Coming off the 1st full-blown Linsanity game as Hornets, how would Jeremy Lin follow in the next game? If Nic Batum still cannot play due to illness, will Lin/Kemba backcourt be expected to pick up the scoring load again? Batum is listed as probable. https://twitter.com/rick_bonnell/status/678251374728060928 Let’s go, JLin! Let’s continue to shoot at least 8FG  & 4 FT attempts. Relax, be... »

After 3-days break, the Hornets came out flat and was completely outmatched against a hot-shooting Magic (56% FGM & even higher 58% 3FGM). JLin valiantly tried to wake up his teammates who blew his assists with missed layups and putback. Jeremy played well in the 1st half with 7pts/2asts (3-5 shooting, 1-2 3pt shooting, one was a late one with 3 seconds left in the 2nd quarter) but had 1pts/2a... »

After a long 3-day break, the Hornets is facing Orlando Magic on a road game. After seeing Kemba and Batum ISO plays in the last 2 min of Celtics game failed to get a win, would we see more team-ball if the game is close today? It’s encouraging to see Coach Clifford asked JLin to orchestrate the offense more in the 2nd quarter even when Kemba was on the floor. It might take some time before ... »

G23 BOS @CHA Notes & Observations

Hornets lost a winnable game vs Celtics with 93-98 as the final score: Clifford once again stuck too long with starters in the 3rd quarter, letting Isaiah Thomas go off on Kemba repeatedly without making adjustment. From leading 4pts (42-38) at half-time, Hornets starters allowed Celtics to make 33-17 run to trail 12 pts (59-71) when Kemba checked out with 2:28 left. The bench force 1 + Batum help... »

What a wonderful game from JLin with the highest +/- at +25 to spark a 40-24 run to close the half. The win helped the Hornets to stay as #2 in the Eastern Conference. Otherwise they would’ve fallen to #7 This is a second game in the Back-to-Back games but thankfully, Celtics also had an exhausting 2OT game in a loss vs GSW last night. Would Jeremy Lin have enough left in the tank to play go... »

Was it the suspected back injury that that affected JLin’s shooting in the 2nd half lately? Or was it even the Samurai-Bun hairstyle? Let’s hope JLin stays healthy to be comfortable shooting 9-10 shots and play his defense in order to get 25+min of playing time Hornets is #2 in the East but a loss could send them back to #7 so this game is very important in the competitive Eastern Conf... »
