Thread: Hornets vs. Clippers Game Thread

    Keys to the Game

    1. Find Ways to Deal with the Pressure

    The Clippers are first in the league in steals and second in the NBA in defensive turnover rate. CP3 figures to lead the league again in steals, but his apprentice Eric Bledsoe is just as good at creating turnovers. Paul is averaging 2.8 steals per 36 minutes, while Bledsoe is averaging 2.7. Matt Barnes, Jamal Crawford, and Blake Griffin all average over a steal a game, and when these guys get a steal, they get the ball to CP3 who always makes you pay in transition.

    2. Attack the Offensive Glass

    The Clippers are 24th in the league in defensive rebound percentage, primarily because DeAndre Jordan only gets 27 minutes per game and when he is off the floor, teams eat the Clippers alive on the boards. When they go small and play Griffin at the five or when they sub Ryan Hollins in, Jason Smith, Ryan Anderson, and Robin Lopez have to make them pay.

    3. Attack the Rim

    The Hornets play a perimeter game offensively, but that is going to have to change tonight if they have any chance of pulling this one out. You have to make the Clippers pay for gambling and for going small, and the way you do that is by attacking and getting to the line. The Clippers have yielded the 5th most free throw attempts in the league this season, as Ryan Hollins, Lamar Odom, and DeAndre Jordan have been fouling machines. Take it inside on those guys and get as many trips to the line as you can.

    The keys to the game are always the same.

    -Don't Turn the ball over
    -Perimeter defense
    -Rebounding/Box out

    Everything else will take care of itself.

    That's good to see.
    If they wanted to trade him, then they wouldn't have asked him to join tonight.

    Two players. Two lower extremities. No discomfort of note.

    Neither are playing.

    Now I do voice overs. Finally!

    Maybe it wouldn't look too bad if they played their best shooter.

    Maybe if we give them our name, our bad luck with injures will transfer to them.

    I'm watching Lillard go 3-16 in Detroit. Detroit will likely get the win and have a better record than the Hornets tonight. Knicks/Nets is a very close game on TNT.

    So the Bobcats just scored 24 points in a single half vs the Thunder.

    They're down 86-42 and it's almost the 4th quarter.

    and I thought we have been playing bad...

    Our badness can be attributed to not having our two best players or two of them playing.

    Carmelo and Tyson are doing their thing but they haven't gotten much from anyone else tonite. Rasheed and Felton have been doing their best to chuck the Knicks out of the game.
