Matchup to Watch
LeBron James vs. (hopefully) Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: James is averaging nearly a triple-double this early season. The Hornets sat Kidd-Gilchrist to rest his sore lower back Friday versus the Toronto Raptors. They could sure use his defense in this one. The Hornets listed Kidd-Gilchrist as questionable to play Sunday.
▪ The Hornets beat the Cavaliers last season in Charlotte. Winning in Cleveland against the defending champs is a much taller task.
▪ Hornets point guard Kemba Walker scored a season-high 40 points Friday versus the Toronto Raptors and has scored 20 or more in seven consecutive games.
▪ The Cavaliers have made at least 11 3s every game this season.
▪ The Hornets scored a season-high 15 3-pointers versus the Raptors Friday.
