The Charlotte Hornets are in a midst of a 3-game losing streak, as they look to get back on course tonight at "The Hive" as they battle the Phoenix Suns, who are on a 6-game losing streak.  Charlotte is coming off a rough outing at the hands of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers back on Monday night in Cleveland, while Phoenix on the other side of the story is coming off a crazy game of their own back on Monday as well, losing a heartbreaker to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Scouting the Suns

Things haven't gone the way it would all plan for the Phoenix Suns recently, as they are on a 6-game losing streak coming into tonight's game on the road in Charlotte.  Their most recent defeat came in a thrilling finish back on Monday on their home floor of Talking Stick Resort Arena, when Khris Middleton's buzzer beater gave the Milwaukee Bucks a 96-94 win over the Suns.  Phoenix is desperately looking to end their 6-game losing streak, while looking for some payback from their loss to the Hornets on November 14th at home, as they pay a visit to Charlotte to take on a Hornets team that's on a losing streak of their own coming into tonight.

Scouting the Hornets

Unlike Phoenix, the Charlotte Hornets are on a three-game losing streak, with their most recent loss coming on Monday in Cleveland to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Of course, most of the rumors surrounding the team is the possibility of trading Lance Stephenson, who has somewhat struggled to find his way in a Hornets uniform this season.  Charlotte looks to end its 3-game skid tonight, in this inter-conference match-up against the Phoenix Suns at Time Warner Cable Arena.
