Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
P.J. Hairston has a thumb sprain. Left the arena in a brace.
No Lance Stephenson again in fourth quarter. I would say if Portland leaves in Blake at 2-guard, Roberts stays in the game.
Brian Roberts' 21 points is a career-high.
What exactly did Hairston do that was cause for a technical?
Of course P.J. called "bank."
End of third: Blazers 79, Hornets 76
Panthers lineman Greg Hardy sitting front row mid-court at Hornets game.
All of an 11-point lead is gone. Blazers lead 71-69. Maxiell coming in after timeout.
So it was both a knee to the thigh and an elbow to the head for Kemba Walker.
Kemba looks plenty woozy.
I'm told Kemba took an elbow to the face. Haven't seen the replay.
Kemba Walker down.
Curious who Clifford will play behind Zeller now. I'd think Maxiell. Other problem is he can no longer go big at the 3 spot.
Eleven-point lead down to four for Hornets, who have lost Marvin Williams for rest of game (shoulder).
Quite a pass by Big Al out of the double-team for a Gerald Henderson dunk.
Man, the Hornets are having some rough injury luck.
Halftime: Hornets 56, Blazers 45. Roberts with 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting.
Hornets have just two turnovers this half, a big factor in them leading by 11.
Cody Zeller: Nine points off 4-of-7 shooting.
Words I didn't anticipate typing: Brian Roberts is on fire.
Roberts is 5-of-5 from field for 13 points. Hornets bench has scored 21 points.
Cody Zeller jump shot gives Hornets a 37-35 lead. Blazers call timeout.
Brian Roberts ties game at 30-30 on a pull-up in the lane.
Terrific block by Biz of Chris Kaman in the lane.
End of first: Blazers 28, Hornets 26.
Chris Kaman had been asking for that tech for several possessions.
Brian Roberts has it going -- six points in four minutes.
Hairston entering game at small forward. He's been out with an ankle sprain.
Brian Roberts is first sub at shooting guard ahead of P.J. Hairston. (Portland small in backcourt with Lillard and Blake).
Big Al scores after missing his first three shots.
Portland hits five of first nine shots.
It took six shots for Hornets to score. 8-2 Portland.
Hornets are statistically second in the NBA in defensive rebound percentage. But they had such costly lapses against Portland and Indiana.
I do believe Michael Jordan is in the house tonight. He was at morning shootaround.
Hornets all day everyday
Almost game time let's get it!!!
Steve Clifford says rebounding is absolutely the key tonight versus Portland. The Blazers had 15 offensive boards in Nov. 11 game.
Love love love...I love love
Katie is ready for Hornets game day, are you? http://t.co/S9FkZmkSHW
You're not fully dressed until you sparkle
Steve Clifford anticipates using Marvin Williams a lot at small forward tonight to try to match up with Portland's size.
Hornets injury update: P.J. Hairston (ankle sprain) will play tonight. Gary Neal (shoulder sprain) is out.
Big victory for the Warriors. They're in Charlotte Friday.
Terrific first quarter between Heat and Warriors.
I need a 72 hr energy Drink!!
Hornets are listing P.J. Hairston (sprained ankle) as probable for Blazers game and Gary Neal (sprained left shoulder) as doubtful.
Country Roads take me home before the snow
Busy week ahead... Practices, games, work, school, and Thanksgiving!
So tired definitely going to need some coffee this morning ☕️
A remote possibility but: Hornets and Panthers could both reach the playoffs with losing records thanks to low bars.
Excuse the late post...we've been busy celebrating! Happy Birthday
CNN's coverage of Ferguson is excellent real-time journalism.
When asked why Stephenson played 7 minutes in 2nd half, Clifford said ball was "sticking" as in poor ball movement.
Someone's ready for turkey day
