Comments from the Hornets' fan site:

The moderator, before the start of the game ... “The Suns have basically no centers except for Bismack Biyombo. That should be fun.”

In the fourth quarter, a fan comment .... "C'mon we're only down 41 points to a shorthanded team playing (us) at home at nearly full strength on 3 days rest…"

The big story is obviously Jalen. I don't know what we do with him now. He's definitely a smallball 5 so it might still be hard for him to get minutes when we're fully healthy.
Well, Ayton always says how much he wants to play PF... :P

But watching him, he's exactly the type of young big you see on another team and wish you had on your team. It's disappointing we had so many missteps with him so far- from trying to make him a PF to not getting him any real PT to not picking up his 3rd year.
That was the dumbest mistake Jones has made as GM. Such low risk, high reward for picking it up, too.

Season is not quite half over.
If anything, Jalen's ascendancy and the acquisition of Biyombo gives the front office more personnel options.

Obviously the plays against Bridges and Plumlee getting lots of chatter but I really enjoyed this one

"Chase down" and then the audio :twisted: 8-)

GIMMIE THAT SHIT! (for the hard of hearing folks)

I'm glad they talked about him playing with emotion in the post game because he's always looked so melancholy on the court to this point and I think it was preventing him from playing well.

I'm betting this photographer seized this opportunity as a potential Bridges poster
Can't blame him because most people would. As a result Jalen gets a real cool image caught here 8-)

Bridges just lost the ball according to the Hornets' announcers.
