HoopsHype Charlotte Hornets twitter
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
Rough night for Lance Stephenson. He's 1-of-8 from field for 3 points and has played seven minutes this half.
Gary Neal -- left shoulder contusion -- out the rest of the game.
Fifth foul on Zeller, Williams back in.
Here comes Big Al.
Big Al with a very quiet 12 points tonight.
End of third: Clippers 78, Hornets 70.
Chris Paul has a season-high 14 assists. HIs career high is 21.
Clippers lead up to 10 in a Turkoglu 3-pointer
Cody Zeller season-high 15 points. He's matched his career high.
Chris Paul's mid-range pull-up is a lost art.
I should think Marvin's foul troubles mean some minutes for Jason Maxiell tonight.
Marvin Williams' fourth foul, grabbing DeAndre Jordan under the basket, fighting for a rebound.
Third foul on Marvin Williams in 11 minutes tonight. That one was a little questionable.
Halftime: Clippers 56, Hornets 53. A very entertaining half it was.
Good game going on tonight between Kemba and CP3.
A further oddity: It wasn't even a shooting foul. J.J. Redick grabbed him on a rebound attempt.
Williams took 15 games and 360 game minutes this season to get to the foul line for the first time.
Marvin Williams to the foul line. A first this season!
Cody Zeller just made Big Baby Davis look turtle-like.
Clippers lead down to 2 on Brian Roberts steal and layup.
Lance Stephenson being guarded by Hedo Turkoglu. If that isn't an invitation to create...
Spencer Hawes was still screaming at the refs as he reached Clippers bench with third foul. Pretty hot.
Spencer Hawes deserved that technical. Was really showing up the ref.
End of first: Clippers 31, Hornets 23.
Clippers also going small with Paul, Farmar and Crawford.
Remember when Steve Clifford called his team "tiny?" He has Kemba Walker, Brian Roberts and Gary Neal in together.
Chris Paul posting up Kemba Walker.
Reggie Bullock with an air ball in his first NBA start.
Cody Zeller's turn on Blake Griffin.
DeAndre Jordan bit big-time on Al Jefferson's ball fakes. Not alone that way.
Second foul on Marvin Williams. He was not placed on this Earth to guard Blake Griffin.
The traditional "Boo J.J. Redick on every touch" folk.
"I coached him and I couldn’t tell you what the hell he does. He throws up crazy shots that go in.” -- Doc Rivers on Al Jefferson.
Former North Carolina player Reggie Bullock starting for Clippers tonight. Matt Barnes out with a calf injury.
P.J. Hairston is out tonight, according to Steve Clifford.
"He's the best point guard in the league." Clifford on Chris Paul.
Hornets now listing P.J. Hairston (ankle sprain) as questionable for tonight's game. Surprised me considering how limited he's been.
They're letting MKG do some light shooting so long as he doesn't leave his feet.
Taylor will not appeal the NBA's 24-game suspension.
Twitter is built on emotion, not reason. That's OK, but it doesn't make for a more informed society.
I've always thought the best part of my job is making people think. I don't get the sense that's the platform Twitter is building.
Jeff Taylor will meet with Charlotte media tomorrow afternoon.
In other news...Walking dead time
On to the next one
It's still a full season left
come onnnn! we need this boys!
Can't blame Cody Zeller for that one. Chris Bosh made a very difficult baseline fade.
Kemba walks right before Chris Bosh would have fouled him.
Great penetration by Mario Chalmers draws Kemba Walker's foul.
Wow, Gary Neal rescued that bad possession.
Big-time runner from Lance Stephenson.
Napier 3-pointer gives Heat back the lead at 87-86 with 5:12 left.
Hornets push out to an eight-point lead with 6:42 left.
Heat fans fired up that Lance Stephenson has five fouls.
A whole lot of time left in this one.
The description of Gary Neal as just a shooter is so inaccurate.
Roberts, Neal, Williams, Zeller and Biz to start fourth.
Hornets 72, Heat 67 end of third.
Don't mean to get NFC South-like, but Hornets winning tonight would atone for that loss at home to Orlando Friday as far as division record.
Biz with a classic moving screen -- a point of emphasis this season.
That was one sloppy turnover by Kemba.
Heat shot clock.
Shabazz Napier was trying to guard Cody Zeller in the post. So that foul was the least of many bad alternatives for Napier.
Best I've seen Big Al and Kemba collaborate offensively this season.
Double foul for Shannon Brown and Lance Stephenson. Stephenson might get a flop warning for that one.
Good read of the double-team by Big Al. Ball ended up swinging to Kemba for a corner 3.
