Rosters

Charlotte Hornets  

PG:  Kemba Walker
SG:  Gerald Henderson
SF:  Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
PF:  Cody Zeller**
  C:  Al Jefferson

Reserves:  Roman Sessions, Ben Gordon, Jeffery Taylor, Josh McRoberts, Bismack Biyombo, Anthony Tolliver, Jannero Pargo, James Southerland, Jeff Adrien

IMO:  Expect Southerland to be inactive, toss-up between Adiren and Tolliver

Out:  Haywood 

Houston Rockets

 

PG:  Patrick Beverley 
SG:  James Harden

SF:  Chandler Parsons

PF:  Dwight Howard
C  :  Omer Asik

 

Reserves:  Jeremy Lin, Francisco Garcia, Omri Casspi, Donatas Motiejunas, Terrence Jones

 

I hope I didn't step on anyone's toes by starting the first game thread...but I had a few minutes to put it together so I thought I would. 

Here's to Jefferson playing without ankle concerns and hopefully a Horncats win!


**NOTE:  Most media outlets outside of Charlotte list Zeller as the starter not McRoberts, while the Observer is projecting McRoberts to the starter.  Regardless, look for Bismack and whoever doesn't start between McBob and Cody to get plenty of minutes against a physical tandem of Osik and Howard.  Also, Jefferson stated earlier in the week he think he will go though the team lists him as questionable.

Biz does well against Howard. Biz also had 11 blocks in 2 games against Houston last year.
