Should be a good one. Geographic, divisional opponent. I wouldn’t say they are our rivals yet. They will be in the future. Should be a good one, I got us by 12.
GO HAWKS!!! :thumbsup:

Hornets looking like a team in the second night of a back-to-back.

It's surely a point to keep in mind.
Still a great win, even if I didn't like the offense choices during the late run of CHA.

Now, after some games with a "easier" schedule, and more home games, I see two things :
- we depend a lot on the impact of Capela, and having Okongwu back would surely improve our 48min performance at C, which means we would have a better record even with this schedule
- Okongwu at this moment look more important than Hunter, not because Hunter is not good, but I think they didn't have enough games played with everyone to find the best rotations. Hunter out means more minutes and responsibilities for other, and it looks like Reddish is a bit better when having more responsibilities.

Once the roster will be fully available, this team will still have the potential of contender, but the biggest challenge for Nate will surely be how to optimize everybody's role to succeed
