Heh. The Charlotte Hornets are suspended in air, momentarily steady, knowing that at any moment, the playoffs will be taken from them and they'll come crashing down to earth. But there's a chance -- it's small, but it's there -- that they string together a couple of good win streaks and creep into the playoffs. And that is the option they're trying to go with.
But to do that, they'll need to beat the Atlanta Hawks. No excuses.
Here's what you need to know to tune in:
