Game On: Hornets @ Lakers

Published: April 9, 2013

From here on out every game is a must win for the Lakers; depending on your opinion of  tanking, every game might be a must lose for the Hornets. Normally, the pro-tanking fan set that aside against the Lakers but the fans on that side of the debate (which I bet the majority of you are at this point) will probably set that aside tonight a root for a loss. Quite the conundrum.

If you hate tanking well then Monty Williams is right with you tonight and I promise he’ll do everything he can to tank (see what I did there?) the Lakers’ playoff chances. We’ve seen Monty introduce new pieces to his offense as the season has gone on; recently, Monty has been putting it all together and, at times, the team has looked great offensively. Even when the team blew a 25 point lead against the Lakers a month ago, Monty Williams introduced an a tricky set which started out with a Horns formation before quickly switching to an inverted offense.

Steve Nash is listed as a game time decision but is most likely out while, in a bit of a surprise, Metta World Peace has also been listed as a game time decision. UPDATE: Nash is OUT and World Peace is definitely playing.

No keys to the game tonight. But have some fun in the comments.
