Should be a great atmosphere at the Hive for this one. It's been pretty loud in there numerous times this season, but I'm betting tonight will take the cake. I can only imagine the boos that will rain down on Jason Kidd when he's introduced. Dude will be wishing he got suspended.
So let's go, Hornets. One more win and we'll get ready for Round 2. Ding ding.
[UPDATE] Hornets survive a late run by the Mavs to win Game 5, 99-94. Second round, here we come. Who do we have to beat next?
