New, comments

Hey, remember when the Hornets played the Heat a week ago and lost in the most excruciatingly painful way possible? Me too. Expect the Hornets to play with purpose tonight.

The Charlotte Hornets play the Miami Heat tonight. These two teams played each other a week ago, a game in which the Hornets managed to lose a game that looked finished in the most perplexing way imaginable. That loss is still relatively fresh in the minds of the team, so I wholly expect them to come out with a lust for blood.

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 Heat
Kemba Walker PG Goran Dragic
Nicolas Batum SG Wayne Ellington
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Josh Richardson
Marvin Williams PF James Johnson
Dwight Howard C Hassan Whiteside

Cody Zeller is still out. Much like last week, a handful of players are out for the Heat: Dion Waiters, Rodney McGruder, Okaro White, A.J. Hammons, and Udonis Haslem. They do have Goran Dragic this time, however, and Tyler Johnson is expected to play tonight as well.

Tip-off's at 7:30 p.m. EST.
