Video: Solomon Hill Buzzer-Beating Putback Ruins Stephenson’s Homecoming

Lance Stephenson, Solomon Hill

It was supposed to be Lance Stephenson‘s game reminding Pacers fans what they used to have. Instead, it turned into an improbably Indiana victory at the buzzer by a guy who most fans outside of Indiana — and even some fans in Indiana — have no idea about. Still, Solomon Hill‘s game-winning putback counted and the Pacers survived the Hornets 88-86. Read More »

Watch Lance Stephenson Get Slapped…By Himself

Lance Stephenson

The best part about this is how upset Lance Stephenson first appeared, like he was about to go after Harrison Barnes. Stephenson took a shot the face trying to get around a Barnes screen to stay with a hot-shooting Klay Thompson, but — as he tongued whatever gash opened in his mouth after suffering the slap, it became apparent he had no one to blame but himself.

Video: Gary Neal’s Game-Tying Score Comes A Fraction Of A Second Late

Gary Neal, Blazers

Down 102-100 to the Blazers with 3.5 seconds left in regulation last night, Hornets guard Gary Neal took the inbounds from Lance Stephenson, drove right past Damian Lillard and appeared to knot the game at 102-all to force overtime as the buzzer sounded. It wasn’t quite in time, as replays show. Read More »

Video: Jeremy Lin’s 21 Points Leads Lakers To First Win

Jeremy Lin

The Lakers, stuck without a win through their first five games, finally notched a “W” with a 107-92 victory over the visiting Hornets Sunday night. Jeremy Lin, and a rather inept Hornets offense, were a big reason why. Lin dropped 21 points and added seven dimes in a shade under 33 minutes of action. Read More »

Make that two overtime game-winners for the Charlotte Hornets. Just over a week after Kemba Walker played hero against the Milwaukee Bucks in the return of Buzz City, Lance Stephenson kept the magic going with a last-second jumper of his own. Watch Born Ready give the Hornets a 122-119, double-overtime win over the Atlanta Hawks with a banked-in three-pointer as the game clock hit all zeros. Read More »

GIF: Block Of The Season? Cody Zeller Rises To Reject Jeff Teague With Two Hands

Cody Zeller

Cody Zeller doesn’t exactly protect the rim like Alonzo Mourning used to for the Charlotte Hornets, but that hardly means he’s a traffic cone. Not only is the sophomore big man 6-11, but he’s a remarkably explosive leaper from a stand-still – according to DraftExpress, he’s the only prospect 6-10 or taller to ever record a no-step vertical leap of more than 35 inches at the pre-draft combine. Atlanta Hawks point guard Jeff Teague learned that the hard way tonight when he turned the corner around a ball-screen and exploded for a dunk attempt, only to have Zeller throw the ball right back at him with a towering, two-handed block.

Obama On Jordan’s Golf Quip: Think More About The Bobcats – Or Hornets

Barack Obama, Michael Jordan

We just think it’s cool that President Barack Obama and NBA icon Michael Jordan are even friends. That they feel comfortable poking fun at one another through the media? Pretty awesome. After Jordan recently quipped that Obama is “a s****y golfer”, POTUS playfully fired back by imploring MJ to worry more “about the Bobcats – or the Hornets” than his golf game. Read More »

GIF: Anthony Davis Blocks The Apogee Of Al Jefferson’s Jumper

Al Jefferson, Anthony Davis

Al Jefferson thought he had an easy bucket in the first quarter of Charlotte’s game against New Orleans last night. Against anyone else on the planet he might have. But the Pelicans have Anthony Davis, and that was enough to stymie what should have been the easiest bucket of Jefferson’s night. Read More »
