Hoping to snap a four-game losing streak, the Hornets take on the Cavaliers up in Ohio tonight. This should be quite an entertaining game for a multitude of reasons, many of which Laieke laid out in his awesome preview.

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.

Here are this evening's projected starters:

Hornets Position Cavaliers
Kemba Walker PG Iman Shumpert
Nicolas Batum SG J.R. Smith
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF LeBron James
Marvin Williams PF Jae Crowder
Dwight Howard C Kevin Love

So, some major news--Nicolas Batum is back! Batum missed the first 12 games of the season but appears to be ready to play tonight. Julyan Stone and Treveon Graham, however, are still out. For the Cavs, Derrick Rose, Isaiah Thomas, and Tristan Thompson are out.

This is gonna be a good one, folks.

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