Charlotte Hornets Win 6 Straight — Standing Pretty for the Postseason
The Charlotte Hornets have been on a roll recently. Since trading for Mo Williams, the Hornets have won their last 6 straight and their last 8 home games! Mo Williams has been averaging 23.4 pts and 7 assists — oh, and did I mention Kemba Walker is still out recovering from knee surgery?
The once stumbling team is picking up steam at just the right point, with about a month left in the regular season. Last week the Hornets defeated the Brooklyn Nets to win the tie breaker and put the Hornets in the 8th seed — the last playoff spot! After the win, Hornet’s owner Michael Jordan was quoted as saying the Hornet’s haven’t had this much talent since he considered a trade for Bugs Bunny and Bill Murray 😉
I’ll confess that ever since the Bobcats became the Hornets I’ve started to pay more attention to the team. Maybe it’s nostalgia, but it doesn’t hurt that they’re improving! Call me a fair weather fan if you want, but it’s a lot more fun to watch games your basketball team has a chance of winning.
Head on over to the Charlotte Observer for coverage of the Hornet/Raptors game from last night. Spoiler alert, the Hornets came out on top!
