Perspective

So, I'm all over yesterday's little rant. I've since put things in perspective and decided if someone had told to me two weeks ago that the Hornets would start the season with a 4-3 record, I probably would have been ok with it. 

That said, the Hornets are still playing crap right now, and that needs to change. The 1-5 Bobcats pay them a visit in OKC tomorrow, a game the Hornets absolutely must and should win.

Anyways, before we get too far ahead of ourselves, here's a few things worth mentioning about the Clippers game…

  • Linkage: box | recap | video | photos.
  • As somebody mentioned in the comments yesterday, the Hornets' last meeting with the Clippers didn't go to well either, losing 89-67, including that NBA-record low 16 points in the second half.

    Sounds like the Clips have our number.

  • More linkage: ClipperBlog.com and ClipsNation.com both have reports on the game.
  • Worst paragraph ever from the AP report on the game:

    New Orleans had 12 turnovers in the first quarter — including two shot-clock violations 47 seconds apart. Reserve forward Cedric Simmons coughed up the ball three times during a span of 70 seconds after replacing Tyson Chandler, who picked up two fouls in the first 6½ minutes.

  • Linton Johnson didn't play aginst the Clippers, and appears to have taken up residence in JR Smith's old house. Said Byron Scott post-game:

    "He's just not doing the things I want — and not listening. Simple. I told him a few things, and he continues to makes the same mistakes, he won't play. Mostly from an offensive standpoint."

  • After his 1-of-6 performance yesterday, Rasual Butler is now 2-of-15 from the field in the last four games. Blind amputees have shot better.
  • Tyson Chandler got his Mohawk redone. I still have no idea why that word is capitalized.
  • This picture rocks.

Remember how it was last Monday, when the Hornets and Saints were both coming off big wins? If that ever happens again, we'll build some kind of time-freezing gizmo and just stay in that moment. Or we could build some kind of travel-back-in-time gizmo now, you know, to go back and relive that moment.

Whichever is easiest.
