Who: Charlotte Hornets (3-3) AT Los Angeles Lakers (0-5)
What: Regular Season Game #7
Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
When: November 9th, 2014, at 9:30 PM EST.
Tonight marks the beginning of a road trip that I’ve been looking forward to since the schedule came out in August. The Hornets will face the Lakers, Trail Blazers, Suns, and Warriors over the course of the next seven days. As you can probably tell, this trip will tell us a lot about the Hornets. Tonight’s game looks to be the easiest, as they face a Lakers team that is yet to find themselves in the win column.
PG: Kemba Walker Vs. Jeremy Lin
SG: Lance Stephenson Vs. Kobe Bryant
SF: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Vs. Wesley Johnson
PF: Marvin Williams Vs. Carlos Boozer
C: Al Jefferson Vs. Jordan Hill
Matchup To Watch For
Big Al: I expect Jefferson to have a big game tonight. The last time he was in the Staples Center he had a monster game, totaling 40 points. A large part of that was LA not having anyone to guard him. Well, here we are 9 months later and that statement still holds true. Look for Jefferson to have his way against Jordan Hill tonight.
Looking at what the Hornets have ahead of them, tonight’s game is really critical. I like the matchups all across the board for Charlotte tonight. With that being said, I expect th convincingly. Hornets 95-Lakers 82.
Tonight’s game is set to tip off at 9:30 PM EST. The game can be seen on SportSouth and heard on the Hornets flagship station 610AM The Fan.
