The Charlotte Hornets are on a three-game winning streak y'all.

This afternoon, they hope to make it four straight with a victory over the Detroit Pistons. This isn't quite the Pistons squad the Hornets played back in January and in many ways it's a bit reminiscent of what the Hornets have going on now. I mean, check out those starting lineups.

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 today's projected starters:

Hornets Position Pistons
Kemba Walker PG Ish Smith
Nicolas Batum SG Reggie Bullock
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Stanley Johnson
Marvin Williams PF Blake Griffin
Dwight Howard C Andre Drummond

The Hornets are totally healthy. No aches, pains, nada. For the Pistons, Reggie Jackson has been cleared for practice but is still out indefinitely with an ankle injury. Jon Leuer is also out for the season.

This is going to be such a fun game. Dwight versus Drummond, Steve Clifford versus Stan Van Gundy...there are an abundance of story lines to keep an eye on.

Tip-off's at 1 p.m. EST.
