Rockets almost got Linned in the 4th Quarter, but sent the hornets home packing.
Hornets now face a possible 3 game losing streak as they host the Boston Celtics, 7 PM
ET @ Time Warner Cable Arena.


Hornets needed a win on monday, as they lost to the wizards, and are free falling down the Eastern conference standings. Hornets played a close game 1st half, as they were only down by a point at half time. The Rockets came into the second half on a mission go on an 8-0, run. but the hornets came back and took the lead with 2 minutes to go. The game would start to lean toward the rockets favor, and they would Rockets then mount a run to take the lead for good with 30 seconds to go and won 102-95.

Kemba Walker led the Hornets with 14 points, with Kaminsky and Williams adding 12 apiece Lin couldn't do much the first half, as he had 3 fouls in 3 minutes. But exploded for 10 points in the 4th Q, finishing with 13 points and 5 assists.

The Hornets now march home to face the Celtics who Beat Timberwolves on Monday 113-99. This will be the 2nd match up this season, but the Celtics managed the hornets easily last time. will they continue the Hornets streak into the Christmast holiday? or will the Hornets get a W for X-mas?

Lin is subbed in early in this game... at the 8 minute mark.

Hawes is a joke right now... doesn't try to get rebounds, can't catch, can't shoot.

Lin gets turnover because Hawes can't catch.

Hornets lost by 12... but at least Lin was +4 rating... and he played against mostly the starters.

Hornets looked really sloppy and played with very little chemistry. Settled too much on outside shots and didn't move off the ball very well. Hopefully they can get back to what they were doing before...
