Home winning keeps on rolling, as the Hornets Host the Timberwolves, 7PM ET @ Time Warner cable arena

Last meeting, Hornets took the victory with balanced scoring, and strong bench play in November. Lin led with 19 points, Lamb 18, and Batum 17, in that november meeting.
Will the wolves get their revenge tonight, or will the home town steam roller keep on rolling?

SG -- Courtney Lee

Interesting game. hornets Hold off the Timberwolves 108-103.

Kemba with 34, had a stretch 3 straight 3 pointers.

Lin again doesn't shoot well from the field, but iced 4 free throws to keep the game out of reach for the Wolves. I thought Lin got knocked around a bit tonight. some fouls he should have gotten, where he didn't get. but there were 1-2 plays where he got away with a foul.
finishes.
Minutes 22:54
9 Points on 1-8 shooting, 1-4 from 3 pointers, 6-6 from the line.
5 rebounds
2 assists
1 Foul
1 Steal
3 TO
+14 +/-

played a solid role when the hornets got the leads

Courtney Lee still hasn't scored more than 9 points in a game as a Hornet yet...

Maybe it's bias, but I find that blockers/defenders swing harder on Lin. I watch the games and defenders don't go at Kemba the same way. They tend to respect Kemba's air space more.
