Happy Easter, everyone. Welcome to the Los Angeles Lakers vs New Orleans Hornets Game 4 live blog. The game will be starting in roughly 15 minutes.

Tonight the Lakers will hope to take a commanding 3-1 advantage in the best of seven first-round playoff series.

With their backs up against the wall, the Hornets should play very loose, desperate basketball tonight in front of their home crowd.

After a terrific performance from Chris Paul, the Hornets stunned the Lakers by winning Game 1 in Los Angeles.

After stellar defensive performances in Games 2 and 3, the Lakers have bounced back to take a 2-1 series lead.

Although both teams are among the best in the league defensively, as the first three games have indicated, I wouldn't be surprised if tonight's game wasn't a little more high scoring.

I see the Lakers winning a relatively close game.
