Hornets Beat Undermanned Bulls, 108-91

What happens when the Bulls have to start Taj Gibson, Pau Gasol, Mike Dunleavy, Kirk Hinrich, and E’Twaun Moore?  Well, typically they suffer the same pains that the Hornets have endured over the past few months.  They lose games.  Last night was no different.  Pau Gasol attempted to carry the team, scoring 22 points.  Doug […]

Cousins Setting Records – Hornets Don’t Care; Defeat Kings in Double OT

So, I had no intentions of staying up until 2AM last night.  I didn’t plan on watching a double overtime NBA game.  Last night, however, the Hornets SHOULD HAVE won many fans over to root for them.  In an amazing turn of events, the short-handed Hornets (10 players available to play) went from being down […]

Bug-on Bug Crime; Hornets Bit by the Injury Bug

I don’t know why, but it always seems like when the all-star break approaches, the Hornets are desperate to get there.  It isn’t a desire to get there to participate in the all-star activities as much as it is for us to recover from nagging injuries.  Every single year, it seems like we have key […]

Kobe’s Farewell Tour Reaches Charlotte, Lakers Fall, 108-98

Maybe it’s just me but I can’t stand it when fans from other teams come into our house and cheer more for the other team than the home team.  Last night, of course was no exception.  The Lakers reached Charlotte, NC for the Kobe Bryant farewell tour.  The result was a 108-98 victory for the […]

Hornets Fans, Let’s Take a Deep Breath and Reflect

Merry Christmas Hornets fans! How about a poem? T’was the night before Christmas, and all through the house, everyone was on electronics, even a mouse.   Both boys glued to TVs, Xboxes aglow; wife at the laptop, my PC running slow… I’m cruising through Twitter, thanking my fans, reading the Tweets and wringing my hands… […]

Big Night for GodZeller; Hornets Beat Pistons 104 – 84

Ever since it was announced that Al Jefferson was going to miss 2-3 weeks, the alarms were sounded and the big question was who would fill the void left by Jefferson’s absence.  Initially, the answer was simply “Center by Committee”.  As the games have passed by, a different answer has rung clear.  Cody Zeller could […]

Warriors Reach Historic 20-0 on Dell Curry Night at the Hive

I wanted to believe that the Hornets would snap the Golden State Warriors’ 19-0 start to the season, but unfortunately, from the start, the deck was stacked against us.  With the announcement that Al Jefferson would be missing 2-3 weeks due to a calf strain, it would mean that yet another Hornets staple would not […]

Hornets Hold the Wizards to 6 Points in the 4th, Win 101-87

I know what I said in the last game recap. Being basically a 1-man-show, I sometimes combine 2 games into one recap. After sitting through the game tonight, I just had to park myself in front of the computer and talk a little about this game.   Again, turnovers (19) and a rough 3rd quarter […]

Home Stand Streak Extends to 3; Sixers and Kings both Fall at the Hive

The last 2 home games that the Hornets have played couldn’t have been more different, but both resulted in victories.  My sincerest apologies for not writing a recap after every game, but the fact of the matter is that when something like this is your hobby, it isn’t always easy to find the time to […]

What a Difference a Day Makes; Hornets Split New York/Brooklyn Back-to-Back

After Tuesday’s game in Madison Square Garden, there was a lot of scrutiny over Kemba Walker.  I was part of that scrutiny.  I’ll admit it up front that I can’t stand it when Kemba plays “hero ball”.  When his shot is falling, he gets tunnel vision and sometimes fails to get his teammates involved.  No […]

Hornets, Powered by Nic and Al, Top Trailblazers

Tonight was one of those nights that reminded us of how much fun it is to watch the Charlotte Hornets this season. In the arena, we honored Gerald Henderson, said hi to Noah Vonleh, remembered the tragedy in France and still manhandled our opponents to come away with a victory. Leading the way was our […]

Hornets Grab 2nd Road Win of the Year Versus Timberwolves

Of course the story lines will state that the Hornets beat the Timberwolves, who were without Ricky Rubio and Andrew Wiggins.  You know how it goes; Hornets beat a team that was shorthanded.  Blah, Blah Blah… Last I checked those wins still count, regardless of who did or did or didn’t play.  Here’s the thing […]

Hornets Start their Road Trip with a Win Over the Mavericks

People say that the NBA is changing. It has become a faster paced game where the 3-point shot is key. They say that the old days of banging in the paint for 2 points is just a thing of the past. Does anyone want to tell Big Al Jefferson that? Last night, he erupted with […]

Careless Hornets Turn the Game over to the Hawks

Wondering about the article’s picture?  I like to use that one when a game is lost because of turnovers.  Sick humor?  Maybe.  Did this make you laugh?  I hope so. A team cannot commit more turnovers than the other team and expect to win a game. This is especially true when 25+ points come off […]
