The Hornets will play not one, but two nationally-televised games

The NBA has released the team schedules for the second-half of the 2020-21 season.

After playing on ESPN once in the first half of the season, the Hornets will be featured in front of a national audience twice before the season’s over. One game will come against Kevin Durant, James Harden, Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets, and the other will be Kemba Walker’s second game back in Charlotte with the Boston Celtics.

Charlotte will also play three games on NBATV, which is basically the halfway point between a League Pass broadcast and national TV; they’ll play the Lakers, Clippers, and Bucks for anyone who is able to access NBATV.

The Hornets will also be allowing fans in the arena upon the conclusion of the All-Star break. North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has allowed pro and college teams to admit fans up to 15 percent capacity, which would be approximately 3,000 fans for the 20,200-seat Spectrum Center.

In regards to the actual games, there’s nothing out of the ordinary. The Hornets have a couple of long home-stands, and the usual West Coast swing. Let’s hope that Nicolas Batum doesn’t plan on having a revenge game in Charlotte three games before the play-in.
