Charlotte Hornets vs. Miami Heat GameThread

The Hornets take on a division rival tonight. Chat with other Hornets fans in the comments below!

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Charlotte Hornets are still underperforming at this point in the season and it’s unclear when or if they’ll figure out what’s preventing them from playing playoff basketball. They’re talented enough on paper, but thus far things haven’t worked out in their favor.

Tonight, they play a division rival, the Miami Heat. These games will matter a lot if the Hornets end up sneaking into the playoffs.

You can read Zach Junda’s excellent preview of tonight’s game here.

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 Heat
Kemba Walker PG Goran Dragic
Nicolas Batum SG Dion Waiters
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Josh Richardson
Marvin Williams PF Justise Winslow
Dwight Howard C Kelly Olynyk

Projections for the Heat could be way off. They’re pretty banged up right now so their rotation isn’t exactly clear.

Tipoff is at 7:00 p.m. EST.
