Want Two Tickets to the sold out Game 3 vs. LA? We got ’em

Published: April 15, 2011

All you got to do to win this is tell us how the Hornets will beat the Lakers in Round One. Write a journal (serious or humorous) about how the Hornets can take down the two-time defending champions. We are looking for creativity, passion, and overall brilliance from our winning piece. No minimum, no maximum. Just Bring It. Be Awesome. Make us say, “Oh, Hell Yeah.” Okay, enough WWE references, you get the picture. Deadline ends at 2:00 CST on Sunday, right before Game 1 begins. Good luck!

    Our campaign was above expectations. I’m happy with what the Hornets held the regular season. Ok, they lost some games we should not (remember Wolves?). However, we also won some games that nobody expected would win (remember Heat?). Then, the performance was good. Mostly because Chris Paul played the worst season in his career. Our misfortune was to have the Lakers ahead. Ok, this is the NBA. Let’s play!

    We will win by working together!

    In all seriousness, I like the topic. Let’s get the strategy going. Thinking caps.

    To quote Transformers: The Movie, the cartoon movie, not this recent patience, a little patience and alot of luck.

    Hello to all. It’s been a while.. well, this is an interesting topic. Interesting in the fact that I have been called Crazy by some of my peers for actually thinking the Hornets will win this series. maybe so, but here’s what I’m thinking. First and foremost, no other team has been playing as bad as us of late other than the lakers. Yet i do believe our bad play has been due to complacency. After we locked up our playoff spot the focus for the remainder of season was to get thru injury free. Now on the COURT.. I believe it would be a gd move to start Mbenga and Okafor together.. WHAT?!! you say. Mbenga brings enough size and footwork to match up on a hurt Bynum with decent weakside defense. He isn’t great offensively but he can scrap enough for decent contribution. Just need the center position (Mbenga,Gray,Okafor,Smith) to eat up minutes.I then believe Okafor would hold his own againast Gasol. Ariza was bought here for his perimeter DEFENSE and Championship pedigree.No one will stop Kobe, but he has gotten up there a litttle in age. for whatever that’s worth.It is what it is and Trevor will do an admirable job on him. The Combination of Belli, Greene and Jack must have consistency. Sprinkle in Landry with that trio and the Hornets bench can DOMINATE the Lakers bench. Here is the Key… Chris Paul MUST go into the Booth and become CP3! He has helped as much as anyone else with the uncertainty of his future here. Well Chris, you have asked to be in this situation “playoffs” so HERE you geaux. Superstars are supposed to shine this time of year. Even if not 100%, a 90% CP3 should DOMINATE Derrick Fisher therefore cancelling out anything kobe puts up and getting the other guys involved at the same time. I DO believe that Chris has been saving himself for playoffs, especially after witnessing what happened to D West. Important for Landry to avg 16pg… Hornets in 6!!!!!!!!

    I’m confused. This game appears to be faaaar from sold out, but you’re not the first person I’ve heard say that. There are hundreds of game 3 tickets for sale on ticketmaster. Am I missing something?

      A sellout means like 17250 tickets were sold. There would still be 1250 tickets available once it ‘sells out’.

      It’s a confusing term. It’s industry-wide, not an NBA or New Orleans thing.

      There are likely few pairs left, as this is a driver in the definition for sellout.

    OK Hornets, the Lakers won the game but (of course) got help from the refs. That’s not an excuse though. You missed too many FTs and looked to the refs too much. The key to this game is to keep a body on those big men and if they get it in the post, give them the shot over your outstretched hand but don’t allow them to get to the rim. Also, NO OFFENSIVE REBOUNDS ALLOWED. Lets see if Kobe can win a game by himself.
