Game Day Open Thread: Game 6 – Hornets @ Spurs

Alright, so we've got Game 6 in San Antonio tonight. The Spurs need the win to stay alive and force a deciding Game 7 on Monday. Victory for the Hornets would put us in the Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history. Tyson Chandler and David West are apparently healthy enough to lace 'em up and give us good minutes, so hopefully we'll put an end to the road woes and advance to the happy times tonight.

Chandler and West challenge Tony Parker

Stuff to know…

Game Time: 8:00pm Central.

TV: ESPN nationwide.

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


I'm feeling strangely confident ahead of this one, and methinks I've finally figured out why. You see, pretty much nobody expects the Hornets to win tonight, just like nobody expected us to win the Southwest division, nobody expected David West to be an All-Star, nobody expected Chris Paul to be an MVP candidate, nobody expected Byron Scott to be Coach of the Year, and nobody expected the Hornets to knock off the Mavericks in the first round.

So expect the unexpected, and know that we got this.

[UPDATE] Or maybe we don't got this. Another blow out win for the home team, as the Hornets fall, 99-80. Game 7 is in New Orleans on Monday.
