HORNETS WIN!!! 3 in a row!!
Final: Hornets 110, Nuggets 82.
Jeff Taylor and Jason Maxiell come in with Hornets up 27 and 5 1/2 minutes left. Victory cigar.
It will be very interesting how Steve Clifford uses Lance Stephenson once he returns from this pelvic sprain, considering these past 3 games
End of third: Hornets 84, Nuggets 57.
Cody Zeller's fourth foul, this one nowhere near the ball.
They need to find Al some touches.
Halftime: Hornets 58, Nuggets 40. Boy, does Denver look disinterested.
Are Denver's centers prepared to pay for the tutoring session Al Jefferson is providing them tonight?
Hornets lead is 21. If they win tonight it's three in a row, longest streak of the season.
Kemba Walker has generated 12 points off four shots from the field.
Big Al making Jusuf Nurkic look very rookie-ish.
Nate Robinson headed back to the Nuggets' training room.
Hornets lead by 14, shooting 16-of-27.
Al Jefferson back in to start the second quarter. Don't know how much or little the groin strain is bothering him.
End of first: Hornets 28, Nuggets 18. Hornets made 13 of 22 first-quarter shots.
Some early minutes for rookie P.J. Hairston.
Mozgov is covered in blood. Headed back to the training room.
Nice move by Cody Zeller to draw a block from Kenneth Faried.
Biz checks in for Big Al early.
Hornets open 11-2 lead. Big Al 3-of-3. Brian Shaw might re-think that not doubling Jefferson.
Arron Afflalo has struggled to guard Gerald Henderson in the mid-post. But Hendo gave up open look to Afflalo that lost game in April.
Had Al Jefferson not signed with the Hornets, they would have pursued Timofey Mozgov.
A friend who was at Nets-Pistons game notes that Josh Smith's last act with Detroit was missing two free throws.
Nuggets coach Brian Shaw hates to double-team. He hopes Timofey Mozgov can guard Big Al one-on-one. But he has alternatives in mind.
Ty Lawson says he's playing tonight.
Ty Lawson is questionable to play tonight with a sore back.
Lance Stephenson and Noah Vonleh are Hornets' inactives tonight.

It's happening already...
Day party with one my boos earlier this evening ☺️
Doug Marrone has that "Anybody need an offensive coordinator?" look right about now.
Classy gesture by Cam Newton telling fans not to cheer injuries. Wish more athletes would speak up about such things.
You just don't mess with a Sunshine catch.
Sunday full of watching football!
Loving my new speakers!!! Makes listening to Pandora 10x better

Essence Claus listening to what Laken wants for Christmas
Final: Hornets 104, Jazz 86.
Al Jefferson mild groin strain.
Would've been fun to see what Hayward at shooting guard and MKG at small forward could have done together.
MKG double-double of 12 points/10 rebounds.
Man, did MKG shut down Hayward that last possession.
Al Jefferson left the game grimacing. Now he's headed back to trainer's room.
