GAME THREAD: Dallas Mavericks at New Orleans Hornets

To shave or not to shave... THAT is the question.

Hey man, you got an itchy face? Yeah, me too.

Whether 'tis nobler in the... oh nevermind.

WHO: The New Orleans Hornets host the Dallas Mavericks

WHAT: ANOTHER beard game? COME ON.

WHERE: New Orleans Arena, New Orleans, LA

WHEN: 5:00pm CT


THE STORY: The Hornets are one of those groups of guys who can really do you in if you're not ready for them. And if the Mavericks weren't ready for the Suns... whoo boy. They're coming off of a pride-victory against the Nuggets, and a win tonight would mean a shave for the hairy Mavericks. Again. It's getting tiresome, I tell you what. A few milestones to watch for... Dirk Nowitzki needs just 10 points tonight to become just the 17th player to reach 25,000 career points.Vince Carter is 25 away from passing Clyde Drexler for 27th all-time. Unless it's a freakishly high-scoring affair, I doubt we'll see VC's tonight. Anyway visit Rohan and his crew over At The Hive.
