Appreciate these updates, Smoket!

Good idea to rest Lin and give him a few night's rest before new year.

Jeremy in his business suit watching the game by the court side.

The Charlotte Hornets would have won if Jeremy had played cos he was sporting his Mohawk hairdo again.

the mohawk and the suit don't go well together.

Do we know how long Lin will be out?

I'm NOT EXAGGERATING when I said the Hornets would have won if Jeremy had played.

The Hornets played PRETTY BAD DEFENSE in this game; they fell to double-digits behind very soon into the game; and every time when they managed to crawl back to just 5 points, 3 points or 1 points behind, they just let LA Clippers galloped away with another 5 ~ 0 run or 7 ~ 0 run. Of all the players, Jeremy Lamb, in particular, SUX in defense, and made both JJ Reddick (26 points at 8/14 FG% 5/6 3-pointer% 5/5 FT%) and Austin Rivers (22 points at 7/11 FG% 4/6 3-pointer% 4/4 FT%) played like ALL STARS !!!

And Head Coach Steve Clifford was BITTERLY DISAPPOINTED with the team's performance and chewed them out afterwards in the locker room.

Clifford gave a statement and left. He was not happy #Hornets.

Clifford, "If our expectations of ourselves is going to be that low, then we're never going to be the team we need to be," #Hornets.

Clifford, "But everyone has to confront the facts and realize they have to have career years and do things they've never done," #Hornets.

Clifford, "It starts with an approach, intensity and demanding of yourself, when that changes we'll start to play better," #Hornets.

And the mood in the locker room is dead silence, I'm sure Clifford chewed them out pretty good #Hornets.

Kemba Walker knows what the problem is, they win when they play great defense and when they don't they lose. I agree #Hornets.
