NO TIME TO CELEBRATE after pulling off one of their biggest wins of the season over San Antonio Spurs as Charlotte Hornets started a 4-game road trip, and a back-to-back against Brooklyn Nets.

That win over San Antonio Spurs got to be a morale boosting one after losing carelessly over Denver Nuggets at home. Charlotte (40-30) trailed 30-7 early in the second quarter before rallying back for a stunning 91-88 victory over San Antonio Spurs which must have thought they had already pocketed their 60th win of the season after leading by over 20 points at end of 1Q.

With the win over San Antonio Spurs, Charlotte Hornets now only trails the Miami Heat and Atlanta Hawks by one-half game in the Southeast Division.
They had won 7 of 9 on the road and its 10-2 record this month matches Golden State for the NBA's best.

But they cannot get too complacent as 9 of their final 12 games will be away from Charlotte, and they had been 0 ~ 6 in road games against Brooklyn Nets.

So can they start another winning streak, and further closing up the gap between them and Heats and Hawks, or they will stumble again to the Nets ???

Possible line up

Brooklyn Nets

Point Guard: Donald Sloan
Shooting Guard: Wayne Ellington
Small Forward: Bojan Bogdanovic
Power Forward: Thaddeus Young
Centre: Brook Lopez

Charlotte Hornets

Point Guard: Kemba Walker
Shooting Guard: Courtney Lee
Small Forward: Nicolas Batum
Power Forward:Marvin Williams
Centre: Cody Zeller

Lin had another big game. 21 points. 9 points in the 4th quarter. Lin has been shooting well the past three games. He shot 8-12 in this game.

it's just Lin being Lin

how he typically operates is he goes into slump. has an offensive outburst one day

then feeds off it for the next 2-3 weeks. then slumps etc

dude is capable of going off at any time. but his condition varies and his game is up and down and just when you want to kick him in the nuts he goes off
