S/o my man @c_thabarber got me right out here in Charlotte.. Appreciate it homie.. #GoFoll... sqor.com/posts/699dca24… http://t.co/bxD2nParj2

Rick Bonnell

Jarrett Jack just made a terrific play to beat the Warriors. Thinking @Tim Bontemps might write about that just a touch.

Rick Bonnell

So 5 active HOF coaches Bennett has beaten would be Krzyzewski, Boeheim, Williams, Pitino and Brown?

Rick Bonnell

Great ESPN factoid: Tony Bennett only coach with wins over all 5 active HOF college coaches.

Gerald Henderson

The key to consistency is consistency in everything you do, starting with how you think....

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston was inactive tonight. The back story is he missed a weight-training session: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

Gary is smart, professional and skilled. He fits far better as 8th man on a contender than anything on a bad team.

Rick Bonnell

I feel kinda bad for Gary Neal. He would have given up money to the T'Wolves to join a playoff team, and Flip just didn't see it that way.

Rick Bonnell

Mo Williams to the rescue as Hornets hold off Magic in a turnover-filled night: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

Three Hornets takeaways: Too many turnovers, Mo's impact and Biz's predictable rust tonight: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson: "I shot 100 percent from 3 tonight."

Bismack Biyombo

Thankful to be back out there! Good win for us tonight.. Buena Victoria para nosotros en la noche Latina.. #loshornets #Godwill

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson (2-of-3 from long range this season) says he's waiting for that invitation from the NBA for the 3-point contest.

Rick Bonnell

Reason P.J. Hairston wasn't on bench: He didn't have a sports coat to conform to NBA dress policy.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Hornets 98, Magic 83

Rick Bonnell

Mo Williams 4-of-7 from 3 tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets in bonus the rest of the game.

Rick Bonnell

"To guard Al 1-on-1 you've got to be disciplined. If you bite on his fake, give him an angle, he's going to score on you." -- Steve Clifford

Rick Bonnell

How many times has @mcristaldi watched Big Al do that move?

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Henderson with his best overall game in a while. He's 6-of-11 from field and 2-of-3 from 3-point range.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford chose not to pull Zeller after 5th foul.

Rick Bonnell

That pick-and-roll between Mo Williams and Cody Zeller has been quite effective tonight.

Rick Bonnell

That's 5th foul on Cody Zeller.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have 15 turnovers to Magic's 8.

Rick Bonnell

Ben Gordon in to start the fourth for the Magic.

Rick Bonnell

Nik Vucevic has four points on 2-of-8 shooting. Normally he's a major problem for the Hornets to contain.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets shot 13-of-21 in the third quarter for 28 points in building their 11-point lead entering fourth quarter.

Rick Bonnell

Mo Williams (15 points, 10 assists) has been pretty terrific so far as a Hornet.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets shooting 8-of-12 in the second half.

Rick Bonnell

Nik Vucevic having a rough night. Normally he plays very well versus the Hornets.

Rick Bonnell

Henderson's basket ruled good.

Rick Bonnell

Assuming Gerald Henderson's basket is not ruled late, Hornets will lead 43-42 at the half.

Rick Bonnell

"We need to start having more meetings about his defense...and less about what he's got to do to be a dependable player." Cliff in July.

Rick Bonnell

That ballhawking is something I thought we'd see a lot more of from Lance Stephenson.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets with eight turnovers, Magic with none. That's why this is a two-point game.

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller with his third foul.

Rick Bonnell

Celtics 53, Warriors 30. Oh my.

Rick Bonnell

They found a seat on the front row for Kemba tonight, as he hates sitting behind the bench.

Rick Bonnell

Five Hornets turnovers to none for Magic. Said Clifford pre-game: "Our team cannot turn the ball over. When we turn the ball over, we lose."

Rick Bonnell

Luke Ridnour, flopper.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Hornets 28, Magic 22. Hornets are 12-of-22 from the field.

Rick Bonnell

Biz with two quick fouls.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson 3-pointer (upon further review).

Rick Bonnell

I do not see P.J. Hairston along the Hornets bench.

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller with two dunks to start the game.

Rick Bonnell

Rookie P.J. Hairston missed weight-training, will be in active versus Magic tonight: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

I'm told P.J. Hairston being inactive tonight may relate to his having missed a weight training session.

