Game Preview

Matchup: Hornets(8-0) @ Mavericks(6-2)
Off Efficiency: Hornets 106.9(7th), Mavericks 105.2(11th)
Def Efficiency: Hornets 95.3(1st), Mavericks 97.1(3rd)

Game banner provided by the amazing Dariusz Ejkiewicz.

Two defensive juggernauts clash tonight as the Hornets visit Dallas for a Southwestern Conference showdown.  To date, the Mavericks defensive numbers indicate two things:  Their wing defense is somewhat slow-footed, but their length(read: Tyson Chandler) – lets them contest shots even if they are beaten.  As a result, while the Mavericks are one of the 5 worst teams at keeping other teams from taking shots at the rim and in the paint, they are also one of the league best at making people miss those shots.   That means that the close range shots will be there for our driving guards, it’ll be up to them to take advantage.

On the flip side, Dallas takes a lot of jumpers – low efficiency jumpers – but hits them at a solid clip behind Terry and Nowitzki.  That could make this team dangerous as the Hornets want their opponents to be taking those shots.

Injuries:

Hornets: None
Mavericks: Caron Butler is day to day with back spasms.  He had been the starting SF, so if he comes back, he may push Marion to the bench.

Positional Analysis

PG: Chris Paul v Jason Kidd
Advantage: Hornets
Kidd has been having a bit of an off year.  Over the past couple seasons, he had developed a deadly three-point shot and continued to rebound the ball like few point guards can.  This year, his rebounding numbers are way down, and his three point shot is falling at an average rate.  Yes, he can still generate easy shots in the open floor, but other than as a spot up shooter, he’s pretty ordinary now.  Chris Paul isn’t ordinary.

SG: Marco Belinelli v DeShawn Stevenson
Advantage: Hornets
Stevenson has been playing very well for the Mavericks, knocking down his open shots, and playing an important role as a tough wing defender for 20 minutes a game.  Here’s the rub, however, he’s been a terrible shooter for three straight seasons prior to this one.  Somehow, I don’t think his shooting efficiency(he’s the second most efficienct scorer on the Mavs) will continue.  Marco’s efficiency should continue.

SF: Trevor Ariza v Shawn Marion
Advantage: Even
Marion rebounds well, runs the floor well, and defends adequately.  His three point shot has deserted him, but he can still finish inside after cutting and receiving bounce passes from Kidd.  Ariza’s defense is superior, and don’t look at his shooting percentages and dismiss him.  He draws a reasonable numbe of free throws, and the number of threes he does manage to hit keeps his points per shot at least respectable.

PF: David West v Dirk Nowitzki
Advantage: Mavericks
West plays Nowitzki very well, since Nowitzki’s only advantage on him is his height, but Nowitzki does typically out play him by a few points and rebounds every game.   Both are proving to be very efficient this season.  It should be a good battle.

C: Emeka Okafor v Tyson Chandler
Advantage: Even
Okafor has been playing very, very well, but Chandler is also having a tremendous impact on the Mavs.  As always, he takes few shots, but he always generates a ton of points from them because they are dunks.  He rebounds very well, defends the paint better than most centers in the league, and because the Mavs are somewhat deep, doesn’t have to play long minutes.  These two guys will battle hard tonight.  (On a side note, I’m glad to see Chandler healthy again.  I just wish he was healthy somewhere other than in Dallas)

Bench
Mavericks: Jason Terry, Jose Juan Barea, Brendan Hayward, Brian Cardinal
Hornets: Willie Green, Jerryd Bayless, Jason Smith, Thornokavoic, Pondexter
Advantage: Mavericks
Jason Terry is a phenomenal scorer, and Jose Juan Barea plays very well for all his physical limitations.  I almost made this even, because Brendan Hayward has been awful this year and Jason Smith hasn’t, but I do think Terry more than counters that deficiency.

Enjoy the Game.  Talk it up!

Oh, and there’s a new Journal entry from 42 you should read, and don’t forget about chatting about the Hornets in our new Forum, things are starting to pick up there!

