Kemba Walker in the "I can't breathe" t-shirt. All Hornets wearing them In warm-ups. http://t.co/EYMuSGzHyv
With Paris, one of the ORIGINAL Honey Bees from the first team ever!
Hornets warming up in the "I can't breathe" T-shirts.
Of course we will help you propose!!!!
Nets starters: Williams, Johnson, Karasev, Jefferson and Plumlee.
Nets will be without starters Brook Lopez and Kevin Garnett, and key reserve Mirza Teletovic. Al Jefferson should be aiming for a big night.
Been asked a couple of times today what the Bobcats' record was at same juncture last season. They were 10-12 after 22 games a year ago.
It was interpreted that Neal swung out his legs, looking to draw contact (the move that Reggie Miller kind of made famous.)
The play was Neal's 3-pointer with 20 seconds left in 2nd OT. Memphis' Tony Allen was called for a foul that sent Neal to line for 3 FTs.
12/13/14 last consecutive date we'll see in our lifetime...hmm

Forward Mirza Teletovic also out for Nets.
If either Neal or Hairston is cited again for flopping this season, it's a $5K fine.
Gary Neal becomes second Hornet to receive a flopping warning this season. P.J. Hairston was the other.
No Kevin Garnett tonight for Nets.
Now you know....that it's game day! Hornets vs Brooklyn tonight at 7pm TWCA

I must say Heels are putting up a fight against Lottery-Picks U. But it's early.
It's beginning to look a lot like
Nothing says Memphis airport quite like the 5-in-a-row Taylor Swift tribute.
More surprisingly Heat also assigning Shabazz Napier to D-League affiliate.
Rise & Shine Beautiful People ✨ Happy Game Day!
Me and my boo and boo boo ridin"
That was a big mistake. But in fairness they never would have been in overtime had he not had the tip-in at the end of regulation.
Gerald Henderson told me post-game he screwed up running out on Gasol, setting up Carter's corner 3. (More)
Final: Grizzlies 113, Hornets 107 in double-overtime.
Vince Carter with a money 3 for Memphis to tie the game at 102-102 with four seconds left.
The gangs all back together! My best friends are the bestestest
Hornets lead 100-99; Gary Neal finds Cody Zeller along the baseline for a layup.
Gasol can't miss from above the key.
OVERTIMEEEEEE!!!!! Let's keep fighting, Charlotte!
Gerald Henderson tip-in forces overtime after Kemba Walker misses a jump shot.
Gary Neal gets Tony Allen up in the air for three free throws.
Gasol 19-footer with 4 1/2 minutes left gives Grizzlies back the lead.
Offense has ground to a halt.
Neal in for Stephenson.
Big deflection by Lance Stephenson to cause that Grizzlies turnover.
Kemba coming back in.
Hornets starters back in with the exception of Roberts for Walker.
Ball ending up in Biz's hands at end of a possession is, well, you know.
They reversed the clear path.
Clear-path call being reviewed.
End of third quarter: Hornets 72, Grizzlies 69.
Gasol and Randolph a combined 6-of-18 from the field. That's opportunity.
If you're wondering what they lacked in MKG's absence, his stealing that rebound from Randolph is example 1A.
Cody Zeller's fourth foul. Not easy guarding Zach Randolph in the post.
Steve Clifford is getting real close to drawing a T from Haywoode Workman. Clifford: "Don't look at me like I'm an idiot."
Let's say Kemba got hit below the belt. He stays in the game.
Kemba still on the floor in pain. Hornets call timeout.
Lance stayed in the game, but he was seriously grimacing, holding his left thumb.
Lance Stephenson is hurt. Left thumb, I think.
Wow is Kemba hot from the outside tonight.
Halftime: Grizzlies 47, Hornets 45. Hornets gave up 51 percent shooting, but their 3-point shooting (4-of-9) kept them in the game.
Nice little comeback for Al Jefferson from a 1-of-5 start from the field tonight.
Gasol and Jefferson, the game's two starting centers, are a combined 2-of-12 from the field.
Outside my hotel: So Memphis is the birthplace of every other T-shirt in Myrtle Beach. http://t.co/wmAZNp3hwt

End of first: Grizzlies 26, Hornets 21. Kemba Walker has 13 points off 5-of-8 from field (3-of-4 from 3-point range).
Al Jefferson starts the game 0-of-4.
MKG in for Henderson.
Hornets start out 0-5 from the field. Cody Zeller to the line should crack the ice.
When the Grizzlies run that high/low post stuff between Randolph and Gasol, it's rough to guard. Both Gasols such good passers.
Clifford said MKG was out of gas after 20 minutes vs. Celtics. Hadn't played in 3 1/2 weeks.
Steve Clifford said MKG will continue coming off bench at least through Saturday as he regains game conditioning.
Back in Atlanta for one night only
Starving!! I need a snack before I hit Shout tonight with my girls
Hornets have taken 59 more free throws than their collective opponent. That's an important stat if they're going to dig out of this record.
Hornets have also played one each against Clippers and Mavs. Seven of their 15 losses are to Western elite with a combined 85-23 record.
How brutal Hornets' early schedule has been: After tonight, they're done with top 3 in West (Memphis, Portland and Golden State).
