Big performances from Walker and Howard sealed the victory over the Magic

34 points from Kemba Walker and 22 from Dwight Howard helped the Hornets move to 3-1 at home. Throughout the summer and in the first few games of the season, it seemed like scoring would often be difficult for the Charlotte Hornets, even painful at times. Tonight was certainly not one of those times. The Hornets took down the pleasantly surprising Orlando Magic 120-113 on Sunday night, and although they won by only seven points, the lead was much higher for extended stretches of the game, peaking at 16 during the third quarter. Offense looked downright easy for this team all night, with...

Hornets, down 20, beat Hawks by 18 in home opener

The Hornets made the mightiest of comebacks behind huge games from Dwight Howard and Kemba Walker. I thought the Hornets would lose tonight. Boy, was I wrong. The Hornets managed to turn a 20-point first half deficit into an 18-point win against the Hawks Friday night, and was it something to behold. Kemba Walker led the team with 26 points and nine assists, while Dwight Howard chipped in 20 points and 15 rebounds against his former squad. I mean, I’m shocked.

Nets open the home schedule vs. the Magic

It’s always good to be home. For the Brooklyn Nets, they come back home looking to put on a show in front of the Barclays Center crowd for the first time. They lost on Opening Night in Indiana, but that wasn’t the biggest loss they suffered that evening. More on that in a minute. The opponent tonight will be the Orlando Magic. Orlando is hoping that a weakened Eastern Conference will be their way of getting back into the playoffs for the first time since the lockout shortened 2012 season (Dwight Howard’s last year with them). They got off to a nice start with a seven point win against...
