This team will rarely win games with 20 turnovers. The one thing that the Hornets can not do is turn the ball over. They can afford to shoot poorly from the field but they absolutely can not give away possessions and points via turnovers.
This was a very winnable game where the team shot themselves in the foot by not protecting the ball.
No they can't be having those turnovers. They outrebounded the Sixers and shot and made more free throws but they also had more turnovers.
And for the record, the people that say attendance doesn't matter are worse than the people who complain about attendance. It may not matter in terms of bench marks and stuff, but it matters that we get out and support this young team.
There was just too much talent in suits tonight. We can break down the finer points all night, but it's hard to overcome such a deluge of injuries.
With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!
Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.
For the love of everything holy, Benson, please stuff Sir Derpington back into the nightmare from which you plucked him.
Good Lord, why are people still talking about attendance ? Benson owns the team. They aren't going anywhere.

I don't even know why we keep preaching to the choir about attendance. Just about everyone here knows about attendance. Try rallying on a corner with a sign or something.
Anyone who complains about attendance should be at games and trying to take as many people as possible with you...
We no longer have benchmarks to meet.
I agree it looks bad on TV yes but complaining about it on a message board won't change that.
Going to the game and putting your *** in a seat will.

why whinge about attendance when you aren't attending yourselves...if I moved to NOLA i'd be attending every game
It's just the way the NBA is. Even though the games count, the pre-season feel lasts until around Christmas. Players will continue to miss games when they break a nail until then, and fans, outside of a few select cities, will not be enthused.
I was geared up to go to the game tonight, but when I heard of all the players out for both teams...no thanks. Was a wise choice.
On to Friday against the Bobs.
A lot of the American viewing audience doesn't even think about the NBA until the Super Bowl is a memory.
Maybe austin is actually a difference maker then.
I wish every game would be sold out, but I don't see anything changing attendance wise early in the year when the Saints are still playing. Once January and such roll around, the seats will fill up. I just don't care about showing great attendance to raise other people's opinions of the team around the nation. To support the team? I can get behind that.
And I don't even care about the T-word. ...though I won't say it.
Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.
Only on WBOK 1230 AM.
Feel free to PM me for more details.
