"'I've thrown him into so many different roles already this season and he has handled them all well." -- Brad Stevens on Gerald Wallace..

Rick Bonnell

Bismack Biyombo will NOT play tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford called Chicago victory "the most complete game that we've played."

Rick Bonnell

Biz, Noah Vonleh, P.J. Hairston and Troy Daniels playing 2-on-2 on the Garden floor.

Rick Bonnell

I'll be joining @Kroeger at 3:45 to talk Hornets on @wfnz

Rick Bonnell

Cavs acting like a 12-point lead is insurmountable.

Cody Zeller

You mean some people don't see blue with black stripes? The world has gone crazy!!!

Rick Bonnell

Joining good friend @Brett_Jensen at 7:30 on @wbt We'll probably discuss our mutual love for Legal Seafood, but might fit in some @Charlotte Hornets

Noah Vonleh

Hahaha had to show the Vet I do this man!!!! Replaying game point instagram.com/p/zlHpSBRBpQ/

Gerald Henderson

Rick Bonnell

Terrific column by @DavidHaugh about Chicago's city-wide angst regarding Derrick Rose's injury: chicagotribune.com/sports/columni…

Maurice Williams

I can't win a hand in poker tonight

Rick Bonnell

Three takeaways from the Charlotte Hornets' 98-86 victory over the Chicago Bulls: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Kings are 2-1 under George Karl with a win over the Grizzlies. That man can really coach.

Rick Bonnell

I need some advice on teams backing into the playoffs. Oh, @josephperson...

Bismack Biyombo

Great win tonight 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝 so proud of the boys! They took care of business.. #Godwill #OnToTheNextone #thankful

Rick Bonnell

Final: Hornets 98, Bulls 86.

Rick Bonnell

The Hornets never lose to the Bulls on a day when Charlotte gets 10 times as much snow as Chicago.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have outscored Bulls in fast-break points 17-3. You don't score in transition much against Thibodeau's defenses.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Hornets 67, Bulls 65. I think MKG was shocked Hinrich blocked that shot.

Rick Bonnell

Back-to-back 3s by Mo Williams gives Hornets a 3-point lead.

Rick Bonnell

Prayers for the family of @Ivan_Maisel whose son has been missing in upstate New York since Sunday.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Hornets and Bulls tied at 44.

Rick Bonnell

Every time I see Nikola Mirotic I think about this: youtube.com/watch?v=x4oPJ6…

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Bulls and Hornets tied at 20. Or as @kcjohnson9 and I always say, first one to 83 points wins.

Rick Bonnell

This game is seven minutes old and Mo Williams has committed two shooting fouls outside the 3-point line. Not good.

Rick Bonnell

Joakim Noah just got away with quite the elbow to Mo Williams' jaw.

Rick Bonnell

Aaron Brooks will start tonight for Bulls.

Rick Bonnell

Bismack Biyombo has yet to go through a full practice. Sounds like him playing in Boston Friday is unlikely.

Rick Bonnell

American (and yes, that means USAirways, too) suspending Charlotte flights as of 9 p.m. tonight, per @ESPortillo

Bismack Biyombo

Was Bless to spent some time last night with this homeless guy over dinner!! instagram.com/p/zh4yM4I0fW/ #Godwill #onelove #onegoal

Bismack Biyombo

God only gives you what you can handle!! #DRose #Staystrong #Godwill

Bismack Biyombo

How crazy is the news about D Rose? To the lover of basketball , pray for him if you have a chance! #staypositive #Godwill

Maurice Williams

I feel like I'm hurt, that's how bad I feel for D Rose. Smh #gooddude

Maurice Williams

Noooo not again D Rose. My prayers are way up for you. #godsplan #dontloseyourfaith

Rick Bonnell

I'm no weather wimp, spent 1st 29 years in upstate NY. But the ice glaze all over Dallas tonight is bad news.

Rick Bonnell

Can't believe @Steve Aschburner would rather chronicle Kevin Garnett's return to Wolves than lunch with me. Then again I might never get to Chicago.

Maurice Williams

God is good to good people

Rick Bonnell

Three takeaways: Teams double Big Al with impunity; Mo a good pickup; calling Zeller a tease was no exaggeration: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

I was a college kid interning at a New Hampshire paper during prez primary. Still remember some woman screaming "We beat the Russians!"

Rick Bonnell

No basket, based on replay just shown here.

