    yeah this aggravated me when I saw it earlier in the week. I really wanted to watch this game live b/c I'm normally at work during most Hornets games (making me really dislike the evening/night shift)... but sorry... LSU game against Alabama will win my viewership this night... I'll be flipping to the Hornets game during lulls in the LSU game though... and I'll be cheering on both the Hornets and Tigers.

    def watch the Hornets replay at midnight though

    edit: going to be a tough 1 w/o AD23... but it'll be next man up... buckle down and fight for it

    yes... he's out... from the Jazz/Hornets game recap

    http://scores.espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=400277741

    The team said after the game that Davis had a mild concussion and would not accompany the team to Chicago for Saturday night's game and listed him as day to day.

    That's crap.....who could have visited his family while he was in Chicago.

    I think Monty sticks with bringing Anderson off the bench and gives Smith the start. That second unit is just miserable offensively, so Ryan Anderson has to give it a boost. Either way, I think Anderson gets a ton of minutes because he is the only real offensive mismatch we have in this game. If he's not on, this game could get ugly quick.

    Anderson will definitely start in my opinion. Without him, the first unit will get leveled pretty hard.

    Also, Monty needs to bench Rivers and go with Mason like he did last night late in the game. Rivers seems better at the PG spot and doesn't bring any offense at the SG. Let Mason start and at least give the team some shooting and let Rivers run the backup point.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    I don't know if Monty Williams or Anderson told Reid this or if he's simply just speculating but....


    New Orleans Hornets forward Ryan Anderson is expected to earn his first start Saturday night against the Chicago Bulls, replacing rookie Anthony Davis in the lineup.

    Thank goodness for DVRs.

    As long as we were able to put last night's win out of our minds and move forward, we should continue to compete. I think we match up pretty well with the Roseless bulls.

    But I am worried about Rip having a ton of open looks as Rivers is still learning how to fight through screens

    Anderson started in the second half, so it's mostly he will start tonight.

    This for sure. The guy is a creator for himself and for others. He was doing some real nice things offensively last night. As soon as his shot starts falling, he'll be fine. I also noticed that he was working a lot on his floater before the game yesterday. Looks real natural, and that should be a bread and butter shot for him.

    Hornets defense and rebounding will be the key yet again.

    I agree. Right now, Rivers doesn't excel as well off the ball so playing him at SG next to Vasquez doesn't help him. Put the ball in his hands, let him create. Plus, he's showing he can defend on the ball well. Eventually his shots will improve and maybe in time develop into a SG, but right now his game is much more suited to running the point since he feels more naturally at creating for others and himself. He got 6 assists for a reason in limited. Also I noticed his defense being much better guarding the PGs since he has very quick feet and is not physically developed yet to chase bigger SGs.

    Im so glad aminu is showing us what he can be. Ppl hopefully will stop doubting him, and maybe he will lock up SF. Miller seems like a good player to come off the bench. Very impressed with him too.

    As for this game, after two games I'm confident that we can handle their front court with Smith/Anderson/Lopez. Limit turnovers and hit your shots.

    We can do this, but big road test for a young team. Lucky to be catching them without Rose, have to take advantage.
