Another day, another night of Charlotte Hornets basketball.

Tonight, the Hornets are taking on the Orlando Magic at Time Warner Cable Arena. You can read Tucker Warner's excellent preview of the game here. The Hornets suffered a brutal loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Monday in a game that saw them revert to the worst version of the team. They couldn't make shots, couldn't defend, and ultimately came up short. The Mavs are decent, but let's be honest. The Hornets should've won.

The Magic are a much easier opponent, but shouldn't be taken lightly. The Magic whooped the Hornets back in December despite the Hornets being at essentially full health with only Al Jefferson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist missing out. These two teams match up well, and should provide us with an evening of exciting basketball.

Tonight's projected starters are Kemba Walker, Courtney Lee, Nicolas Batum, Marvin Williams, and Cody Zeller. For the Magic, Brandon Jennings, Victor Oladipo, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, and Dewayne Dedmon are expected to start.

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