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson looks quite frustrated (and distracted) by missing that last jump shot.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Mavericks 28, Hornets 16.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have already committed four turnovers.

Rick Bonnell

Mavs fans sure excited about Amare Stoudemire.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets having some trouble guarding high pick-and-rolls. Rick Carlisle is a terrific offensive coach.

Rick Bonnell

Terrific turnout for Mavs-Hornets, considering the weather forecast.

Rick Bonnell

Dallas getting some heavy winter weather tonight. My flight to Chicago already cancelled. Don't know whether Hornets charter will get out.

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Henderson's LEFT wrist is taped, so this is not the wrist he had surgery on last May.

Rick Bonnell

Asked about his hoarse voice, Steve Clifford replied, "That's what happens when we don't run back or block out."

Rick Bonnell

Re Henderson's wrist: He had surgery last spring to clean out scar tissue. He ices it constantly during games as preventative.

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Henderson has some soreness in his right wrist, but plans to play vs. Mavericks tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Amare available with the Mavericks tonight vs. Hornets.

Rick Bonnell

Dallas small forward Chandler Parsons will miss tonight's Hornets game with an ankle injury.

Cody Zeller

Really enjoying watching @leavinefamily95 move its way up through the field at the #Daytona500

Cody Zeller

90 laps to go and @Mc_Driver is in 14th! Exciting race so far! This could be setting up for a good finish

Cody Zeller

I think @Mc_Driver and @LeavineFamily95 are turning me into NASCAR fans! Good luck today at Daytona!!!

Rick Bonnell

My gamer: Hornets were surprisingly good on offense and disturbingly bad in what they do so well: charlotteobserver.com/2015/02/21/553…

Rick Bonnell

Three Hornets takeaways after they did what they always do: Lose to the Thunder: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Chandler Parsons doubtful to play vs. Hornets Sunday.

Rick Bonnell

This Gonzaga-St. Mary's ending was the scene in every "Wicked Tuna" episode when the line snaps and the 500-pound fish swims away laughing.

Maurice Williams

#ValentineDayMassacreTWO In the streets right now. Go check out my lil bro rozaymo601 click the link… instagram.com/p/zZAAMenff-/

Bismack Biyombo

Tough lost__ we learn and we move on! Thanks to all the fans for coming out, We are truly bless and thankful!! #Godwill

Rick Bonnell

Final: Thunder 110, Hornets 103.

Rick Bonnell

D.J. Augustin playing 2-guard, just drained a 3.

Rick Bonnell

BTW: Pizza number achieved.

Rick Bonnell

MKG's 18 points are a season-high.

Rick Bonnell

Thunder's second-chance points now at 20. OKC outrebounding the Hornets 52-34.

Rick Bonnell

Anthony Morrow adds to the list of Ts.

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Henderson is 2-of-9.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Thunder 86, Hornets 83

Rick Bonnell

That's a 20-10 game for Mo Williams and it's still the third quarter.

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson is 2-of-9 after that missed layup.

Rick Bonnell

Mo Williams debuts as a Hornet with a double-double: 16 points and 10 assists so far.

Rick Bonnell

MKG looks very efficient offensively tonight. Has made 6-of-10 from the field for 12 points.

Rick Bonnell

Serge Ibaka with a flagrant. This game is really physical right now.

Rick Bonnell

Fans tried starting a wave tonight. Didn't get past ripple stage.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson gets a T. This is getting a bit chippy.

Rick Bonnell

At least that time Gerald Henderson didn't hit a fan with that overthrown pass.

Rick Bonnell

Yes, technical foul on Lance Stephenson.

Rick Bonnell

Mo Williams is 3-of-5 from 3-point range. Rest of Hornets a combined 0-of-9.

Rick Bonnell

I think Lance Stephenson got a T at the end of the half. We'll see.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Thunder 59, Hornets 56. OKC has 14 second-chance points.

Rick Bonnell

Westbrook in transition those last two possessions just ripped up Hornets' defense.

Rick Bonnell

Mo Williams 3-of-5 from 3 so far. They need that spacing badly.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson doing a good job of fighting through double-teams tonight. He's 5-of-7 for 11 points.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets -- best defensive rebound % in NBA -- have given up 12 2nd-chance points to the Thunder already. That's trouble.

Rick Bonnell

Bad stretch of defense there: Hornets trail by 7, Clifford calls timeout.

Rick Bonnell

I wondered if Jeff Taylor would stay in the rotation with MKG back. Clearly yes.
