    I know we should do so with care but looking out the next two weeks, there are a lot of winnable Hornets games and a lot of hard-to-win games for teams in the 4-7 spot in the East at present.  Lock in Hornets Nation (to borrow from SC30)

    Nice first quarter but an ugly last possession.  

    I like what I see out of Kemba and both of the Jeremys so far.

    Nice second quarter and a better last possession.  

     

    And then Paul George did that.

    Marvin Williams has gone full Reggie Miller tonight.

    So the 4th quarter seems like everything is bouncing the home teams way. You took MKG from us basketball gods you owe us.

    Good win, way to overcome that drought early in the 4th. Nice to have that tiebreaker
    Way to grind out the win!

    Remember when about 65% of this board felt Kemba shouldn't be our PG of the future.....

    Somebody has got to add the washing machine call to the Eric Collins thread lol

    Marv was spectacular. Kemba was Kemba clutch. Didn't like Batum much in this game, having problems with him being considered a max player. Al in any unit is a problem on defense and really slowed down the bench in the 2nd half when he missed bunnies. Defense was strange, at times really good and at times really clueless in this game. Big win. Good, gutsy win and loved Marvin tonight.

    Good Win. Even though the coaching staff nearly blew it by leaving the struggling second unit in too long when the team had the lead. Great all around game by Marvin. While Batum had six points & five turnovers. If max money is offered to him I don't think the Hornets should be the team to do it. Make a solid offer for a guy with his skill set & if he walks away so be it.

    Great to get a win, especially with Nic looking very much not himself, and no-one outside of Kemba and Marvin pushing the offense. I do like what Cody is starting to consistently do in the PnR offensively but we need to figure out how to close quarters consistently. Still happy as hell with the W. Now let's get one in ATL.

    Tonight was the first game of the season I was able to watch in Wilmington. Such a shame since I do live in the city where MJ grew up. Hopefully TWC will get it together next season. But, anyway... I was able to watch it on the NBA league pass free weekend tonight.

    What a game! They still did the same old, can't score for half a quarter, but I was happy how they kept fighting and closed it out strong. I loved seeing Kemba actually hitting jumpers consistently, which is a far cry from last season. I didn't think Batum looked great tonight. I still hope we resign him, but not for the max.

    I did watch a little of the Raptors / Cavs game.... And man, I miss Biz. He was in their at pivotal points in the game. We really could use him this season.

    should have won by double digits. the end of the third and beginning of 4th were prime for the taking, but charlotte went frigid and kept shooting bad shots.

     

    lin was horrid last night. kemba and marv won the game for charlotte.

     

    nevermind on wanting mahimi. he is a moron and would be so frustrating to watch night in and night out.
