Hornets Snag a Victory in Orlando; Kemba Walker with 30

We really needed a win.   I mean, we really, REALLY needed a win.   5 losses were starting to feel like an eternity since our last win. Now granted, beating a team that was 13-23 on the season is not the greatest benchmark for how well we played, but it was a victory, and we se saw some things that were positive. Let me share them with you.   Kemba was on his game last night....

Hornets Win 2 in a Row; Is this the Turning Point?

Hornets fans, our beloved team has now won 2 games in a row.  I didn’t write an article after the victory in Philly because honestly, it was a game that we should have won.  I mean honestly, a team with 24 turnovers in a game should not win.  I feel bad for the Sixers though.  They really are trying.  They did have 12 blocks on the night.  That’s pretty impressive.  I...

The Teal and Purple Lose 7th straight

We can’t just look at stats on this loss. Well, you can, but it doesn’t make the loss appear to be a cut and dry one. The Hornets had a better overall field goal percentage than the Trailblazers (43.6% vs. 42.4%). They also out-assisted the Blazers 29-21. Those are key numbers that can decide victories and losses. On this night, those weren’t the specifics to our loss....

23-Point Lead Wasn’t Enough; Hornets Fall to the Magic

105-100 Let that sink in Hornets fans.  Had I written this last night, it would be filled with a ton of expletives, followed by screaming to have every player and coach’s head on a spike.  I’ve calmed down now.  Sitting on Twitter while watching the game may be bad for my health.  I know it makes me be an unhappy fan, and the biggest result is that I start feeding off of...

Hornets Fall to 4-8 with Loss to the Pacers

A game that ended with a final score of 88-86 makes it sound like the game was quite the barn-burner.  Well, I guess in theory it was a barn-burner in the sense that many Hornets fans are ready to burn their barns over the inconsistency and losses.  I am on Twitter for most every broadcast of the games, and I read what fans say.  I try my best to not go defending like a crazy...

Hornets Fall Short in New York

So, do we blame the second loss in a row on being tired, lack of chemistry, poor shooting, a 5-second call that wasn’t 5 seconds… I can say we lost 93-96 to the Knicks.  Why?  Well, that was the score.  What did we do wrong?  Does it paint a fair picture of how the team played?  Not really.  Looking quarter by quarter, the teams each played a decent game.  Both teams shot...

Rough Road Trip Ends with LeBron Scoring 61
