Hornets at Heat; October 9th, 2017

Gametime: 7:30 p.m. EST.

How to watch: Miami will broadcast the game on the SUN network. It is unknown whether the team will offer a stream of the game online.

The Charlotte Hornets will look to adjust to life without Nicolas Batum starting tonight, as they face the Miami Heat on the road.

Charlotte is 1-1 in preseason after coming from behind to defeat the Detroit Pistons. Rookie Malik Monk stood out, finishing with 19 points and hitting a clutch 3-pointer towards the end of the game.

Shooting guard Jeremy Lamb will start in place of Batum. He's off to a good start, averaging 17.5 points in two preseason games.

With Lamb in the starting five, keep an eye on how the bench unit adjusts.

Miami enters tonight 1-2 in preseason having lost two straight. They will be without Goran Dragic, who is being rested as the team controls his minutes in preseason following a lengthy summer in Europe. Dragic and his native Slovenia won this summer's Eurobasket.

Anyways, follow along tonight and discuss the action below!