Also, check out the NBA 2K11 sim. The rosters update every day, and the Hornets are finally getting some respect on that game. Prior to the season started, they were ranked 24th overall according to the game- now they are up to 12th!!!

Update– Joe will be on ESPN’s Daily Dime Chat throughout the game, so come over and represent the Hornets fan base.

    I don’t want to look too far ahead, but if the Hornets win this game then 12-0 is a real possibility. I love the way the Hornets match up against Dallas and the only guy who I don’t think we have an answer for is Jason Terry, unless the Hornets put Paul on him.

    This game will come down to rebounding IMO. I don’t expect the Hornets to get many offensive rebounds, and I am fine with that, but they have to crash the defensive boards all game. Less than 10 offensive rebounds for Dallas and I think the Hornets can control this game.

    I agree with all of this, except for your analysis of the shooting guards, which is pretty tenuous. It might make sense as an analysis of their long-term prospects, but not for tonight’s game. I would call it even, or give Dallas an edge (DeShawn is, or at least can be, at much better defender).

    I guess Bayless and Green get a real test tonight vs. Jet.

    If Butler comes back tonight hopefully it’ll take him a few games to get back into any kind of rhythm. Haha.

    Trevor Ariza is better than Shawn Marion. At this stage in both careers, Ariza’s offense & defense is better than Marion’s. Ariza can be quiet for spurts on the court, but Shawn Marion will go for half a game without us hearing his name.

    Am I the only one who likes to see how BAD NBA2k11 projections are for each Hornets game? I know they’re just projections but it’s still pretty funny!

    Something I’d like to add: BOTH the Mavs losses were at HOME. (against MEM & DEN) Just throwin it out there

      For those of us without it, what does NBA2k11 say for this matchup?

        Thanks for the feedback guys- I stopped doing the NBA 2K11 sims because I didn’t think people liked them.

        I will run it now and post it up and continue it for the season.

        Thanks again for the feedback, and always let us know the things you like and/or the things we can improve on- this is your site as much as ours.

    also id give ariza the slight advantage on marion although its close

    These two games against Dallas struck me as a likely point for our unbeaten streak to come to an end. Even a split would be a more than credible result, although I welcome the Hornets to prove my pessimism wrong.

    Who would have thought we’d go from “how many minutes will Thornton get?” to “will he get on the court?” to “will he make the playing roster?”. Even if he’s active, I’m not counting on much playing time unless he simply *astounds* when put on the court.

    2K11 Sim is up!!!

    Hornets are finally getting a little respect on that game, as the rosters (and attributes of each player) are updated every day.

    That said, they still have Jason Smith as a 52. They must not be watching J Smitty.

    • ur_gmas_daughter

    96-91 Hornets. That’s my random prediction for the week.

    Im thinking mavs are gna be in some foul trouble especially with Cp3 being Cp3 and Bayless’ last two games Ft’s could well win us this game….bed for me though hope to wake up and wake up my household by shouting ‘yes’ following our last 8 games lol Geaux Hornets ;P

    • JCS

      November 15, 2010 at 8:01 pm

      We need to trade Gray and Peja for that to happen. All the back up centers on ATL are available in 2K11.

      • Jake

        November 15, 2010 at 8:03 pm

        Trading gray and peja for a big would be more than acceptable. Might be time to start a new franchise…

        Jason Thompson is being shopped by the Kings. Have I ever mentioned Jason Thompson before? haha

      • JCS

        November 15, 2010 at 8:51 pm

        Well that makes no sense. If Kings trade Jason Thompson, then they’ll break up their big 3.

    November 15, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    I was wondering the same thing bee…and whats with the mavs making every damn shot?? theyll cool off and well heat up. not bad to be just 5 down. CP3 for 30pts, 13 asts, and 7 rebs

  44. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    Don’t let Terry come in there with that. Other Hornets besides Paul need to do better. A whole lot better. Nice block by Emeka. Nice save by Jason.

  45. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    10 points for CP.

  46. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    Hornets have been good at not giving up 3 pointers. Let’s hope it continues tonight. Terry and Stevenson both just got good looks but fortunately for us they didn’t knock them down.

