The calm before the storm. Tip off in about 7 hrs on @sportsnet 360. @raptors vs #hornets. #rtzinstagram.com/p/z5PUbyI22a/

Adi Joseph

My unscientific last-two-spots-in-the-East odds: Pacers: 78% Hornets: 42% Heat: 31% Celtics: 22% Nets: 17% Pistons: 10%

Tim Bontemps

The Nets had another chance to prove they finally turned the corner this season against the Hornets. They haven't: nyp.st/1zM6q4j

Rick Bonnell

3 Hornets takeaways: MKG's D, "sub-to-win" reasoning and Biz getting back to form: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Brian Mahoney

With a lineup change sparking a blistering start, Hornets rout Nets 115-91 in key game in East race apne.ws/1M9047P

Tim Bontemps

So much for turning a corner. The Nets once again prove they can't be trusted in blowout loss to the Hornets at home: nyp.st/1zM6q4j

Rod Boone

Nets' blowout loss to Hornets could have playoff implications nwsdy.li/1Eo8zcm #Nets

Rod Boone

Deron on #Hornets third quarter: "They came out and just hit us over the head."

Lenn Robbins

Lionel Hollins on the #Hornets: "They came in here and beat us in every facet of the game.'' #Nets

Ohm Youngmisuk

Ewing, in town with CHA, will fly back to NY on Friday + attend Mason's funeral before flying back to Charlotte for Hornets game that night

Mike Mazzeo

#Hornets 115 #Nets 91. Obliterated at home in a game they knew they needed to win. Awful showing.

Rod Boone

Final: #Hornets 115, #Nets 91: Some boos around Barclays Center as final horn sounded.

Tim Bontemps

Nets get run off their home court, lose 115-91 to the Hornets. Fall into 10th place, a game out of eighth.

Rick Bonnell

Cool show right now is Hornets bench. Every time reserves do something good the starters jump up like high school kids winning states.

Alex Raskin

#Hornets are still celebrating Zeller's dunk 45 seconds later.

Alex Raskin

Jerome Jordan bricks a jumper to end the third. #Nets down 88-66. #Hornets are playing better and other stuff, too.

Brian Mahoney

Mo Williams has a season-high 14 assists late third quarter. One off his career high. Might not get to play much in 4th, Hornets up 24.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets are outrebounding Nets 37-22. MKG with 13 boards. If there's a 50-50 possession, it's his tonight.

Tim Bontemps

Welp, that didn't go so well. Hornets open the second half like they did the first, going on 10-2 run to push lead back to 20.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Hornets 56, Nets 44.

Tim Bontemps

Dumb foul by Mason Plumlee there. Needless hack on Al Jefferson with the Hornets in the penalty. Jefferson helps by missing 1-of-2.

Rick Bonnell

BTW, Steve Clifford said pre-game he was the one in Hornets management who most advocated signing Lance Stephenson.

Rick Bonnell

23-point lead down to 13. Timeout Hornets.

Alex Raskin

3-pointer from Thad Young cuts the #Hornets lead to 44-31. 10-0 run for the #Nets.

Rick Bonnell

21-8 rebounding advantage for the Hornets.

Rod Boone

End of first Q: #Hornets 35, #Nets 15: Mo Williams has 5 points and 9 assists already. Brook has 6 points for #Nets. CLT shot 15 of 23

Brian Mahoney

Hornets started 13 of 15, lead Nets 35-15 after one. Teams are tied for eighth in the East coming into the game.

Tim Bontemps

Hornets lead 35-15 after one. Jefferson, Marvin Williams 10 points, Mo Williams 5 points, 9 assists for Charlotte. Lopez with 6 for Nets.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Hornets 35, Nets 15. Hornets made 15 of 23 shots. Mo Williams with 9 assists.

Alex Raskin

Maybe because he's seeing the Charlotte #Hornets for the first time since 1997, but there is a guy doing an Austin Powers imitation near us.

Brian Mahoney

Clifford showed why he's such a good coach. Knew Nets have been a good 1st-quarter team, changed lineup to match them, Hornets rolling.

Alex Raskin

#Nets down 31-10. #Hornets made 13 of 18 shots over the first 9:54.

Rod Boone

Al Jefferson just threw down a flush on Deron that had the #Hornets bench tap dancing with glee.

Alex Raskin

To the #Nets credit, they've had four shots go in and out and the #Hornets have hit some really difficult shots. Lead up to 29-6 now.

Rod Boone

#Nets are getting ran. #Hornets are feeling it.

Brian Mahoney

Here on Latin night in Brooklyn, the Hornets are en fuego. Start 10 of 12 from the field, pounding Nets 24-6.

Alex Raskin

#Hornets start on a 24-6 run. The #Nets have two rebounds compared with Charlotte's 10.

Rick Bonnell

Boos at Barclay seven minutes into this one: Hornets 24, Nets 6.

Tim Bontemps

Hornets are 10-for-12, Nets are 3-for-13. Hornets lead 24-6 with 4:51 left in the first, Nets getting booed by the home fans.

Rod Boone

#Hornets are 10 of 12 from the field while #Nets are 3 for 13. Crowd groaning as #Nets are down 24-6.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets out to a 20-6 lead. MKG is making jumper after jumper. All hail the master, @Mark25Price

Brian Mahoney

Hornets started Marvin Williams for Zeller to match up with Nets' small lineup better. Working so far, Charlotte jumps to 9-2 lead.

Rod Boone

Another reason this game is big for #Nets besides winning the tiebreaker with #Hornets? Charlotte expects to get Kemba back in a week.

Andrew Keh

"Jarrett Jack is killing it," Hornets coach Steve Clifford noted.

Rod Boone

#Hornets coach Steve Clifford gave a pretty detailed explanation of why Lance Stephenson isn't flourishing this season.

Tim Bontemps

Clifford says Hornets will open up playing small, will start Michael Kidd-Gilchrist on Joe Johnson.

Tim Bontemps

Hornets coach Steve Clifford says he thinks Kemba Walker is about a week away from returning to game action for Charlotte.
