After grabbing their sixth win in a row last night against the Detroit Pistons, the Charlotte Hornets are back at it tonight against the Houston Rockets. The Rockets are 4-1 over their last five games and beat the Boston Celtics last night.
The Hornets' starters are the usual group of Kemba Walker, Courtney Lee, Nicolas Batum, Marvin Williams, and Cody Zeller. For the Rockets, Patrick Beverley, James Harden, Trevor Ariza, Donatas Motiejunas, and Dwight Howard get the starting nod.
The Hornets lost last time the two teams played in what was an unbelievably boring game that saw a total of 71 free throw attempts, about a third of which went to none other than Harden. If tonight's anything like that, well, we're in for a long game. My fingers are crossed we're gifted watchable basketball. I hope yours are crossed too.
Anyway, grab your snacks and get to a TV. It's time for Hornets basketball!
