OKC have burnt through their timeouts in the 3rd qtr. They only have 2 left.

Man I can’t wait for us to get LaMelo back. Maybe this time off having to watch from the bench will give him new perspective and come back even better.

Nifty steal by Devonté, followed by a tough basket by Zeller.

In the interest of total transparency:

I spent a good part of the the day watching LaMelo highlights from his time in Charlotte so far on YouTube this afternoon.

It was awesome, but doesn't make not seeing him out there any easier!!

I’ve done the same thing. I can’t believe how fast he’s won us over from what I thought he’d be back in October to now. Now we watch YouTube LaMelo highlights for some dopomine

Say what you will, the Hornets took care of business tonight. They had 27 assists on 43 baskets, or 63%.

He was unbelievably bad early in the season, but hes been having some nice games recently.

Was Biyombo injured, or did the coach decide to "go in a different direction" as they say in the corporate world?

Awesome win, we really needed that one to stay afloat in the playoff race. Yet another brutal road trip the Hornets will finish with a .500 or better record, that's a real accomplishment.

McDDDDDDDD let's go man!

Needed this win...thought they played pretty good team ball tonight.

Zeller coming off the bench has been a force.

3-2 (about to be 3-3) on this road trip is very very solid and a result I think most of us would've been happy with BEFORE the Monk and Hayward injuries. We've done an admirable job with this very tough stretch of road trips. I haven't looked too closely at the remaining schedule, but you've gotta think it's filled with some homestands and winnable games. Huge.

It would be really cool if we could get the chance to have our entire roster healthy again...

Melo/Tae
T-Ro/Monk
Hayward/McD
PJ/Miles
Zeller/PJ

THAT'S the rotation man. Pretty damn sick. Here's to the squad continuing to battle for that 4-6 spot!!!

LFGGGGGG
