Last season, the Hornets appeared in the play-in tournament but this year has been a disaster with a 10-27 record. Charlotte are 5-12 at home and, so far, the decision to let go coach James Borrego has backfired. Steve Clifford hasn't been able to produce the improvement promised by general manager Mitch Kupchak.

The Lakers were on a four-game losing streak, but now have won two of their last three matches. So far, it's been a very disappointing season for Los Angeles with a 15-21 record, one of the worst in the Western Conference. After Anthony Davis' foot injury, the Lakers haven't been able to recover even with brilliant individual performances by LeBron James.
