Rick Bonnell

Fifth foul on Zeller, Williams back in.

Rick Bonnell

Big Al with a very quiet 12 points tonight.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Clippers 78, Hornets 70.

Rick Bonnell

Chris Paul has a season-high 14 assists. HIs career high is 21.

Rick Bonnell

Clippers lead up to 10 in a Turkoglu 3-pointer

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller season-high 15 points. He's matched his career high.

Rick Bonnell

Chris Paul's mid-range pull-up is a lost art.

Rick Bonnell

I should think Marvin's foul troubles mean some minutes for Jason Maxiell tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams' fourth foul, grabbing DeAndre Jordan under the basket, fighting for a rebound.

Rick Bonnell

Third foul on Marvin Williams in 11 minutes tonight. That one was a little questionable.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Clippers 56, Hornets 53. A very entertaining half it was.

Rick Bonnell

Good game going on tonight between Kemba and CP3.

Rick Bonnell

A further oddity: It wasn't even a shooting foul. J.J. Redick grabbed him on a rebound attempt.

Rick Bonnell

Williams took 15 games and 360 game minutes this season to get to the foul line for the first time.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams to the foul line. A first this season!

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller just made Big Baby Davis look turtle-like.

Rick Bonnell

Clippers lead down to 2 on Brian Roberts steal and layup.

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson being guarded by Hedo Turkoglu. If that isn't an invitation to create...

Rick Bonnell

Spencer Hawes was still screaming at the refs as he reached Clippers bench with third foul. Pretty hot.

Rick Bonnell

Spencer Hawes deserved that technical. Was really showing up the ref.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Clippers 31, Hornets 23.

Rick Bonnell

Clippers also going small with Paul, Farmar and Crawford.

Rick Bonnell

Remember when Steve Clifford called his team "tiny?" He has Kemba Walker, Brian Roberts and Gary Neal in together.

Rick Bonnell

Chris Paul posting up Kemba Walker.

Rick Bonnell

Reggie Bullock with an air ball in his first NBA start.

Rick Bonnell

Cody Zeller's turn on Blake Griffin.

Rick Bonnell

DeAndre Jordan bit big-time on Al Jefferson's ball fakes. Not alone that way.

Rick Bonnell

Second foul on Marvin Williams. He was not placed on this Earth to guard Blake Griffin.

Rick Bonnell

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.

Rick Bonnell

Former North Carolina player Reggie Bullock starting for Clippers tonight. Matt Barnes out with a calf injury.

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston is out tonight, according to Steve Clifford.

Rick Bonnell

"He's the best point guard in the league." Clifford on Chris Paul.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets now listing P.J. Hairston (ankle sprain) as questionable for tonight's game. Surprised me considering how limited he's been.

Rick Bonnell

They're letting MKG do some light shooting so long as he doesn't leave his feet.

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte Hornets forward Jeff Taylor won't appeal suspension. He apologized, sounded contrite in first interview: charlotteobserver.com/2014/11/24/533…

Rick Bonnell

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.

Rick Bonnell

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.

On to the next one

Kristen

It's still a full season left

Cara Stutts

come onnnn! we need this boys!

Rick Bonnell

Can't blame Cody Zeller for that one. Chris Bosh made a very difficult baseline fade.

Rick Bonnell

Kemba walks right before Chris Bosh would have fouled him.

Rick Bonnell

Great penetration by Mario Chalmers draws Kemba Walker's foul.

Rick Bonnell

Wow, Gary Neal rescued that bad possession.

Rick Bonnell

Big-time runner from Lance Stephenson.

Rick Bonnell

Napier 3-pointer gives Heat back the lead at 87-86 with 5:12 left.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets push out to an eight-point lead with 6:42 left.

Rick Bonnell

Heat fans fired up that Lance Stephenson has five fouls.

Rick Bonnell

A whole lot of time left in this one.

Rick Bonnell

The description of Gary Neal as just a shooter is so inaccurate.

Rick Bonnell

Roberts, Neal, Williams, Zeller and Biz to start fourth.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets 72, Heat 67 end of third.

Rick Bonnell

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.

Rick Bonnell

Biz with a classic moving screen -- a point of emphasis this season.

Rick Bonnell

That was one sloppy turnover by Kemba.

Rick Bonnell

Shabazz Napier was trying to guard Cody Zeller in the post. So that foul was the least of many bad alternatives for Napier.

Rick Bonnell

Best I've seen Big Al and Kemba collaborate offensively this season.

Rick Bonnell

Double foul for Shannon Brown and Lance Stephenson. Stephenson might get a flop warning for that one.

Rick Bonnell

Good read of the double-team by Big Al. Ball ended up swinging to Kemba for a corner 3.

Rick Bonnell

Tie game on Lance Stephenson's elbow jumper.

Rick Bonnell

Henderson is playing up more on Deng this half; getting some help from teammates to contain Deng's drive game.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets 7-0 run to start the second half, cutting the deficit to two. Sloppy ballhandling by the Heat.

Rick Bonnell

Henderson again guarding Deng.

Rick Bonnell

McRoberts came over to Hornets bench to greet the coaches. He and Clifford are very fond of each other.

Rick Bonnell

I'll be real curious if Clifford has Henderson start second half guarding Deng. That didn't go well at all first half.

Rick Bonnell

After that terrific first quarter, Al Jefferson scored just two points second quarter.

Rick Bonnell

Heat shooting 22-of-37. So to some extent Hornets fortunate to be down 9 at halftime.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Heat 53, Hornets 44. Luol Deng went off for 19 points on 8-of-10 shooting.

Rick Bonnell

Clifford went to ref David Guthrie at end of half hot about something. Guess it was whether McRoberts fouled Henderson.

Rick Bonnell

McRoberts 3 makes it a nine-point Heat lead.

Rick Bonnell

Now it's Marvin WIlliams' turn to chase around Chris Bosh.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams now playing small forward, matched against Luol Deng.

Kristen

Watching basketball...laid up on the couch with a bowl of lobster tail soup...#theLife

Rick Bonnell

If McRoberts is out as well as Anderson, Heat getting really depleted among bigs.

Rick Bonnell

Shawne Williams changes up the situation with his 3-point range. Zeller matches with him and Biyombo is assigned Bosh.

Rick Bonnell

As the first Hornets-Heat game indicated, Cody Zeller can guard Chris Bosh, which buys the Hornets minutes at center.

Rick Bonnell

Mentor-protégé matchup now between McRoberts and Zeller.
