Pre-game notes:

- The Hornets are back in Boston for the first time since December 31, 2010. We happened to eke out a win too, 83-81.

- Will be interesting to see if the Hornets play Eric Gordon in his first back-to-back; I'm not hopeful after he played 32 minutes last night. Consequently, we could be in store for plenty of Rivers v. Rivers.

- Did Monty Williams purposefully save Anthony Davis yesterday, only to unleash him tonight? If not, then we'll know the Hornets are probably monitoring his minutes in an attempt to help him break through his rookie wall.

- Oh yeah, current FroLo = current KG. Have fun with that!
