Gameday Thread: Portland Trail Blazers at Charlotte Hornets

Early game! The Blazers and Hornets tip off today at 4:00 pm PDT. Hang out here and chat with us!

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Charlotte Hornets Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The increasingly-desperate Portland Trail Blazers make a trip to Charlotte, NC to play the reeling Hornets today. The early 4:00 pm tip-off time on the West Coast will probably limit the number of viewers, but the Blazers have a chance to make up some ground in the West. The Denver Nuggets overtook them for the 8th playoff seed last night, but the Clippers also lost Chris Paul for 6-8 weeks with a ligament injury. If the Blazers have any plans to make a run, this is a good time.

Both the Blazers and Hornets are dealing with injuries, for players including Moe Harkless, Ed Davis and former Blazers star Nicolas Batum. We’ll provide more info closer to game time.

Charlotte isn’t the hotbed of music that you might see in Detroit. They have a few old-school R&B bands, such as— OMG WAIT, FIREHOUSE IS FROM CHARLOTTE.

Ahhh, much better.
