  • Game #30: Lakers at Hornets

    By Greg Pietras on December 28, 2015
    Lakers at Hornets, 7p ET, FSS There aren’t really must-win nights 30 games into the season, but it’s pretty close for Charlotte this evening against the Lakers.

Overall, they’ve done […]
  • Game #22: Hornets at Memphis Preview

    By Greg Pietras on December 11, 2015
    Hornets at Grizzlies, 8p ET, FSS Despite their similar records, the Hornets (13-8) and the Grizzlies (13-10) probably think of their seasons much differently. Charlotte’s outperforming even optimistic predictions, and are currently on pace for a 50-win season. The Grizzlies have had a much more stressful year. They’ve clawed their way to 13 tight wins, with an average margin of victory of 8.1 points, […]
