Matchup to Watch
Jimmy Butler vs. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Butler has evolved from an elite defender to an elite overall player. Kidd-Gilchrist is the player the Hornets count on to contain wing scorers.
▪ Hornets Kemba Walker and Nic Batum each reached 20 points and 10 assists in Wednesday’s home victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.
▪ After a brutal stretch of 18 games in 32 days, the Hornets have two games – both at home – in eight days.
▪ The Hornets’ Batum and the Bulls’ Rajon Rondo are two of the best rebounding guards in the league.
▪ Bulls guard Michael Carter-Williams is out with a wrist sprain
