    Crowd the lane and let Westbrook shoot 40 times. Put Rivers on him!

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

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    Couple things to note:

    OKC does not rebound the ball well offensively, but they do defensively.

    OKC has one of the best shooting percentages (4th overall) from three in the league, we allow one of the worst shooting percentages (2nd overall) from three. Should be fun to watch.


    Who's going to be in the Hive tonight?

    I 'll be there! It's going to be a tough one. Hope A.D. has a better game tonight then he did on Wednesday. We need A.D. and Randerson to bring their A game tonight!

    More notes:

    OKC averages 5 more possessions per game then we do (93 to 88).

    OKC averages 27 points in the fourth quarter, which is second best in the league. We rank 13th allowing 23 in the fourth.

    OKC only averages 56.7 ppg on two point field goals (20th in the league), and 19 ppg from three point field goals. Why is that? Get this, 24% of their points come from the free throw line. That's first in the league and the 2nd place team is two percentage points behind them. What does that mean for us? Don't foul, don't let them get to the line where they shoot the 2nd highest percentage in the league.

    This is the game, if we give them easy points at the line with the clock stopped, our chances go out the window. I guess luckily for us, only one team commits less fouls per game than we do, and that's Indiana.

    Coming to the Hive tonight? Want to be part of a Hornets commercial? Just stop by Sec. 123 and get your chance to shine in the spotlight!

    I actually think we win this in a comfortable fashion if we play our best game. Unmitigated Westbrook is enough to make me think this. Harden really made a difference for that team. I mean, we played pretty awfully against Houston and made it a 4 point game. I think we win by 7 if everyone shows up in some capacity.

    That being said, young teams are generally very inconsistent, so in reality we will probably lose by 7-10. It should be good.

    So what's your REAL prediction?

    If Davis, Lopez, and Aminu combine for 32 rebounds, I love our chances. Add Anderson and Smith to the party, and you have 40+ rebounds.

    Davis needs more play time in the first half than Lopez got last game

    Aminu had his hands full tonight. Going to be important that we make Durant work on the defensive side of the ball.

    #Hornets Jason Smith's thumb not 100%, painful to hold the ball. He's playing tonight vs #Thunder, but Monty won't hesitate to pull him.

    Ibaka currently leads the league in blocks. Davis comes in at #4. Not bad for a rookie.

    The guy in the pre-game show said "you won't go into the Thunder's house"... This game is being played in New Orleans.

    I heard that. He said something about not being able to go into the Thunder's house and outshoot them.
