IC Cold Links: David West Set To Face Remains Of Hornets

When the New Orleans Hornets take the floor at the Fieldhouse tonight to face the Indiana Pacers, David West will face his former team for the first time. But the Hornets hardly resemble the team West left behind.

Only Marco Belinelli and Trevor Ariza remain among the starting lineup West played with before a knee injury ended his season early last year. Point guard Chris Paul is long gone and former front-court running mates Emeka Okafor and Carl Landry are currently sidelined with their own knee issues.

West knew the situation in New Orleans was unsettled at best with Chris Paul's situation so he decided to look for a more stable situation and found a perfect fit with the Pacers. He should be plenty amped up tonight to show his former team that he still has some game.

The Hornets have struggled mightily this season with Eric Gordon injured and Chris Kaman in and out of favor with the team, but they reeled off three consecutive wins last week before losing last night in Oklahoma City. The Hornets play the Pacers as the middle game of three games in three nights.
