Matchup to Watch
Andre Drummond vs. Cody Zeller/Spencer Hawes: Drummond is having a fantastic season so far. This is a game when the Hornets could really miss the injured Al Jefferson.
▪ Close friends Steve Clifford and Stan Van Gundy do not enjoy having to coach against each other several times a season. Clifford was an assistant on Van Gundy’s staff in Orlando.
▪ Drummond’s 256 rebounds in November was a remarkable feat.
▪ Hornets guard Nic Batum has made a 3-pointer in his last 14 games.
▪ This is the second game on back-to-back nights for the Pistons, who had a home game Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers.
