    I can't help but think that Boogie is going to have a huge game against us tonight. I still think it's a winnable game but we can't let Casspi and Belinelli kill us from 3.

    That goes against the 9th Hornets Corollary: Instead of the opposing teams star playing well, the teams 3rd best player and 6th man will have a career game.

    Kings have been on a roll as of late. I count this as a win if we leave the town without any injuries. This will be our toughest game on this road trip. Will be disappointed not to come back with a 2-2 trip. Will be happy really happy with anything better.

    Are Zeller, Batum, and Lamb available to play tonight?

    Zeller is out for a week. Don't think he even made the trip. Batum might be game time decision. Not sure about Lamb

    Rick Bonne....ah just kidding. He's probably in Denver right now to analyze Gary Kubiak's journey to head coach.

    3 in a row is on lock down

     

    Timely

     

    I agree with Shoes, this is a tough out tonight. I hope we get a win but I have this one in the loss column.... I remain hopeful however and wouldn't be opposed to putting some small amount of coin on us (to win).

    In Kemba I trust

     We might be  in good shape if Hawes can hit a few threes .  Hitting the long ball is going to tell the story tonight

    Time for Brian Roberts and PJ Hairston to take the next step towards stardom.  Charlotte will be trading Kemba and MKG by the end of this road trip.

    Word is its a three team deal. Well get two second rounders in next years draft. They say it's going to be a deep draft!
    Clifford pregame talking about injuries: "Nic is closer, Jeremy is closer, Cody might be awhile, MKG is a lot closer also. We're hoping to get those guys back by the end of this trip."


    First confirmation I've heard Clifford or anyone mention getting MKG back this week.

    Did we leave our contacts/glasses on the plane?  check that... Troy must have uncorrected vision.

     

     

    .... several moments later, Roger from Accounting has found a monocle that fits Roberts and Jeremy's glasses under his dinner tray.

    Decisive Lin = Good Lin

    Maybe someone can dig one of those plastic magnifying glasses from the bottom of a Cracker Jack box for Marvin...

     

    ... or a rolled up program he can use??

    Gotta be hard up for hate to boo Spencer Hawes. There are better things to do at a NBA game. To each its own...

    Ok, survived to halftime, on-call optometrist hopefully has been pulled in to help with ability align the round orange thing with the net and ring thing.  Feel good things are going to happen :)

    2-22 from Frank, Kemba, and Marvin isn't gonna get it done. Lucky to be down 10.

    I want to say one word to you kid, just one word.  You listening?  Glasses 

    All kidding aside (who am I kidding, I'll probably make more jokes about corrective lenses that only I find funny), this is some great playmaking by Lin coming out of the locker room.  Really opening things up for everyone early on ... let's keep it rolling.

    Marvin and Agent 00 on fire.
    I repeat Lin is playing with a purpose tonight!
    I'm just laughing when Hawes scores. Come on guys, let's get this one!
