolves
When: Dec. 3, 2016 at 7 p.m.
Where: Spectrum Center, Charlotte, NC
TV: Fox Sports Southeast, NBA League Pass
Radio: WFNZ 610 AM, WFNZ 102.5 FM
Marvin Williams is out tonight, but everyone else is suited up and good to go. Hornets head coach Steve Clifford said before the game that the earliest Williams will be back is Wednesday against the Detroit Pistons. For the Wolves, only Brandon Rush is out.
Here are tonight's projected starting lineups:
|Kemba Walker||PG||Ricky Rubio|
|Nicolas Batum||SG||Zach LaVine|
|Michael Kidd-Gilchrist||SF||Andrew Wiggins|
|Frank Kaminsky||PF||Karl-Anthony Towns|
|Cody Zeller||C||Gorgui Dieng|
