An EXTREMELY IMPORTANT WIN over another playoff contender, the Indiana Pacers.

Prior to this game, Indiana Pacers (31W26L) were 5th placed; Chicago Bulls (30W26L) were 6th placed; Atlanta Hawks (31W27L) were 7th placed; Charlotte Hornets (29W27L) were 8th.

As Atlanta Hawks thrashed Chicago Bulls 103 ~ 88 today, and Charlotte Hornets edged Indiana Pacers 96 ~ 95, the ranking became:

5th Atlanta Hawks 32W27L
6th Indiana Pacers 31W27L
7th Charlotte Hornets 30W27L
8th Chicago Bulls 30W27L


So Charlotte Hornets just 1 game behind Atlanta Hawks and 0.5 game behind Indiana Pacers !!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

MORE photos of Jeremy in action during this hard-earned win.

Courtney Lee got the most minutes of any player in this game. Its clear he's going to get more minutes than what PJ Hairston was getting. That means less playing time for Lin and Lamb.

I don't ink he looks completely comfortable out there, and that Clifford is giving him a ton of minutes to try to get him more comfortable so that he's ready for the playoffs.
