Hornets sting the Hawks 105-90

Another strong defensive effort gives the Hornets their second straight win. In one of the best performances of the season, the Charlotte Hornets routed the Atlanta Hawks, 105-90. Kemba Walker and Nicolas Batum led the team with 16 points a piece. The first quart was ugly, as the Hornets couldn’t find their rhythm. Clifford called a time-out only a minute and a half into the game, and it was not looking good early on. However, Marvin Williams ended up closing the first quarter with a magnificent lay-up with 0.4 seconds left, tying the game at 19. At the start second, Briante Weber opened...

Nicolas Batum (migraine) will play in Hornets' Saturday game

Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Nicolas Batum (migraine) will play Saturday against the Washington Wizards, head coach Steve Clifford said. What It Means: Batum had missed two games dealing with painful migraines. However, he had a CT scan of his brain on Wednesday which came back negative and apparently Batum will be able to suit up Saturday night. This is unexpectedly good news for Batum owners, as it was unknown when Batum would be cleared to return. At this point, there has not been an indication of whether or not Batum will have any minutes restriction on Saturday. Jeremy Lamb...

Nicolas Batum (migraine) misses practice for Charlotte

Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Nicolas Batum (migraine) missed Tuesday's practice, and he's not scheduled to travel with the team for Wednesday's meeting with the Indiana Pacers. What It Means: Batum still has a chance to fly to Indiana for the game if things improve, per head coach Steve Clifford, but for the time being it looks like he won't play, meaning Jeremy Lamb would draw another start on the wing. Batum is averaging a career-high 15.4 points to go with 6.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game this season. He ranks only 326th out of 475 players with a -1.2 nERD on the...
