Hornets Look to bounce back and get some payback against the Atlanta Hawks.
2 PM ET @ Time Warner Cable arena

The Hornets looked overwhelmed at in the middle of the game. Seemed to let the Turnovers get to them as The GHawks went up big going into the fourth. But The Hornets seemed to turn it around to cut the lead to 2 with about a minute left in the game. The upset fell a bit short though, as Kemba Walker misses a game tying 3 pointer and the hornets fall 97-94

Batum led with 14 points walker added 11, and williams and Jefferson added double doubles. Lin finished the night with 12 points 4 boards and 4 assists.

Hornets were starting to rattle the hawks late. Can they put it together tonight and get a victory in their home opener?

Same Projected lineups

Hornets
PG -- Kemba Walker
SG -- Nic Batum
SF -- PJ Hairston
PF -- Marvin Williams
C -- Al Jefferson


Hawks
PG -- Jeff Teague
SG -- Daniel Schroder
SF -- Kent Bazemore
PF -- Paul Millsap
C - Al Horford

Could be the same result as Friday night. Close but lose.

Free League pass, you can watch it with CHA commentators.

Also, Hawes and Zeller are useless day.

I don't get it, why do they keep doubling Lin every chance they get?

Do they find it's easy to get a TO from Lin if they do that? Lin really needs to work on how to pass out quickly when double teams get to him. I don't see them double team on Walker as much.

Man, Lin is not being used a lot by Cliff, but I could see the reason why as he is being trapped like crazy and also a little too timid to shoot when he is open.

I say Lin just don't over think too much, be a little aggressive be a little unselfish and try to limit the TO by pass it out early on if getting trapped.

Yes, if they can't take this one, it's very hard for the next several ones. Bulls at home, then deadly TX trip versus Mavericks and Spurs.

Lin really didn't earn the trust in the coach in this game. I guess if we are the coach, due to the reason, we might be a little hesitant to insert Lin as well. Lin is alright just really have to play smart and just be fearless and aggressive.
