    By Mark Buonocore on April 6, 2017
    The Hornets biggest game of the season was a perfect opportunity to put aside their faults and be in a position to sneak into the playoffs. Instead, we saw a team that repeated the same mistakes we have seen all year in a loss versus a Heat team who has effectively ended their hopes two seasons in a row now. This game contained […]
  • Hornets Playoff Hopes Alive with Win Over Thunder

    By Richie Randall on April 3, 2017
    The Charlotte Hornets defeated the Westbrook-led Thunder Sunday afternoon in impressive fashion. Although Westbrook got his first triple-double against this Charlotte franchise, he was unable to lead them to victory.

  • Hornets Bench comes up Big in Orlando

    By Mark Buonocore on March 23, 2017
    In a game the Hornets had to win, they relied on energy and scoring from their bench to keep them in the game, until closing out a bad Magic team. It was a scene we have seen so many times before, slow start on the road allowing a mediocre team to shoot way better than their season average in the […]
