CHARLOTTE, N.C.: Michael Jordan has more rings. He has more Most Valuable Player trophies. But hes never been able to beat LeBron James. Sort of.James had 25 points, 13 rebounds and five assists Friday, Kevin Love added 18 points and 16 rebounds and the Cavaliers rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Charlotte Hornets 95-90.

He didnt like the intensity or physicality of Wednesdays loss at the Toronto...

Some aspects of the Hornets’ offensive approach this season are familiar. Al Jefferson can still be found down on the block, doing work – although he is noticeably lighter – and Kemba Walker is still the team’s motor, controlling the tempo and getting buckets. However, the 2015-16 campaign has also proven different, as the Hornets’ offense doesn’t have to live  The post Kemba Walker, Hornets benefiting from new additions and a revamped offense appeared first on Queen City Hoops.

Captains are adept at reading the shifting moods of the dressing room, of their teammates. Of course, you don't have to hold a degree in behavioral psychology after the Kings fell behind by three goals, took a rash of undisciplined penalties and ultimately lost, 4-3, to the Carolina Hurricanes...
The Washington Redskins look to break the streak of road losses. They haven't won a game away from FedEx Field since Week 8 of the 2014 season. But they face a tall task today as they enter this game as eight-point underdogs against the undefeated Carolina Panthers.
