Pre-game notes:

- Did you know Sunday's win in Phoenix was the first road win the Hornets have registered since the All-star break?

- If you want to know how we should perceive the recent Monty-Gordon flare-up, Gerry V has the correct take.

- In 3 of the last 4 Laker games, Kobe Bryant has practically played the full 48 minutes. No doubt the all-in approach is necessary to merely just make the playoffs, but one has to wonder how much longer Bryant's legs can handle the workload.

- Steve Nash is out tonight but Metta World Peace might be active for tonight's matchup. Crazy. For a knee procedure that normally requires around 42 days of recovery time, he's attempting to cut that number to 12. Kobe is right, Metta World Beast.
