Cody Zeller

My guy @23Abell lives for matchups against talented scorers like RJ Hunter. @DeeDavisX just knows how to win and loves to compete. Congrats!

Rick Bonnell

Not surprised N,C. State leading at half. Villanova is well coached but nothing overwhelming about their talent.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets forward Cody Zeller will be listed as questionable for tomorrow's game against the Timberwolves. Ongoing soreness in right shoulder.

Rick Bonnell

I get argument low-seeded Dayton shouldn't have played these games so close to home. Problem is they were under-seeded. Committee screwed up

Rick Bonnell

Re Dunlap: When you can't get along with Stephanie Ready, that might be a you problem.

Rick Bonnell

Watching St. John's play at TWC Arena it's hard not to think about the bizarre Mike Dunlap season: How to alienate a whole team in 40 days.

Rick Bonnell

Gonzaga isn't particularly athletic, but they're big and skilled. A tough out, no doubt.

Rick Bonnell

While I'd like to be at Hornets-Kings, the Cioppino at Rossa's is pretty terrific. http://t.co/axUQ9xYzrB

Rick Bonnell

I'm not at Hornets-Kings tonight. I'll be curious how much Lance plays now that Mo comes off the bench. He was DNP 2nd half Tuesday.

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston is active tonight. Troy Daniels and Noah Vonleh inactive.

Rick Bonnell

Kurt Busch wins the pole in Fontana.

Rick Bonnell

Per @Brian Windhorst Pacers planning for Paul George to start playing sometime next week. Hornets at Pacers 2 weeks from today.

Rick Bonnell

Multiple reports of bees infesting the XFINITY Series garage at Auto Club Speedway today. That could be a problem.

Rick Bonnell

I won't be at Hornets-Kings tonight, as I'm filling in on NASCAR. Your best follow tonight would be @Jason Jones

Rick Bonnell

NASCAR driver Brian Vickers again sidelined due to blood clots: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nascar-…

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

God fearing, God willing...

Cody Zeller

GAMETIME!!!!! Let's go Hoosiers!!!

Rick Bonnell

Neat story by @davidscott14 about Davidson MBB reaching out to a big-hearted teenager: charlotteobserver.com/sports/college…

Rick Bonnell

I won't be at Kings-Hornets tonight or T'Wolves game Sunday. Filling in for @jim_utter on NASCAR in Fontana.

Rick Bonnell

Detailed, interesting story by @laurakeeley on how gifted freshmen figure it out in Duke's basketball culture: charlotteobserver.com/sports/college…

Rick Bonnell

Few things more fun in sports than the "What if?" of Harvard-UNC or Wofford-Arkansas.

Rick Bonnell

Find TNT for Arkansas-Wofford. This dude can coach.

Rick Bonnell

That SMU kid showed so much class and courage by dealing head-on with bizarre ending today.

Rick Bonnell

Wofford doing a terrific job of mucking it up against Arkansas.

Rick Bonnell

Gotta like that Hampton isn't timid about driving on Kentucky's big men.

Rick Bonnell

Upset alert: Hampton leads Kentucky...ok, it's 4-3, but might be last time tonight you could tweet that.

Rick Bonnell

Last 2 hours are what NCAA tournament is all about: Harvard put some scare into the Heels.

Rick Bonnell

Good read from #TimBontemps on Bobby Hurley's 2nd act: nyp.st/1GvGFKQ

Troy Daniels

Troy Daniels

Troy Daniels

Maurice Williams

No SMU, another game on my bracket that messed up. They gave it away #smuvsucla

Troy Daniels

LETS GOOOOO VCUUUUUU..!!!!!!!!

Rick Bonnell

NBA fines Wizards' Marcin Gortat $5,000 for flopping.

Rick Bonnell

Kings center DeMarcus Cousins (calf strain) couldn't practice today, so it sounds unlikely he'd play Friday vs. Hornets.

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller (sprained shoulder) practiced today. Hornets will list him as questionable for Kings game.

Rick Bonnell

I'll be joining @ESPN730 at 1:15 to talk Hornets and ask Marty Hurney how he put up with Southern California traffic.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

This Boeheim presser is fascinating.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

"I wake up hungry, not for food but for more. More success, more fuel to add to the fire, more challenges to come my way. I live for this."

Rick Bonnell

So NFL suing Mecklenburg County for Hardy evidence. Hardball time.

Rick Bonnell

Kings center DeMarcus Cousins out vs. Clippers tonight with a calf strain. Hornets play at the Kings Friday.

Rick Bonnell

I'll miss the next 2 Hornets games in Sacramento and Minnesota to fill in for @jim_utter at NASCAR race in Fontana.

