Ryan BowenStart of a tough stretch for the Hornets tonight. Orlando come in with a 39-13 record overall, 18-7 on the road.

The Magic have slipped a little recently, splitting their last six games, and needing overtime to beat the Bobcats in Charlotte yesterday. Dwight Howard dominated that game with 45 points, 19 rebounds and 8 blocks.

No word yet if new Hornets Wilcox and Smith will be available to play.

You can catch ESPN’s NBA Shootaround (6:30pm) and their entire Hornets-Magic game broadcast live online this evening. Just use those links to get there. The game tips a little after 7pm.

Random fact: Orlando’s Hedo Turkoglu has played seven pairs of games on consecutive days this season. He’s averaging 22.4ppg in the second of those games, compared to a 16.1 average in all other games.
