BUZZ CITY

The first time the Cavs and Charlotte Hornets met this season was game one in Cleveland. The second game between the two is in Charlotte with about a month left in the regular season. The Hornets will be without rookie-of-the-year frontrunner, LaMelo Ball.

LAST TIME OUT

Shorthanded and on the second night of a back-to-back, the Cavs hung tough with the Pelicans, but New Orleans proved to be too much over the game's final handful of minutes. Without the usual starting backcourt, Dean Wade and Isaac Okoro picked up the offensive slack, both scoring a new career-high (21 and 19) while Kevin Love scored a season-high (18). Matthew Dellavedova, who got the start, handed out 10 assists.