Rick Bonnell

I asked Clifford if he plans to play Kemba and Mo together when Kemba returns. "Definitely," Clifford replied.

Rick Bonnell

Tonight Biz will get about seven minutes in each half as they try to get his game conditioning back.

Rick Bonnell

Bismack Biyombo will play tonight for the Hornets.

Rick Bonnell

Aaron Gordon again out tonight for Magic.

ICYMI Expectations complicated Lance Stephenson's adjustment to the Hornets: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Bismack Biyombo

Good morning from Orlando!! Wishing everyone an outstanding day...

Rick Bonnell

Might've seen worst flop ever in Arizona-Utah game. Arizona kid turned to post and Utah kid became a piñata. Why do college refs enable this

Rick Bonnell

Joe Lunardi has Davidson in tournament right now as an at-large. If that happens, McKillop should get a statue.

Rick Bonnell

One way Krzyzewski and Boeheim are quite similar: Neither believes in deep rotations. They tend to live and die by best 7 players.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford: Outsized expectations made Lance Stephenson's transition to the Hornets all the tougher: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

A neat little story about @Bismack Biyombo offering a warm meal to a very cold homeless man in Chicago: charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/cha…

Rick Bonnell

Kentucky now blowing up Arkansas.

Somebody tell Stephen A that he is on college gameday not first take. #smh

Troy Daniels

Been in cold weather for a while now.. Get to Orlando thinking about a sunny day.. Get here it's cold and rainy 😞..

Rick Bonnell

Ex-Charlotte Hornet Anthony Mason dead at 48: nydailynews.com/sports/basketb…

Rick Bonnell

I'll always remember Mason's agent, Don Cronson saying, "When Mase goes out, the moon is always full."

Rick Bonnell

Rest in peace Anthony Mason.

Rick Bonnell

I took so much grief in August for saying Hornets might be closer to 10th in East than 4th. Weird that I am punished for being right.

Rick Bonnell

Boston is my favorite city in this country. But, man, the winters are hell.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Celtics 106, Hornets 98.

Rick Bonnell

A loss in Boston last season cost the Hornets a lot. They might look back on tonight same way if they don't come back here.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson is scoreless in the second half. Missed his only two shots.

Rick Bonnell

Turnovers are destroying the Hornets tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Mo Williams has been terrific offensively, but he sure doesn't close out very well.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have double Celtics in turnovers 14-7.

Rick Bonnell

Isaiah Thomas is lots of fun to watch create.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets' 16-point third-quarter lead has slipped to six entering final quarter. Some sloppy ballhandling.

Rick Bonnell

Tenth Hornets turnover tonight. That's what's keeping them from really pulling away.

Rick Bonnell

Third time in his first four games Mo Williams has reached 20 points. He's 5-of-9 from 3 tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Kidd-Gilchrist double-double with 3 1/2 minutes left in third.

Rick Bonnell

Mo Williams feeling it.

Rick Bonnell

Very good ball-rotation out of that Big Al double-team to set up Mo Williams with an unguarded 3.

Rick Bonnell

Tyler forces Cody into a walk. Guessing that will come up the next family holiday.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets on a 23-1 run since midway through the second quarter.

Rick Bonnell

MKG has nine rebounds in 15 minutes. Best rebounding small forward in the NBA.

Rick Bonnell

Despite the Celtics' record and all the rebuilding moves the Garden still rocks on a Friday night. Great fans.

Rick Bonnell

ICYMI: Candid comments from Steve Clifford pre-game on Lance Stephenson's challenge so far fitting in: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Hornets 49, Celtics 45.

Rick Bonnell

Celtics are 5-of-8 from 3-point range.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Celtics 27, Hornets 21.

Rick Bonnell

Someone asked Brad Stevens about his team's practice habits. He said he doesn't know since half the team hasn't yet practiced as Celtics.

Rick Bonnell

MKG has grabbed in at least three 50-50 balls already. Stole that rebound from Tyler Zeller.

Rick Bonnell

Midrange Al didn't. Big Al, maybe.

Rick Bonnell

Some "ooohs" from the crowd when Al Jefferson ball-fakes Tyler Zeller on back-to-back possessions for layups. Celtics drafted Big Al.