Noah Vonleh

Rick Bonnell

On Lance sitting 2nd half, hiding Mo's D and J.J. Redick's steady growth: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Final: Clippers 99, Hornets 92

Rick Bonnell

Clippers owner Steve Ballmer working the home crowd on the scoreboard during timeout.

Rick Bonnell

Holly Robinson Peete just shown on the scoreboard.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Clippers 77, Hornets 74. Kemba Walker and Mo Williams both at 14 points. Clippers committed eight turnovers in the 3rd.

Rick Bonnell

Offensive foul and a technical on Gerald Henderson.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Clippers 59, Hornets 41.

Rick Bonnell

Big Baby is signing and dancing to the music during a timeout.

Rick Bonnell

End of first Hornets trail Clippers 28-20. They committed six turnovers to Clippers' two.

Rick Bonnell

Hey @Dan Woike when did Big Baby become Vince Wilfork?

Rick Bonnell

That MKG turnover was the Hornets' 5th. Clippers have one. That will not do, particularly on the road.

Rick Bonnell

Doc Rivers was Al Jefferson's first NBA coach. Doc was the one who made the original analogy to Moses Malone's game.

Rick Bonnell

That last possession Clippers guards did nothing really to help on Al Jefferson.

Rick Bonnell

Clippers seem content with Jordan guarding Big Al 1-on-1. Al has seven points already.

Rick Bonnell

Two fouls each now on Marvin Williams and Gerald Henderson.

Rick Bonnell

Second foul on Marvin Williams. Cody Zeller's absence really tests depth when you have to contain Blake Griffin.

Rick Bonnell

Mo Williams guarding 6-10 Hedo Turkoglu. This should be interesting.

Rick Bonnell

Maybe not right from the start, but Chris Paul might be cause for some cross-matching defensively. MKG on CP3? Mo on J.J.?

Rick Bonnell

With Matt Barnes and Jamal Crawford both out tonight, Clippers are really thin at small forward.

Rick Bonnell

Asked when Kemba Walker might start again, Steve Clifford said, "Obviously he's rusty. He was out six weeks."

Rick Bonnell

Matt Barnes out for Clippers. Turk will start.

Rick Bonnell

The Hornets hope to have Cody Zeller back for Friday in Sacramento versus the Kings.

Noah Vonleh

Elliot Williams

Me and @Anthony Davis jumping in the their selfie.. Lol We r sick for this one... #Pelicans instagram.com/p/0Vem-asJBz/

Rick Bonnell

Franchise record for fewest points in a game is 59 against Boston a few seasons back.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Jazz 94, Hornets 66.

Rick Bonnell

Rodney Hood now 5-of-5 from 3.

Rick Bonnell

Troy Daniels coming in, I presume for Kemba.

Rick Bonnell

Not sure what purpose it serves for Kemba to be in this fourth quarter.

Rick Bonnell

Jazz mascot just came out in exterminator uniform, spraying everything. At end of skit dozens of stuffed-animal Hornets dropped from ceiling

Rick Bonnell

Not often an NBA team fails to reach 50 in three quarters...Jazz 85, Hornets 46.

Rick Bonnell

Rookie Rodney Hood is 6-of-6 from field tonight.and 4-of-4 from 3-point range. Former Duke player with a fine future.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Jazz 61, Hornets 30.

Rick Bonnell

Jazz outrebounding the Hornets 25-10.

Rick Bonnell

Clifford is philosophically opposed to giving up on games, but with Clippers tomorrow night, might cut Hornets' losses 2nd half.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets trail 43-19. Jazz has made 11 of its 12 3-point attempts.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Jazz 30, Hornets 16. Jazz shot eight of nine from 3.

Rick Bonnell

Hayward generated 11 points off five shots.

Rick Bonnell

Gordon Hayward with a nice block of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist there. What might have been in Charlotte.

Rick Bonnell

Jazz a dramatically better team than start of the season. Quin Snyder has done a good job as a rookie NBA head coach.

Rick Bonnell

Pacers getting rolled by the Raptors tonight.

Rick Bonnell

All three former Jazz players -- Al Jefferson, Mo Williams and Marvin Williams -- got a nice ovation from the crowd here in SLC.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets vice chairman Curtis Polk is at tonight's Jazz game, sitting with Buzz Peterson.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets inactives tonight: Cody Zeller (sprained right shoulder) and P.J. Hairston.

Rick Bonnell

Jazz dramatically better of late, particularly at the defensive end. Big front line (Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors) make it hard to post.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson will start tonight.

Rick Bonnell

No Cody Zeller tonight and probably not tomorrow vs. Clippers.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford says Al Jefferson will play, hopefully, his normal minutes vs. Jazz.

Gerald Henderson

when you ACTUALLY get that 8hrs.....ahhhhhhhhhh☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️
