    I just noticed, Rodney Stuckey is shooting 34% from 3 for the season.

    Pacers are 4.5 games back of Toronto for home court in the first round and still play them 3 times before the end of the season (2 road,1 home) and after looking at both of our schedules they are both favorable. But they are also playing without Kyle Lowry until the playoffs and we are starting to play aspiring ball. I believe home court is within reach and would love nothing more than to play either Toronto or Atlanta in the first round. Especially with home court advantage. I would even go as far as we would be favored in any match-up (outside of Wash, Boston, And Clev) in the playoffs even if we don't get home court. None of those teams have a player as good as Playoff PG. There is only one team in the east who does imo.

    I really wish Nate wouldn't draw up so many plays where CJ's shooting off a screen unless it's a decoy. Shooting off of screens are one of the worst parts of his offensive game.

    Where do the Hornets go from this season? Clifford is certainly gone. Quietly they have to be one of the most disappointing teams of this season no?

    And yet we still can't beat them apparently.

    I don't know if I see them as disappointing. I think they overachieved in previous years.

    Their front office is incompetent. Their best big man is Cody Zeller. I mean, outside of Walker and Batum, how many of those players start on the majority of NBA teams? MAYBE MKG as a 5th option, defensive role player?

    I mean however you wanna slice it or divy the blame, they were 48-34 last year and they're 27-35 now and just 2 months ago they were the 2nd hottest team in the East and someone (forget who, but someone who is an idiot king) wrote an article about how Kemba had become Steph Curry East. You also had the great debate on here sometime in early december about if people would rather have Kemba or PG haha

    Not sure why you're hating on Kemba, he's far from the reason why they're struggling.

    He's obviously not Steph level, but he's easily top 6 or 7 PG in the league.

    The loss of Lin and Lee is really hurting their backcourt production. The fact that Kemba is able to still get it done in spite of not having much help in the backcourt is impressive... Least to me lol

    Regardless of what they did last year or even earlier this year, to me, that was overachieving.

    Their roster is not that good at all.

    What has he done that is so horrible? Or is it mostly because his name is not Frank Vogel?

    Besides Kemba they have no one who can score. They thought Batum would be able to provide an offensive punch, but he is pretty mediocre.

    Yea, his FG% has been bad, he does help out in other ways though. Still averaging 6 APG which is outstanding for a wing.

    This is the type of game we just have to find ways to win now for the rest of the year.

    On the road. Against a team that we match up with poorly somehow, despite their bad record.

    These are the games we were losing early on that have kept us hovering around 500. Now is the time to clamp down and win them.

    He is a horrible shooter of threes when on the move. Now no player will shoot as well when moving but for CJ I suspect it is really bad

    This "Players Only" thing is the worst television I've ever seen. I hope this isn't going on in the playoffs. Just horrible.

    Wow, hope that performance of the national anthem is the level the Hornets play at. In that case not much to be worried about!
    Yay, we're going back to the playoffs! I hope

    The Pacers should make an active effort to get Myles Turner going. It doesn't matter if we make the playoffs if his slump continues.

    Just came here to say this. I don't mind them shooting the **** before the game, but you need a real play by play guy.

    Derek Fisher said Myles had the best individual workout for the Knicks the year he came out. Interesting.

    I think we lead the league in guys that jump in the air with no where to go.
