Matchup To Watch
Kemba Walker Vs Kyrie Irving: As the only two players in either starting lineup averaging more than ten points a game, this contest will be decided in the point guard matchup between Kemba Walker and former Duke star Kyrie Irving. Expect the winner of this position battle to also have his team on top at the end of 48 minutes.
With two injury depleted teams facing off, this is going to be an interesting, LeBron-less matchup between the Hornets and Cavs at the Hive tonight. But considering the mixture of inexperience and over-the-hill veterans Cleveland will have throw out onto the court, I’ll take Charlotte to win, breaking a three-game losing streak in the process. Hornets win 96-91.
