View Full Version : The Hornets when they play the Lakers have been dismal.

The Hornets in both the home games they have played against LA were down by nearly 20 in each game at the half. Seriously what is the deal with them when they play the Lakers?

gee i dont know, maybe the lakers are the superior of the two?

The Lakers matchup extremely well with the Hornets in both the backcourt and frontcourt. Basketball is all about matchups.

1. In both games, Hornets have shot a terrible percentage on the FT line.
2. Lakers have out-hustled the Hornets in both games.
3. Hornets seem to have a lot of turnovers against us.

these are just observations from looking at both games. I was surprised that CP3 couldn't dominate against us. Our defense actually did well tonight.

Even before we had Gasol, we totally blew out the Hornets.

Tells you a lot about the Lakers (or the Hornets)

matchups and LA kills teams with their depth.

da wood

nobody has mentioned that both times the lakers have played them this year it was on a back end of a back to back and last night it was the fourth game of a 4 games in 5 nights stretch for the lakers. hum makes you wonder.

they are showing byron scott that he was a lakers and he will be a lakers even a coach...lol

12-24-2008, 01:12 PM
Maybe it stems from the fact that the Lakers are simply better and the Hornets have no depth. :shrug:
