The Hornets are 5-17 since Dec. 31 and the Raptors are 8-14 since that same day. Both are sliding down the Eastern Conference standings and clawing to hold on. The Raptors traded for Serge Ibaka yesterday in an attempt to solidify their roster. We'll see if it works out.
By the way, check in on our Facebook page after the game for a live broadcast with Steve Forrest. He'll be recapping the game over there and taking your questions.
Here's what you need to know to tune in:

So, some bad news. Cody Zeller, Miles Plumlee, and Ramon Sessions are all out tonight. Hornets head coach Steve Clifford might actually have to play Christian Wood, Mike Tobey, and Ray McCallum out of necessity. But rumors are floating around that he might just play Marvin and maybe even MKG at center instead. Yeesh.
For the Raptors, only Patrick Patterson is out. Ibaka will not suit up for the Raptors tonight.
Here are tonight's projected starters:
|Kemba Walker||PG||Kyle Lowry|
|Nicolas Batum||SG||DeMar DeRozan|
|Michael Kidd-Gilchrist||SF||DeMarre Carroll|
|Marvin Williams||PF||Jared Sullinger|
|Frank Kaminsky||C||Jonas Valanciunas|
