Thread: May 9th - New Orleans Pelicans @ Charlotte Hornets - 30-37

    Pelicans May 9th - New Orleans Pelicans @ Charlotte Hornets - 30-37



    Injury situation is much the same as last game, but NAW is probable! Which is good! We'll see if Ingram comes back or not, also.

    Tonight we take on the 33-34 Charlotte Hornets, a team that has been surprisingly good this year and which has benefited from a few years of good drafting: LaMelo has returned and has been far better far quicker than most anticipated, PJ Washington has been really good for them in his sophomore season, and Gordon Hayward has been good. Combine that with solid play from Rozier, good shooting from Graham, and Miles Bridges putting a lot of it together this year, and they've been solid and have a good future. Unfortunately for them, both Bridges and Haywood are out tonight, with Devonte Graham being day-to-day at this point.

    Hornets are 19th in Drtg and 17th Ortg, and have won 3 of their last 5; LaMelo is back and has been playing well for them, recovering from his injury in time to see out the regular season and even potentially getting some playoff experience. Sitting in 8th, the Hornets are currently in good standing for the play ins which gives them something to really play for.

    Let's see what happens tonight.

    In Other Games: Tonight the Bulls take on one of the worst teams in the NBA, the Pistons. Another win from them helps us with lottery odds. The Thunder also play the Kings: we're hoping for a Kings win here.
    Cade Cunningham/Usman Garuba/Jaden Springer/Moses Moody/Corey Kispert endorser.

    Eye test people: analytics people watch more basketball than you do.

    Hopefully Charlotte not to rough on us.

    Cool on NAW. If Didi can replace Iwundu's minutes, that's a nice 10-man tankish rotation to end the season.

    My friend, how can you say that? Nobody, even DiDi himself hasn't any idea if he can sustain his, already limited, game at this level. I do hope you are right, though!!!
    Disclaimer: I would never denigrate or defame Zion Williamson as a man or as a basketball player; he will go down as an NBA great and perhaps a Top 10+ player of all time. Any inference derived from any of my posts to the contrary is your mischaracterization of my words, or a sign of insecurity on your part (perhaps both).

    Respectfully,

    AISI

    Now if I were Griff, I might appeal the fine to keep the story alive. I would want to get every dollar's worth of press coverage on this matter. The inequity in officiating needs to remain at the forefront public discourse until something is done by the league to address it.

    Unfortunately, it IS the squeaky wheel that always gets the grease (or the guy who always flops and complains).

    Sustain? What "limited" game? He has yet to play an NBA minute.

    This past year he shot less than 40% overall (less than 30% from three) and shot less than 70% from the line in Australia, and his calling card (allegedly) is his shooting prowess? I have an open mind, but on face value, I don't see much here. Also, his defense is a work in progress.

    Note: Highlight tubes are just that...HIGHLIGHT TUBES!!!. Buyer Beware!!

    Jesus fn Christ dude. I simply said it'd be a nice rotation to see to close the year. Thats it. Thats all. We've seen enough of Wes Iwundu. Is that ok????

    Nobody said he'll come in and score 25 points per game on 80% shooting. I also don't care what Didi shot in Australia.

    Here's a hint, anytime I say anything about any player....It's not based on "HIGHLIGHT TUBES". Like when I kept talking about Naji? It's because I watched hours of unedited Xavier GAMES.

    Calm your depression.

    I've always been very respectful of you. Take your fowl mouth Sunday posts somewhere else.

    People who get all their information from youtube channels with names like BUCKETSQUAD find it impossible to understand that some people actually just watch a lot of film.

    I personally don't have massive hopes for Didi but I agree with you: can't hurt to see him, if he's good to go. What's the worst that could happen, we lose? Oh no, woe is me.

    I am going to start assuming that all of the posters who have opinions that I disagree with are all alt's of each other. So, there are like 4 posters on this board with 10+ alters each
