New, comments

The Hornets desperately need to start stringing together some win streaks and have an excellent chance to get the ball rolling against an okay-but-not-that-great Blazers squad tonight. Hop on down to the comments to chat about tonight's game!

Hey, you up?

Tonight, the Charlotte Hornets take on the Portland Trail Blazers in the second game of a back-to-back. Deep down, I hope the Hornets lost last night so they can double down on winning tonight's game against the Blazers. Probably not the case, but one can hope.

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 Trail Blazers
Kemba Walker PG Damian Lillard
Nicolas Batum SG C.J. McCollum
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Pat Connaughton
Marvin Williams PF Al-Farouq Aminu
Dwight Howard C Jusuf Nurkic

The Hornets, sans Cody Zeller, are totally healthy. The Blazers, however, are without Wade Baldwin, C.J. Wilcox, and Meyers Leonard. None of those guys are really rotation players so the effect of their respective absenses on the outcome of tonight's should be negligible.

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