The Hornets handled last week's road trip—well, about how you'd expect the worst team in West to handle it—dropping three straight games before beating the Rubio-less Wolves on Saturday. The Chris Kaman trade-him-or-save-him talk rages on and Eric Gordon's knee is still busted up. It's pretty much business as usual for the NBA's orphan child. That said, Monday's game against Charlotte will mark the first time in the NBA's history that two Mexican players have faced off against one another (Charlotte's Eduardo Najera and NOLA's Gustavo Ayon), so there's that. —Sean Evans
