So the Heat, Nets, Hornets, Pistons and Pacers all are dealing with significant injury issues, while Celtics are trading everyone. The East!

Les Hornets ne sont plus une petite équipe et nous nous sommes appliqués pour les battre. Merci les insomniaques pour vos messages ! 🌙

Boris Diaw

The Hornets are not an easy team to play this year with a lot of young guys but we played seriously and didn't panic. Let's keep on winning!

Paul Garcia

The Spurs improve to 30-17 (tied with Mavs for 6th) after SA's 95-86 victory over the Hornets. Parker 17 pts, Green 16.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Spurs 95, Hornets 86

Mike Monroe

Another double-double for #Spurs Tim Duncan, now with 10 and 10 vs. #Hornets

Ben Golliver

Before Kyrie, last time a team *besides the Bobcats* gave up 55+ points to one player? Brandon Jennings' explosion vs. Warriors on 11/14/09

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Spurs 69, Hornets 64. Quite a quarter of defense for the Hornets to get back in the game.

Royce Young

As if things weren’t nuts enough, the Hornets have cut an 18 point deficit to two vs. the Spurs.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs have missed 9 of last 10 shots vs. #Hornets and lead that once was 18 is down to 6

Jeff McDonald

Mostly, Spurs can't buy a bucket in the 3Q. Hornets can't miss. It happens sometimes.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have trimmed what was an 18-point deficit to six.

Paul Garcia

Just after the Hornets cut the Spurs’ lead to 8, there’s Matt Bonner with the triple. SA leads by 11 again. Bonner 5 points.

Rick Bonnell

That Brian Roberts bucket was the Hornets' first made 3 of the night, four minutes into the second half.

Jeff McDonald

Meanwhile, Hornets have cut Spurs' 18-point lead to 8.

Paul Garcia

First half shot selection. Paint: Spurs 11/15, Hornets 14/17 Mid-Range: SA 4/5, CHA 3/16 Three: SA 5/13, CHA 0/3

Paul Garcia

Half: Spurs 55, Hornets 38. SA holds CHA to B2B quarters with 19 points. Parker 15 points, Kawhi 7, Duncan/Green/Diaw/Mills 6.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Spurs 55, Hornets 38. Hornets have taken three 3s, missed them all.

Paul Garcia

1:21 left before half and the Spurs are outscoring the Hornets 25-17 in the 2Q. Parker’s got 15 points and 2 assists.

Paul Garcia

Parker's now got 13 points in 11 minutes. Hornets have cut Spurs' lead down to 14.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets certainly have no answer for Tony Parker, no matter who has guarded him.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs doing a whole lot right on both ends, abetted by fact Hornets are short-handed. Lead 37-22.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs on a 3-point run to take 33-19 lead on #Hornets ... last four FGs have been from range, 2 each from @Patrick Mills and @Danny Green

Rick Bonnell

Two sloppy Hornets possessions set up back-to-back 3s from the Spurs, who lead 33-19 with 10:39 left in the half.

Jeff McDonald

Hornets open 2Q completely uninterested in transition D. Back-to-back 3s from Green and Mills and Spurs up lead to 33-19.

Paul Garcia

1Q: Spurs 27, Hornets 19. SA shoots 56%, CHA 43%. Parker 9 points in 8 minutes. SA 6 assists on 9 makes.

Rick Bonnell

Clifford said Hornets making a concerted effort to run more of their offense through Lance Stephenson in Kemba Walker's absence.

Jeff McDonald

Former Spur Gary Neal will serve as the backup point guard for the Hornets tonight. Something to watch for.

Rick Bonnell

AT&T Center is pretty empty 12 minutes before tip-off. Guess the Hornets on a Wednesday night isn't much of a draw.

Paul Garcia

"Less mistakes, it's the little things," said Hornets coach Steve Clifford of what's helped his team's defensive improvement.

Rick Bonnell

How long has it been since Bobcats/Hornets won in San Antonio? Last victory Adam Morrison went off for 27 points in November of 2006.
