Rick Bonnell

Um, yeah. Yet the single biggest push-back I heard about my pre-camp predictions was the Heat still finishing ahead of the Hornets.

Rick Bonnell

Frankly, first thing Hornets should do in that regard is put Bobby Phills' jersey in the rafters, simply as a nod to Pelicans' accommodation

Rick Bonnell

If you want to chat Hornets, I'll be at the Observer booth at Buzzfest Friday at 7 p.m.. and Saturday at 3 p.m. Unless, you know, Powerball.

Rick Bonnell

This is no big surprise, but Hornets intend to wear their alternative teal uniforms opening night.

Hornets' Steve Clifford on Cody Zeller's fouls, wing rotation, if Noah Vonleh should play in D-League and much more: charlotteobserver.com/2014/10/21/525…

Rick Bonnell

At least two wing players will sit for the Hornets because, as Clifford put it, "intramural substitutions" don't work in the NBA.

Tim Bontemps

From yesterday, the consequences of Lance Stephenson's move to Charlotte for him, the Pacers and Hornets: nypost.com/2014/10/20/lan…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets injuries gave Cody Zeller and rookies P.J. Hairston and Noah Vonleh some extra run last night. charlotteobserver.com/2014/10/20/525…

Rick Bonnell

Gary Neal has clearly been Hornets' best player this preseason. ICYMI, you could see the signs at training camp: charlotteobserver.com/2014/10/02/521…

Five observations from Hawks' 117-114 overtime win over Hornets. atlantahawks.blog.ajc.com/2014/10/20/fiv… #ATLHawks

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Henderson (hamstring) tells me he did some running and shooting today. He hopes to play in Hornets' final exhibition.

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston missed a 3 at the buzzer. Hornets lose 117-114 in OT.

Chris Vivlamore

Final: Hawks 117, Hornets 114 OT. #ATLHawks

Jaryd Wilson

Game 1 with Charlotte last year: OT win (Pero's one-legged three) Game 2 with Charlotte last year: Bobcats win at buzzer. #AlwaysDrama

Rick Bonnell

Hornets hit the shot-clock hat trick.

Rick Bonnell

Gary Neal has obviously had the Hornets' best preseason. Second is MKG. Cody Zeller has been up-and-down but showing progress.

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks 82, Hornets 77 at end of third quarter. #ATLHawks

Jaryd Wilson

The Hornets have erased a 17 point third quarter deficit on the strength of their defense. New game at 77-77.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets delay-of-game warning.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Hawks 58, Hornets 43

Chris Vivlamore

At the half, Hawks 58, Hornets 43. #ATLHawks

Sean Highkin

One could even say he's having a "Kirk Hinrich against the Hornets" type game.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets second unit right now can be described as the very young meets the very old.

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks-Hornets tied at 24 after one quarter. #ATLHawks

Rick Bonnell

Hairston 3-pointer gives the Hornets a 19-17 lead with 3:28 left in first quarter.

Rick Bonnell

I asked Clifford why the Hawks are such a matchup nightmare for Hornets: He said transition and quick ball-movement.

Rick Bonnell

Glen Rice Hornets jersey in the stands at Philips Arena.

Rick Bonnell

A late scratch for Hornets: Lance Stephenson out with more groin soreness.

Jaryd Wilson

Neither Lance Stephenson nor Marvin Williams will play tonight for the Hornets.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have committed 140 fouls in first six exhibitions, compared to 129 by opponents.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said defense would be fixed with fewer needless fouls and getting back in transition.

Chris Vivlamore

Former Hawk Marvin Williams will not play tonight for Hornets. #ATLHawks

Rick Bonnell

Based on the shorts, it appears Hornets are wearing teal tonight. And there is no TV to my knowledge.

Chris Vivlamore

I stand corrected. No local TV or radio for tonight's Hawks-Hornets preseason game. #ATLHawks

Chris Littman

Lets not call these Jordan 11s "Hornets." They don't look like the unis, new or old. (They remind me of The Joker.) http://t.co/PBKx1Wahr8

Jaryd Wilson

As promised, here's @Kent Bazemore and @JesMTaylor chatting ahead of tonight's game with the Hornets: on.nba.com/1rYu6hy

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks will go with regular lineup for tonight's preseason game vs. Hornets: Teague, Korver, Carroll, Millsap and Horford. #ATLHawks

Otra buena victoria en casa esta vez contra los Hornets! Kirk ha jugado un partidazo metiendo tiros de todos lados! #SeeRed #FunToWatch

Another good win at home against the Hornets! Kirk played a great game making shots from everywhere on the floor! #FunToWatch #SeeRed

Sam Smith

Old Bulls (2010-12) are back with 101-96 win over Hornets. Rose scores all Bulls points in last two minutes, 17 in 28 mins. Hinrich w/26

Rick Bonnell

Final: Bulls 101, Hornets 96. Hornets play the Hawks in Atlanta tomorrow night.

Sam Smith

Rose and Noah getting 4th qtr action as Hornets close within two. What does that mean for Monday back to back against Cavs?

Chuck Swirsky

87-77 Hornets 839 left 4th Brooks -13 off the bench

Joe Cowley

Taj Gibson just dunked on the entire Hornets roster. I'm sure Stacey King made it sound like the greatest dunk of all time.
