I thought Darling was supposed to be a sharpshooter? We could use one right now.

McD shows some really good patience on offense at times, especially in the paint - using head fakes etc to get his defender up in the air and out of position to enable him to score.

Hornets need to tough this one out. So far, they have been taking care of the ball, which is really important when you are lacking in firepower.

Poku doing his best PJ impersonation and not being able to back down the much smaller player (Tae).

The Thunder seem to be confusing goaltending with defense.

That's a ballsy, ballsy shot by TRo.

Not sure I liked it (1 on 4) but it went down so I'll just shut the **** up.

Our defense is still garbage, but glad to see McD have himself a nice game like this.

I know it’s just one game, but this just proves what I have been saying. If Washington isn’t going to be productive and consistent, trade him while he has value, and replace him with McDaniels.

He is +16 with four assists and no turnovers, so he must be doing something right, running the offense.

Oh yeah, if there were ever a game where he can get as many open threes as he wants without any physicality at all, this is it.

I literally never heard of Pokusevski before tonight, and he has 25 through three quarters. Maybe the coaches hadn't, either, but they can adjust.

he’s been ok this year but was shooting 26% from 3 coming into the game. but to be fair he’s probably had 5 of his most open 3s of all season in the last 20 mins
