Four thoughts as the Charlotte Hornets enter the All-Star break

MKG's injury, and Al Jefferson's return are just a couple of things on the mind as the Hornets get a week off. The Charlotte Hornets enter the All-Star Break 27-26, and winners of four of their last five games. They have five more wins this season through 53 games than they did a season ago, and sit in 8th place after Detroit's loss to Denver. Even after a poor month of January, and a seven game losing streak, the Hornets look like a playoff team again, and have momentum entering the the break. With 29 games remaining, here are a few things on my mind as the Hornets get a week off: MKG's...

Hornets 106, Cavaliers 97: Notes and Observations

It may have taken six years, but Charlotte FINALLY got a victory over LeBron James. All it took was some want and a little flashback to Linsanity. Six long years. That's how long it has been since LeBron James last lost to a Charlotte-based basketball franchise. That the streak is finally over is a welcome sight for Charlotte fans everywhere.

It was quite clear tonight against the Utah Jazz that the Hornets hadn't fully recovered from the marathon two days beforehand, and their already short roster didn't help that. The Hornets have been playing without depth for weeks now, due to injury, and it's clearly beginning to take a toll. A fully healthy team would be able to spread the minutes around, and give some of the heavier minutes players...

Durant leads Thunder's dismantling of decimated Hornets, 109-95

Batum left with injury in the third quarter, and Westbrook had 15 assists! In a total second half pounding, the Oklahoma City Thunder were able to overcome the undermanned Charlotte Hornets, 109-95. The Hornets came into the night without star center Al Jefferson and valuable backup guard Jeremy Lamb. Nichols Batum was added to the injury list during tonight's game, leaving during the mid-third quarter with a sprained big toe. This left Charlotte without three of their top five scorers, and made it hard for the Hornets to find offense from their role players. Batum's absence also took away...
