Charlotte Hornets vs Philadelphia 76ers GameThread

Sorry we're a bit late tonight! Hop to the comments. Go, go, go! Hey guys! There were a handful of changes to the Hornets' rotation tonight stemming from Cody Zeller and P.J. Hairston sitting this one out as they recover from injuries. Jeremy Lin will start at shooting guard alongside Kemba Walker, which also means that Nicolas Batum is sliding to what many consider his "natural" position (whatever that means), the small forward. By the way, sorry we're a bit late on the GameThread tonight. Good thing we got it in before tip-off. Anyway, with Lin graduating to the starting squad, Frank...

How Carmelo isn’t pulling another Jeremy Lin with Porzingis

The co-existence of Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis in the Garden spotlight has been a success thus far. Now it has to last. The Latvian rookie has become an instant fan favorite after hearing draft-night boos and is the biggest reason for optimism after last season’s dreadful 17-65 campaign. Anthony has found his footing after...

Knicks fans are in love with Kristaps Porzingis, and for once, it makes perfect sense

Tuesday night's game between the New York Knicks and Charlotte Hornets was rife with key characters from my basketball fandom, on both benches. If I'm being honest here, I had much more history tied up in a pair of Hornets. There was Patrick Ewing, of course -- the man who dominates my earliest basketball memories, the god of MSG during my childhood. And then there was Jeremy Lin, a player who just may have changed the course of my life. I was puttering around Beijing during the heady days of Linsanity, teaching English and hunting down NBA streams not blocked by the Chinese government,...

Death by Jeremy: Will the Knicks defend Jeremy Lin and Jeremy Lamb?

Please do defend, Knicks, as I would like you to win this time. The Knicks will once again take on the Charlotte Hornets Tuesday evening. They failed in their second matchups with the Cavaliers and Bucks, so it would certainly be nice to pick up a win against a team they've already faced. If they want to avenge their Nov. 11 defeat in Charlotte, the Knicks will have to do a better job of stopping reserve guards Jeremy Lin and Jeremy Lamb, who combined for 31 points. (Note to Knicks defenders: I just lumped those guys together for the sake of brevity ... you still have to defend both guys...

Jeremy Lin finds a home after Carmelo friction, Warriors flirt

Linsanity lasted just one season at the Garden — a few months, really, as magical as they were — before he left the Knicks in 2012. More than three years later, Jeremy Lin is finally playing closer to those standards with the Charlotte Hornets, who signed him as a free agent this summer to a bargain-basement two-year...

These ex-Knicks are headlining basketball’s senior experiment

It’s NBA meets AARP. Basketball will soon have its version of golf’s Champions Tour. According to an USA Today report, an independent league for older basketball players, preferably former NBA veterans, is being launched in the summer of 2016. The Champions League – run by chairman and CEO Carl George (the anti-George Karl) – will...

Derek Fisher’s next Knicks challenge: Solving endgame puzzle

This will make it a dirty dozen games for the Knicks and it is more than having trust in one another, something that wasn’t present last season. Sure, they are showing trust, but do they have the talent? With Tuesday night’s matchup against Charlotte at the Garden, Derek Fisher’s team will be 12 games into...

Last year’s saving grace is shocking Knicks in new way

Last season, Langston Galloway went from an undrafted rookie on the Westchester Knicks to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team, an outlier of optimism on the worst team in Knicks history. Now, Galloway can no longer be considered a pleasant surprise, with his production this season — the Knicks’ third-leading scorer, averaging 11.3 points — among...

Charlotte Hornets' official web site uses racially offensive term in story

A guest post written for Hornets.com contains a racially offensive term, and it's time to leave that word behind. Earlier this morning, writer Alex Wong discovered a post published on the Hornets' official web site with some unfortunate language in it. The story was published on Nov. 2 and focused on the buzz around the Hornets' opening night. But when the post got around to Jeremy Lin? shouts to the nba having an article on their site with the term "oriental fans" https://t.co/cMcF5MQrip pic.twitter.com/dKv9YJxxgW — alex (@steven_lebron) November 14, 2015 There is a blurb just...

Hornets 95, Knicks 93: "F*** that, Porzingis is still the God"

Ending sucked; Kristaps ruled. OK. I needed some time, to be honest. I hugged my kittens for a while. I meditated. I may have thrown up a little. And now we shall discuss... The Knicks lost to the Charlotte Hornets. Do I really have to tell you how they lost? Can't you just take my word for it? Fine! They blew a 10-point fourth-quarter lead, thanks to a Linsanity-esque Jeremy Lin performance. That sucked. With the game tied and the clock running down, they turned to their old war horse: the Carmelo Anthony iso, resulting in a long, off-balance jumper that ricocheted off the side of the...

Charlotte Hornets 104 Minnesota Timberwolves 95: Notes and Observations

Three of Charlotte's new additions led the way for the Hornets in Minnesota, but defense is becoming a concern. The Charlotte Hornets' 104-95 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves was a good end to a three game Western Conference road trip. Winning two of three is a great result, and should give the Hornets momentum heading into Wednesday night's home game against the New York Knicks. A few things stood out from tonight's game: Lamb, Lin, and Batum found a groove. The three new additions to the Hornets were a force on offense tonight, combining for 54 points with Jeremy Lin leading the way...
