Charlotte Hornets @ New Orleans Pelicans Open Thread

Published: November 4, 2014

The New Orleans Pelicans host the Charlotte Hornets in a battle that proves to be much more interesting than a collision of 1-2 teams in different conferences normally is. First, the Pelicans have lost two division games in a row after a strong showing against a weak Eastern team. Dropping a third game to the still-iffy-now-Hornets may start some panicky rumbles. Next, Charlotte is dealing with just who they really are, and that’s not even touching the branding. Lastly, if the on-court battle is both as epic and as silly as the battle of the brands, this one is going to be hard to not watch.

Check out Chris Trew’s take on the branding.

My questions to start the chit-chat:

  • Can Alexis Ajinca keep his fouling under control?
  • How will Jimmer Fredette score his first field goal for the Pelicans?
  • Is this the game where Tyreke Evans actually shoots a fireball, and (bonus) would that be a foul?
