Game Preview

  • Hornets-Heat 5-on-5 round-table preview: Charlotte speaks

    By Spencer Percy on April 15, 2016
    Charlotte is back in the postseason for the first time since ’13-14, and this time it feels like the Hornets have a legitimate chance to win a series. Like in ’13-14, Charlotte will face Miami in the first-round, but it’s a very different Heat squad. As to say, Lebron James is no longer wearing a Heat jersey and Chris Bosh […]
  • Game #81: Hornets Travel To Boston As Playoffs Loom

    By Greg Pietras on April 11, 2016
    Hornets at Celtics, 7:30p ET, FSS Yesterday’s loss to Washington closed the door on homecourt advantage, so Charlotte has a choice in front of them. They can fight hard in tonight’s game against Boston, hoping to tune up and smooth out their issues heading into the playoffs. They could also choose to rest, settling for the sixth seed and a possibly more favorable matchup against […]
  • Game #79: Hornets Return Home For Face-Off With Brooklyn

    By Greg Pietras on April 8, 2016
    Nets at Hornets, 7:00p ET, FSS Charlotte’s still in the running for homecourt advantage in the first round, but the chance at the third seed is pretty slim: Atlanta sits 1.5 games up on the Hornets, and Charlotte would also have to leapfrog Miami and Boston with just four games left to play. Tonight’s game against the Nets is probably the easiest of […]
  • Game #78: Hornets Hunting For Bounce-Back Win Against Knicks

    By Greg Pietras on April 6, 2016
    Hornets at Knicks, 7:30p ET, FSS   With Tuesday’s loss to Toronto, the Hornets’ odds of landing homecourt advantage got a little slimmer. They’re currently in sixth place and just 1.5 games back of the third-seeded Hawks, but Boston, Atlanta and Miami all hold tiebreakers over Charlotte. (The Hornets have an outside shot of earning the tiebreaker over the Heat, but it would require […]
  • Game #75: Hornets Play Host To 76ers, Look To Climb Standings

    By Greg Pietras on April 1, 2016
    76ers at Hornets, 7:00p ET, FSS   It feels a little pointless to discuss the on-court matchups in this game — the Hornets are good enough and the 76ers are bad enough that a Charlotte loss would mean both sides had a significantly fluky game. That probably would have been true even before Philadelphia lost Nerlens Noel and Jerami Grant for […]
  • Game #72: Hornets Face Tough Test In Detroit

    By Greg Pietras on March 25, 2016
    Hornets at Pistons, 7:30p ET, FSS With the Eastern Conference standings as tight as they are, every remaining game will be key for Charlotte. Tonight’s is especially important: A win would not only extend the gap between the Hornets and Detroit, making a playoff lock more likely, but every W means keeping pace in the conference standings with Boston, Miami and Atlanta. The Hawks […]
  • Hornets Grind Out 105-100 Win In Brooklyn

    By Greg Pietras on March 22, 2016
    You’d hope for a better show against a down-on-its-luck team like Brooklyn, but considering the circumstances, Charlotte’s likely just happy with their 105-100 victory. The Hornets won ugly on Tuesday without Marvin Williams and just 24 hours after pulling off a substantial upset against the San Antonio Spurs. The first quarter went largely as planned, despite Frank Kaminsky being plugged […]
  • Game #68: Hornets Aim To Even Series With Heat In Miami

    By Greg Pietras on March 17, 2016
    Hornets at Heat, 7:30p ET, FSS The Hornets head to Miami tonight for their final game against the Heat, and it’ll be a real test of the recent success Charlotte’s found on offense. Miami plays a very controlled defense, slowing down the pace to a crawl, avoiding fouls and limiting opponent three-pointers whenever possible. That’s helped keep them relevant despite an offense that looks […]
  • Game #62: Timberwolves at Hornets

    By Greg Pietras on March 7, 2016
    Hornets vs. Timberwolves, 7p ET, FSS This is Charlotte’s second matchup against Minnesota, but it’s not quite the same team they saw (and beat) way back on Nov. 10. Veterans Kevin Martin and Andre Miller have both moved on to the Spurs, and — more importantly — rookie Karl-Anthony Towns has come into his own. Towns scored 19 and grabbed 13 […]
  • Game #56: Hornets Hunt For Another Upset Against Cavaliers

    By Greg Pietras on February 24, 2016
    Hornets @ Cavaliers, 7p ET, FSS   You’d usually look at these two teams’ records and mentally pencil in a loss for Charlotte, but there are reasons for hope. The Hornets upset the Cavaliers back on Feb. 4, they’re riding a season-best five-game win streak, and they’ve have had plenty of rest since Sunday’s game against Brooklyn. Of course, losing Michael Kidd-Gilchrist to […]
