  • The Hidden Positives of Kemba’s All-Star Trip

    By Mark Buonocore on February 19, 2017
      Is there more to All-Star weekend than all the parties, dunks, the three-point shooters and bigs with crazy handles? While I have enjoyed watching Kemba in the 3-Point Contest and Frank light up the scoreboard in the Rising Stars game, there is another aspect of this weekend that could be overlooked as we head into the actual game tonight […]

  • I Am Running Out of Clever Ways to Say the Hornets Lost

    By Mark Buonocore on February 13, 2017
    Lets be honest Hornets fans, tonight’s game was a perfect example of the team’s season wrapped up in one 48-minute game. I feel like every time I write a wrap up article, it starts with the same opening paragraph, and it goes a little something like this. The Hornets came out flat tonight and let a less talented team get […]

    By Mark Buonocore on February 7, 2017
    A win is a win, and boy did the Hornets need this one. They end their ugly seven game losing streak by defeating the Nets 111-107 to bring their record up to 24-28 — keeping them in the playoff race in the East. However, all is not well in Buzz City, as this was not a great outing for the […]

    By Mark Buonocore on February 2, 2017
    We all knew the Hornets were gonna have to play the perfect game against the Warriors in order to have a chance to pull out a win in the second night of a road back to back. We also knew that the Warriors would have to be off a bit for the Hornets to have a shot to win. Neither […]

  • Hornets Fall Flat, Lose to Wizards 109-99

    By Mark Buonocore on January 23, 2017
    Intensity, some teams have it…..some teams don’t. The Hornets are the latter. They were riding a three game winning streak, playing in front of the home town crowd after a day off. Everything pointed to the Hornets having good energy to start tonights game, but inexplicably they came out flat on offense and defense. At this point of the season […]

  • Is this the Best MKG we can Expect?

    By Mark Buonocore on January 20, 2017
    We hear it all the time in sports — the player whose impact can’t be measured by stats. Every team in every sport has the guy who gets described as the “scrappy hustle guy” with the non-stop motor. Announcers tell us all about how every coach loves them, and how fans can’t get enough of their dives and how they […]
  • Is Roy Hibbert the Biggest Reason for Frank Kaminsky’s struggles?

    By Mark Buonocore on January 10, 2017
    This season has been a rough one for Hornets’ second-year big man Frank Kaminsky. His defense has always been a work in progress, but he has really struggled to shoot the ball all year and many nights he seems like he isn’t sure where to be on the court. Now to be fair, if you follow me on Twitter or […]
  • Hornets frustrate Bulls, Send them Home with the Loss.

    By Mark Buonocore on December 23, 2016
    It was a good old Eastern Conference battle at the Hive tonight, a physical match-up of two teams with playoff aspirations. The Hornets got off to a good start, attacking inside and getting to the line. The outside shot was slow to show up, but the Hornets got out in transition and forced the Bulls to take contested shots. The […]
  • Week 9 Preview: Hornets’ Week Ahead Looks Promising

    By Mark Buonocore on December 20, 2016
    After a very demanding stretch of road games, the Hornets finally get a chance to regroup and recuperate this week. This week is an opportunity to get a couple wins versus teams that started the season hot, but have really struggled as of late. It also will give Clifford a chance to work out some issues on the court, as […]
