The Hornets will try jump out to a 2-0 series lead when they host the Mavericks at the New Orleans Arena this evening. Dallas will be out for revenge after Chris Paul punked 'em with 35 points and 10 assists in his Playoff debut on Saturday, leading New Orleans to a 104-92 victory.

Chris Paul takes it to the rack in Game 1

Some info before the fit hits the shan…

Game Time: 6:00pm Central.

TV: TNT nationwide.

Radio: KMEZ 102.9 FM in New Orleans and WIBR 1300-AM in Baton Rouge.

Linkage:

Make no mistake: this game is massive. Win, and we take a commanding lead in the series with some nice momentum as we head to Dallas. Lose, and we have to face this possibility: the Hornets could drop the next two on the road, meaning by the time the series swings back to New Orleans we could be on the brink of elimination

Gotta love the Playoffs.

Comments welcome as always. I'd especially appreciate if someone could make note of any interesting or controversial commentary from the TNT broadcast. I'll be at the Arena so I'll miss all the TV stuff.

Alright, I'm done. Game 2 is here. Kick ass, Hornets.

[UPDATE] The Hornets dominate, take Game 2, 127-103.
