Charlotte Hornets at San Antonio Spurs game preview

After earning their first road win of the season in Dallas, can the Hornets carry that momentum as they face the title-contending Spurs? One big question surrounding the Spurs entering the season was how free agent signee LaMarcus Aldridge would fit into the San Antonio system. While Aldridge's addition filled people's minds, no one wondered if Kawhi Leonard would take his game to another level. The 2014 Finals MVP was already a great player, but he's making an early statement for a regular season MVP this year. Leonard currently ranks in the NBA's Top 20 in five separate categories...

Understanding the moves that led to Frank Kaminsky over Justise Winslow

Many fans lament the Hornets' selection of Frank Kaminsky over Justise Winslow, but the team set their course with their pre-draft moves. It seems as if every fall more than a few fanbases go through their coulda/woulda/shoulda phase with regards to their most recent draft. Unfortunately, the Hornets are one of them with their selection of Frank Kaminsky over Justise Winslow, and reportedly refusing Boston's offer of a handful of picks to move up. For Kaminsky, this fairly or unfairly raised expectations for his rookie season. The team and others clamoring about how NBA-ready he was at the...

Charlotte Hornets 108 Dallas Mavericks 94 : Notes and Observations

Al Jefferson was in All-NBA form, and Nic Batum was dialed in as a playmaker. The first aggressive double-team the Dallas Mavericks put on Al Jefferson came with about four and a half minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Given Jefferson's stat line (31 points on 15-of-18 shooting) it probably should have come sooner. Jefferson had arguably his best game since the 2013-14 season, and it came against a team that he only scored 14 points against in two games last season. It helps when Zaza Pachulia defended him for most of the night, but it showed that he is still capable of putting in...
