Injury Report: It sounds unlikely that David West will play tonight. Byron Scott hasn't ruled him out completely, but suggested that Wednesday would be more likely for his return. Bonzi Wells will sit this one out, too. Yao Ming is of course done for the Rockets, not that they seem to be missing him much right now. Reserve big Carl Landry is also out for Houston. He's scored in double figures the past five games.

So, this is a big game for the Hornets. Well, metaphorically speaking. Literally, it's the same size as every other game, but you know what I mean. I like to think our guys will still be pissed about the loss on February 22nd and come out breathing fire. Chris Paul especially. We need him on that MVP-type level tonight.

Fell free to talk this one up in the comments.

[UPDATE] Hornets lose, 106-96.
