After getting a much-needed win against the Orlando Magic last night, the Charlotte Hornets are back at it tonight with a game against the Miami Heat. This is a big game for the Hornets, as if the Heat win tonight, they clinch the tiebreaker. That could have huge implications come April.
To make matters worse, this game isn't at home. The Hornets are in Florida. Granted, the travel's not that bad, but games like this are much easier with a home crowd behind you.
Tonight's projected starters are the usual suspects: Kemba Walker, Courtney Lee, Nicolas Batum, Marvin Williams, and Cody Zeller. For the Heat, expect to see Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade, Joe Johnson, Luol Deng, and Amar'e Stoudemire. Chris Bosh is listed as inactive.
These two teams match up extremely well on paper. We could be in for a load of fun.
Anyway, grab your snacks and get to a TV. It's time for Hornets basketball!
