Charlotte Hornets at Los Angeles Lakers GameThread

A win on Saturday, a very narrow overtime loss on Sunday, and the Hornets are back at it tonight against the Lakers. If the boys in teal are to make the playoffs, tonight's a must-win game.

Let's give them credit.

The Charlotte Hornets have looked good lately. They managed to pick up a win in Sacramento on Saturday and barely lost to the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday. Tonight, they play the Los Angeles Lakers. If the Hornets are to make the playoffs, it's games like tonight's that they need to win consistently.

Here's what you need to know to tune in:

What: Hornets @ Lakers
When: Feb. 28, 2017 at 10:30 p.m.
Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
TV: Fox Sports Southeast, NBA League Pass
Radio: WFNZ 610 AM, WFNZ 102.5 FM

We have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that Cody Zeller is back. He'll come off the bench, though. The bad news is that Marvin Williams is listed as questionable. My guess is he joins Ramon Sessions and Miles Plumlee on the bench tonight. For the Lakers, Thomas Robinson is out.

Here are tonight's projected starters:

Hornets Position Lakers
Kemba Walker PG D'Angelo Russell
Nicolas Batum SG Nick Young
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Luol Deng
Christian Wood PF Julius Randle
Frank Kaminsky C Tarik Black
