The Charlotte Hornets (5-6) play the scorching hot Boston Celtics (10-2) in Massachusetts tonight. Needless to say, it won't be an easy one for the boys in purple and teal. This is a must-watch game.

As usual, you can watch tonight's game live on Fox Sports Southeast or League Pass and listen live with WFNZ 610 AM or WFNZ 102.5 FM.

Check out Jason Fletcher's preview of tonight's game here. Here are this evening's projected starters:

Hornets Position Celtics
Kemba Walker PG Kyrie Irving
Jeremy Lamb SG Marcus Smart
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Jaylen Brown
Marvin Williams PF Jayson Tatum
Dwight Howard C Aron Baynes

MKG's back in the starting lineup! The Hornets've sorely missed him this year. In fact, the Hornets are 4-1 with him and 1-5 without him this season. Nicolas Batum's inching closer to his return but is still out tonight. Treveon Graham and Julyan Stone are also out. For the Celtics, Gordon Hayward and Al Horford are out.

Tip off is at 7:30 p.m. EST. Be sure to chat it up below!
