Hairston will start in place of the injured Michael Kidd-Gilchrist at the small forward position tonight; Gary Neal is inactive with a concussion.
After completing a rough 1-3 trip hindered by injuries out West, the Hornets will make their first appearance at the Cable Box in over a week tonight. The opponent: the Dallas Mavericks--a team off to a strong 7-3 start lead by their perennial superstar in Dirk Nowitzki. Unfortunately, the Mavs won’t provide that much needed break in the schedule for the Buzz after a four-game road swing, and should be another strong challenge for Charlotte
Matchup To Watch For
Al Jefferson Vs Tyson Chandler: One of the most skilled player in the league versus one of the best defensive opponents at the center position: this one should be fun to watch .
Based upon Charlotte’s schedule in the remaining weeks of November, the Hornets really need this one. And despite Saturday’s poor performance in California, the Buzz will come back home to play well against former Bobcat Tyson Chandler and Co. Hornets win 99-97.
