So 6 MORE games to go before the wrap-up of the 2015~16 regular season !!!

The competition for 3rd~6th position of Eastern Conference is STILL AS TIGHT AS EVER SEEN !!!


After their loss in Cleveland, Charlotte Hornets (44W 32L) travelled to Toronto to play the first of a back-to-back against 2nd placed Toronto Raptors before flying to New York to play against New York Knicks.

As it stands now, even though Charlotte Hornets had already clinched a playoff spot, the chance for them to surpass Atlanta Hawks and Miami Heat to win the divisional title of Southeast Division, as well as winning home court advantage (i.e. finishing either 3rd or 4th in Eastern Conference) is getting
SLIMMER.

However since the 4 teams (Atlanta Hawks (45W 32L), Boston Celtics (45W 32L), Miami Heat (44W 32L) and Charlotte Hornets (44W 32L)) are VIRTUALLY INSEPARABLE, so an extyra win or an extra loss will eventually decide the final position.

So the next 2 games are going to be important. Can Charlotte Hornets pull out some small miracles first in Toronto, or they're going to lose again and be left behind in the #6 spot ??


Possible line up

Cleveland Cavaliers

Point Guard: Kyle Lowry
Shooting Guard: Norman Powell
Small Forward: DeMar DeRozen
Power Forward: Luis Scola
Centre: Jonas Valanciunas

Charlotte Hornets

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

Any news on whether Al Jefferson will play or not? Definitely a big difference with the second unit regarding chemistry with Lin...Lin great with Al, ok with Frank, but definitely has chemistry issues playing with Hawes. Having Jefferson there will be important.

I'm surprised Lin and Zeller isn't playing together more.

Mostly because Zeller is playing with the starting unit and Lin is supposed to run the 2nd unit. They did share some court time (and that led to one of Lin's turnovers where Zeller wasn't expecting a pass).

Hornets are getting killed... but at least Lin looks to be the top player for the Hornets.

YEAH TOO LITTLE TOO LATE for Hornets' 4Q rally. They eventually went down 90 ~ 96 !!!

Jeremy did well to be top scorer and top assist provider for the team: 21 points (5/11 FG% 4/6 3-poiner% 7/8 FT%), 4 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 steal, 4 fouls and 3 turnovers in 40 minutes of action.