  47. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    Emeka was 2-7 in that first quarter. Come on man. Throw it down. Ariza hasn’t attempted to score. Belinelli 0-2. West 1-4.

    Rick Carlisle with the tech.

    Maybe we should just let Peja expire this year……haha

    Say, that one guy Jason Thompson is being shopped by the Kings. I definitely haven’t mentioned him before…..hmmm he’ll play backup C and PF so Mbenga doesn’t have to.

    I think CP might be the best player on Earth.

    Come on man. Good timeout Monty.

  74. Michael McNamara

    November 15, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    Oh thank CP3 for CP3- guy might keep us undefeated by himself.

    Chandler is really giving West problems. In years past Dallas never had anyone who could cover West, but TC gives them a good option. Thankfully Terry has missed a bunch of open jumpers and CP3 is waiting to take over.

    Need Belinelli to hit some open shots in the 2nd half to pull away. Oh, and whoever Cardinal is covering- TAKE IT TO THE RACK!

    halftime report from himynameis-

    seriously marcus inactive again …. would love to see him play especially since willie and bayless are not doing a whole heck of a lot offensively besides that 3 from willie… also peja had the stroke going but that air ball was 10 feet over albeit haywood was runnning after him… chris is being a little lackadasical on some passes but he is keeping us in it with d west starting very slow and emeka too but his block wassss huuuuuuugeeeeee… love the efffort plays from ariza and smith keep it up they wont turn the ball over so much second half we need to play better

  77. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 8:54 pm

    November 15, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    We are very close to separating from these jokers. We need to kick that door open. 4 on Tyson? That would help. Yup.

    3 on Chris, though.

    I’d like to be up 12 at the end of 3. Hopefully, that will be enough and will give us some rest.

  88. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    Yeah 42, Chris has 3 and needs to be careful.

    cheap foul chris.

    November 15, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    3 consecutive fouls on Hornets. Come on now. Belinelli needs to hit that.

    Now another foul on a Hornet. SMH.

  94. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    Play like an All-Star West! Come on.

    Dallas is in the penalty now. Great. SMH.

    Ok, Jerryd. Now’s the time for more than your entire frontal bone to shine.

    These fouls are killing us.

    5 point game now when it was just 10 a minute ago.

  97. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    Good foul on Dirk. Wish Mek would’ve finished that though. We need all the points we can get. LOL!

  98. MaxALM

    November 15, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    The refs just won’t let this game see any type of fluidity. Frustrating.

  99. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    Stay on the shooters Hornets! Don’t let Terry and Stevenson get good looks.

    Bayless took it to the rim in the battle of the balds.

  101. 42

    This one goes to 11.

  102. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Nice West. LET’S GEAUX HORNETS!!!

  103. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    Bayless can’t let Kidd get that deep in there for that.

  104. Michael McNamara

    November 15, 2010 at 9:20 pm

    Ah, I missed CP3 yelling at West for bad defense. I finally got to see it again tonight. Hopefully Monty sits next to him on the flight and reminds him how to play pick and roll defense. He just watched Terry go by for an open jumper off the pick. C’mon West!

  105. 42

    November 15, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    Peja heads!

  106. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    OT:Michael Vick is going OFF!

    PEJA!!!!

  107. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Come on Jason. Get you a couple of shot in. Oh Lord. Jason fouls Dirk now. I know CP is itching to get back in.

  108. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    Offensive foul on Bayless. Lord have mercy. Come on Hornets!

  109. Michael McNamara

    November 15, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    I am searching for all the people who killed me for putting Peja at #8- where are you???

    Still think Mbenga or Bayless is more valuable?

    Every time I watch a game against the Mavs in Dallas I wonder to myself how out of it the fans in the arena must be to make it necessary to remind them to chant “Lets Go Mavs” everytime their team has the ball….

  111. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    Meka with that big arse block! LOL!!

    Bayless with the jumper! LET’S GEAUX!!

  112. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:30 pm

    Good timeout Monty. We’ve given up too many 3’s in this game already.

    Willie G. for 3!!!

