Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Charlotte Hornets gamethread

Will the Cavs be able to bust the buzzing bees?

Did you know the Charlotte Hornets were originally going to be called the Charlotte Spirit, but a name-the-team contest yielded “Hornets” as the winning choice. The name originates from British General Cornwallis, who allegedly described the city as “a hornet’s nest of rebellion” following the Battle of Charlotte in 1780, though it was first attested in 1819.

Anyways, it’s basketball time at The Rock for your Cleveland Cavaliers.
