Game Thread: Charlotte Hornets / Atlanta Hawks 10/30


Well, Game 1 wasn't what we all hoped for.

Questions of the day for game 2:
  • Are we going to shoot better than 4 for 572 from three point range?
  • Will PJ start again?
  • Will Lamb play?
  • Who guards Korver?
  • Will Frank the Tank make his first basket?
  • Which Al Jefferson jersey will Brother Dave wear while watching the game, The Purple one or the Teal one?
  • Will we get a win tonight?

    I like where your head is at.  

     My thoughts  about the game tonight

     1st  Al  v/s Horford      HorFord all ready making 4 threes in his first two games means Al is going to have to come out and try and guard the three.  Horford is all so a good low post defender .  We might be better off  Cody playing the five  and us running. At 30 I don't think  Horford  could keep up with Cody running the floor  for long periods.  But I don't like Al in this one.

     

          Milsap  at 6.8  would have a hard time  if the coach  used Cody guarding him  starting at the 4., Sefolosha  at the three  would have a hard time if we moved Williams starting at the three .   Batum  v/s Korver  would be a good match up  though I think Batum is a little better all around player.   Teague, Schroder v/s Kemba , Lin    will be hard to tell .

     

        The Al, Horford match up is the one that scars me

    I'd like to see a starting 5 of Kemba, Batum, Williams, Zeller, and Al. Then if Al has trouble you could end up bringing in Lamb (hopefully), PJ (show us something!), or Hawes. I doubt he's bring in Frank.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Sefolosha guards Lin at times. Will Hansbrough get any time on the floor? Matchup/personnel favors Atlanta BUT, they are coming off of a back to back and the Hornets have depth. Lamb coming back helps, hope he's fully healed.

    If Charlotte makes a bunch of threes = Win.

     

    If Charlotte misses a bunch of threes = Lose.

     

    *copies and pastes 80 more times*

    I have a feeling that, outside of the first few minutes of the game, we'll see Al more or less paired up with Tiago Splitter in substitution patterns. With Millsap being something of a stretch-four anyway and Horford spending more of his time than ever on the perimeter (he's taking four threes a game in this admittedly very, very young season) it'll be real difficult defensively asking Al to chase guys 25 feet from the basket.

    Kyle Korver (ankle rehab) and Mike Muscala (ankle sprain) OUT vs. Hornets. Thabo Sefolosha probable.

    They're starting Korver?  Big loss with Carroll.  If Korver isn't playing, they're even thinner at the wing spots, wow.

    Looks like Korver is out, which would be a big deal. Trap game.

    Who guards Korver?

    Will Frank the Tank make his first basket?

    Frank will make all the baskets

     

    Which Al Jefferson jersey will Brother Dave wear while watching the game, The Purple one or the Teal one?

    I'll go with the orange Primoz jersey

    Will we get a win tonight?

    Is Pero Antic bald?

    Until they win a road game, I can't predict a road win, but I do like their chances.  

     

    Win or loss, I want to see crisp, quick ball movement, less dribbling from Lin, and a more intense commitment on defense.  

    Key to this game will be the Big Al-Horford match up. If Horford has his way against Al I don't think we win this one. Wouldn't mind seeing Zeller at the 5 guarding Horford if Al struggles, especially if Horford is giving Al troubles at 3pt line. Korver being out definitely helps but Horford and Millsap could give us troubles tonight. I'm excited to see how we fair against another good Eastern conference foe. 

    Looks like line up is the same tonight per Bonnell on twitter

    Millsap will be a good test for Kaminsky. I hope Frank gets at least some time against him.

     Why are we starting PJ ?? We have 14 other players on the squad better than him and one of them can't even get his arm over his head . WHY?  Damn start Frank at the three . I would prefer him over PJ.

     

      Coach needs to get a brain and start Cody or Lamb in this one. PJ flat out don't need to be starting . I really don't think he's even ready to be in the rotation.

     

       Cliff did the same kind of shit last year playing Max over Biz last year . He can't seam to be able to stay off  a few players nut sack. I just don't understand that about him. He all so think's it's a sin to play a rookie .

    Batum is going to be a nice player for us. His only issues right now is over passing.
