The Charlotte Hornets are at home tonight taking on the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Wolves aren't a particularly good opponent, but they have a handful of good, young players that should entertain if nothing else.
Should the Hornets win tonight, they'll have won 12 of their last 15 games. Steve Clifford would also overtake Dave Cowens as Charlotte's third-most winningest coach in franchise history. This team's on an absolute roll right now, and there hasn't been a better time to be a fan. Goodness, this is fun.
Starters tonight are the usual suspects: Kemba Walker, Courtney Lee, Nicolas Batum, Marvin Williams, and Cody Zeller. For the Wolves, it's Ricky Rubio, Zach LaVine, Andrew Wiggins, Gorgui Dieng, and Karl-Anthony Towns. Keep an eye on Towns tonight. The Hornets don't have anyone that matches up all that well with him.
Anyway, grab your snacks and get to a TV. It's time for Hornets basketball!
