I feel like a broken record.

Guys, the Charlotte Hornets can still make the playoffs. It's a slim chance, but the chance is there nonetheless. As things stand, they're three games back of the eighth seed and have seven games left in the season to get there. They'll need other teams to struggle a bit to make it to the postseason, but they also need to handle their own business. Losses are unacceptable.

Tonight's opponent is the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets have one of the most explosive offenses in the league this year in large part because of Nikola Jokic's passing ability. The Hornets will need to limit his ability to distribute which will likely mean denying him the high post. No easy task.

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

What: Hornets vs. Nuggets
When: March 31, 2017 at 7 p.m.
Where: Spectrum Center, Charlotte, NC
TV: Fox Sports Southeast, NBA League Pass
Radio: WFNZ 610 AM, WFNZ 102.5 FM

Only Brian Roberts is officially out for the Hornets tonight. For the Nuggets, only Will Barton is out tonight. With both teams more or less healthy, this should be a fun game.

Here are tonight's starters:

Hornets Position Nuggets
Kemba Walker PG Jameer Nelson
Nicolas Batum SG Gary Harris
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Danilo Gallinari
Marvin Williams PF Kenneth Faried
Cody Zeller C Nikola Jokic
