Hornets look to roll the Heat in a nother division matchup 7PM ET @ Time Warner Arena

Hornets upset the Cavaliers 106-97 .
Lin in 32 minutes scored 24 on 7-13, 8 assists and 5 boards.

Probable Starters as per media notes.
PG -- Lin
SG -- Batum
SF -- Kidd-Gilchrist
PF -- Williams
C -- Zeller

Jefferson is the only one OUT
Walker - is officially Questionable but he's playing tonight.

Most likely Will be walker/Batum starting
but won't be surprised if Walker/Lin tonight.

Heat
PG -- Dragic
SG -- Wade
SF -- Deng
PF -- Bosh
C -- Stoudemire

Whiteside is back though, thought he came off the bench in the last game, he may start tonight.

Lin just can't seem to put together two good games together back-to-back.

Well, the REASON was SIMPLE !!!

He was in TOTAL CONTROLOF THE BALL
in the game vs Cleveland Cavaliers, but in this game, Kemba Walker had returned, and Jeremy lost his starting role, and had his role changed to back-up point guard, then shooting guard.....

And due to match up, he had to penetrate more to create opportunities for his team mates, or took the shots himself. But it so happened, Hassan Whiteside played brilliantly in defense from the bench to score a triple-double (10 points/10 rebounds/10 block shots).
Jeremy must have been blocked 2 to 3 times by Whiteside in this game.

And the game was lost in the last minute due to 2 CRITICAL TURNOVERS from Kemba Walker.

Yeah, thought kemba had the right idea of passing it to Batum, only to have him cough up the ball.

Hate to say it but throughout the season, with the game on the line, they always put the ball in kemba's hands. I have yet to see anything good come out of it yet.
