we won, yey!
I really didn't think the crowd was that much smaller than the Phoenix game, but that said, those who showed up were rowdy (myself included obviously) and were into the game well after the game was decided.
This game was the blueprint for how we should play every night: Mek with double double; GW with 20 pts (19's close enough) plus his usual assortment of hustle stats; JRich with high teens in points with his usual high number of rebounds for a guard; Raymond running the team, and not being forced into being a scorer; really good bench production also; very good D.
This is really the 3rd straight game where this blueprint, by and large, has been executed, and I'm starting to really get a feeling that Sam and the guys are in total synch. Sam's evolution over the course of the early season has been fun to watch, though I am a little disappointed that Jermareo didn't get any more PT considering how well he was playing.
Even though we should be 5-2, 4-3 is pretty sweet, all things considered
PS. Did anybody else get stuck in that glorified parking lot known as 85 South at the Graham St. exit? Can't believe we only missed the first 3 minutes of the game.
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
we won, yey!
A solid win for us last night, I caught the second half on tv, so I hoped it looked just as good in the first.
Beagle, I believe they said it was some sort of a chemical spill from a tanker truck? That's what the chopper was showing.
I think it was great we got the win and did not have to play our starters most of the 4th. We will need the energy tonight vs. Atlanta.
This is huge tonight. We are within 1 and 1/2 of Orlando for 1st in the Division, and have a 1 and 1/2 lead over Atlanta for 2nd. We are tied for 4th in the East. This will be another statement game! We need to stay on Orlando's butt and widen the distance between ourselves and Atlanta, Miami and Washington.
Even without major help up front for Okafor, with Miami, Washington and hopefully Atlanta being weaker than everyone thought, we have a good chance at the playoffs. No other Division may have such weak Division foes. Atlanta can present match up problems for us, in my opinion. Especially on the front line. We will really need J-Rich and Wallace to be on fire tonight to ease the pressure on Okafor. If they are hot, that will open up Okafor some. We need moderate scoring from Ray, with high assist numbers and low TO's.
