Harrell almost had a 20/20 game in 28 minutes. Ridiculous.

Thank God we pulled this one out. Miles was uncharacteristically really bad. Borrego coming out of that timeout with the zone had the Wizards all kinds of confused. Still disagree going small with Miles at the 5 when they annihilated us on the boards though.

Thank God Melo held onto the ball this time and took the foul Vs trying to pass it!!

He listened to Dad's teaching moment after the Pacers game.

Kai Jones definitely wins the 'Happiest to Be Here' award for this season. He looks absolutely delighted every time I see him in a bench reaction shot.

If we didn't go after Holmes that's pretty much inexcusable, even if he did want to stay in Sac.

You could put one of us on Slam's shoulders and we'd collectively be the teams best rebounder.

Is Cody the reason our bigs get benched in the 4th? Forcing turnovers/hustling for loose balls > rebounding? Or are they just that bad.

Terry was something else tonight. Glad the guys were able to hang on.

With 6mins to go and the Hornets up 97 - 88, JB went small and I got scared.

At that point, Harrell had 20 points and 14 rebounds.

End of the game, Hornets win 109-103 and Harrell ended the game with 24 points and 18 rebounds - so only added 4 and 4 against the small ball line up and we won.

That actually ended much, much, MUCH better than I thought it might.

Harrell and Gafford to combine for 40 points and 40 rebounds :lol:

They "only" got 32 points and 28 rebounds

Man did our backcourt carry it tonight. I expressed concerns over Melo, just as any papa would with his star son. Don’t let that make anyone think I’m not a believer.

He is The ONE.
I continue to wait...and hope...for the return to Hornet's glory.

Unpossible. The FO decided they were good and didn't need to sign any bigs, right?

I look at his brother and how he matured into a very good defender as he grew into his body and can't help but have hope that Melo will get close to that eventually.
