I'm going to say the same thing that I said in my past few game threads, because it's still true: I legitimately have zero feel for the one. Even though I haven't seen that much of them this year, there are some really nice pieces in place for the Hornets, but the Sixers are rested and playing at home. The preview is here. Our friends at At The Hive are here.

Here's a video of Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless singing Austin Rivers' praises and disagreeing with Chad Ford's concerns (h/t to Soman). Actually, don't watch it. Here's the Cliff notes version: Skip said he would have been OK with the Bobcats picking Rivers at 2, Stephen A. said his teammates at Duke, the same ones who are dominating college basketball this season, were bad and held him back. I got a good chuckle out of the video, and those two probably got a little richer from me clicking on the video. A dark comedy, that First Take is.