    • Michael McNamara

      November 15, 2010 at 9:36 pm

      That’s why he was #4- he comes in to slow down Terry (Fire Extinguisher) and he hits a big shot at the shot clock buzzer when ALL the momentum was on Mavs side.

      • 42

        November 15, 2010 at 9:43 pm

        I just got a mental flash of Winston baring in with a fire extinguisher and saving the rest of the Ghostbusters (maybe not Peter) in an all too flat dramatic moment.

        I’m not knocking Willy J. Green; I just like sharing when the Ghostbusters pop into my head.

  116. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    Willie and Peja with back to back 3’s!!!!!!!!!!!

  117. JCS

    November 15, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    Aaron Gray sticks out his hand to give Jason Smith a hi five and Jason leaves him hanging. Ha!

  118. pinoyballah

    November 15, 2010 at 9:36 pm

  121. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    Ya’ll can’t leave Kidd open like that! His dumb arse can hit a wide open shot. LOL!

  122. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    PEJA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  123. QueenBee

  124. pinoyballah

    November 15, 2010 at 9:42 pm

    whats up with the 3 point shooting contest?

  125. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    Let’s capitalize off of winning that tip.

  126. QueenBee

    November 15, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    West with 5 fouls. Has to sit now.

  127. 42

    November 15, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    The threes and fouls . . . make them step up for a 2.

    Be careful Hornets. Chris is so damn scrappy!

  129. QueenBee

    Trevor’s looks were good. Just didn’t hit em. Damn. I hate feeling like this about games. It’s just a game right? Heart palpitations and stuff. Goodness gracious.

    • Bug Marley

      November 15, 2010 at 10:12 pm

      Same here Queen. Had to skip lunch for the endgame too. LOL.

      Paul in foul trouble, on the road, Jason Terry exploding near the end and we still had a legit shot of going 9-0. We’ll get ’em next time.

    No shame in losing to Dallas on the road. We’ll get them back on Wednesday.

    Let me guess (I say not guessing at all)- Ryan must be writing the recap?

  154. thechosenuno

    November 15, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    -sigh-

    The D kept us in the game, and we gave up too many free looks in the 4th quarter to let them rally.

    -sigh-

    DAMN we lost here comes the CP3 trade rumors hahahah J/P

    November 15, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    ahhhhhhhhhhhh man marcus would of hit one of those shots and faked the foul and gotten us a 4 point play hahaha im messing but good game wish we called our 20 sec timeout rather than giving it to emeka but i wasnt expecting an 82-0 season anyway

  160. peronas

    November 15, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    If we get them back on Wed I’ll be happy…

  161. Zwie

    November 15, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    you are Exactly right steven..we had one more time out… i wish ariza would have known that.

  162. Jake

    November 15, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    The looks were there(except for Okafor). They just didn’t fall. Last season they wouldn’t have been there at all.

    • nikkoewan

      November 15, 2010 at 10:24 pm

      + 1 🙂

  163. nikkoewan

    November 15, 2010 at 10:21 pm

    guys, those were good lucks by Ariza. 2 good lucks. We were lucky to get 1, impossible to get 2, but we did. Gotta play the percentages. Great fight, great fight. Hornets represent!

  164. pinoyballah

    November 15, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    • thechosenuno

      November 15, 2010 at 10:29 pm

      If we hadn’t left 8 points at the freethrow line, we would have whoooped them tonight!

      • QueenBee

        November 15, 2010 at 10:38 pm

        That is very true. Too many missed free throws.

    • nikkoewan

      November 15, 2010 at 10:31 pm

      yeah. im expecting a monster game from our 3 all stars: Paul, West, Okafor. + 15

  166. Jake

    November 15, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    It”ll be telling to see how both the players and coaches respond. Will CP3 and company come out fired up to get revenge? Is Monty going to look at film and make the correct adjustments? Gonna be a yes to both of those.

    • QueenBee

      November 15, 2010 at 10:55 pm

      I agee Jake. Yes to both of those.

    Man I only get 2 Hornets games per season down here and after 3 of them since the last season I’ve yet to see them win. I wasn’t expecting to see a win on the 2 games last season but I really hoped they won and remained undefeated while I was attending tonight.
