Hornets Sign DJ Mbenga »
Game On: Heat @ Hornets
With Lebron taking an unnecessary night off, Dwayne Wade hurt, and David West sitting this one out as well, this game lacks the excitement that was anticipated when fans first saw it on the schedule. Expect nothing more than a few minutes from Bosh. The Hornets will be looking to find some player combinations that will work off the bench, and regain some confidence following their discouraging loss to Orlando.
Hornets- David West (wrist)
Heat- LeBron James (muscle cramp), Dwyane Wade (hamstring), Carlos Arroyo (groin), Jamaal Magloire (knee) and Eddie House (shoulder).
Hornets: PG Chris Paul, SG Marco Belinelli, SF Trevor Ariza, PF Jason Smith , C Emeka Okafor
Heat: PG Mario Chalmers, SG James Jones, SF Mike Miller , PF Chris Bosh, C Joel Anthony.
Pregame notes from the Arena

- A portion of single game ticket sales are being donated to “Believe in Blue”
- I will be on the Daily Dime Chat tonight, so if you missed Ryan and I earlier (or even if you didn’t) stop by and say hello.
Lacks excitement!? We have a good chance of beating the Miami heat tonight! How is this not exciting?
It's preseason and LeBron, Wade, and D West are all out so a lot of the 'excitement' factor is gone. Still, I'm curious to see how the team plays and how our 4s handle Bosh. Hopefully Marcus doesn't shoot under 20% tonight.
They can say they are playing it safe all they want. It's fear, and reasonable fear, mind you, that their season depends totally on these three guys, all three, making it through the season playing 75 games each at a minimum and playing every playoff game. Welcome to real life, Miami. You may win 82+16 games for 6 straight years, but you'll live in constant fear, not of taking a step back, but from looking as foolish as we did without Chris and Peja. The reason: you don't have a team. You have a stars and an entourage. I'm interested to see how it stacks up to a team.
