Ball should be selected to the All-Star roster, not just rising stars. Never seen a rookie rising sooo quickly since Yao Ming.

Graham questionable, PJ and both Martin twins out tonight. Jalen McDaniels called up from the Swarm but it's still gonna be a short bench.

Jarrett Allen would be awesome, but there is zero chance Cleveland would get rid of him, after just trading for him.

LaMelo Ball is the first rookie ever since Luka Doncic to average 14/6/6 by far. On the list there is also Magic Johnson.

Yes, it's unexpected. Truly amazing. LaMelo is growing up like crazy. He took over the game at clutch time, scoring 10 pts in the final 10 mins. His stardom is bigger than Booker and Chris Paul already. Unbelievable kid.

Without Zeller, Haywood and Graham, they still grabbed a win in Sacramento. Not bad.

Now many fans want Lonzo Ball to be traded to us and play with his little brother. Graham for Lonzo.

Lonzo is a good player, but he is about to get paid. I like what the hornets are building and don't think dropping 20M + on Lonzo is a good idea.

We need a solid dominant center, not another back court guard, for the playoffs.

"It was critical to bank those two wins, especially the victory over the shorthanded Raptors. After the Hornets host the Kings on Monday, they’ll play 11 of their next 13 games on the road and 13 of their next 19 against the other 15 teams currently over .500. They’re 7-9 (tied with Boston for the fewest games played) within that group thus far."

The good old days are over...

Seems true.
So my prediction of their final place(10th in the East) is still realistic. Hope the kid can recover soon like Zion last season.

currently we're only 1.5 games out of 4th so who knows. It's basically Brooklyn/Philly/Milwaukee in whatever order you choose, and then everybody else.

I doubt they can make it to the playoffs without Ball. This season's rising is largely due to the fact we got the best rookie in NBA's modern era(period). So far we are just one game more winning than the 9th and the 10th. The following schedule is still very intense and we have to survive through the two crazy road trips first. With only Gordon Haywood and Terry Rozier, the two veterans traded from Celtics, playoff spot is not guaranteed.

^^ Lonzo Ball has been played for two teams in 4 yrs. This is gonna be his 3rd team and 2nd trades. Unless we use him like Jeremy Lin, a journey man and backup PG, otherwise we'd rather keep Graham.

Bought Brad Wanamaker from GSW with cash. He is Jeremy Lin type of backup PG. kinda compensate for the loss of Melo and get ready for the playoffs run.

I agree with you shoot, Wanamaker is another Yi Jialan, he is definitely the missing piece that can make up for lamelos absence. Just hope he lives up to the hype

^^^^ Wanamaker has adapted to the team and can contribute about 10 pts in 20 mins per game. Not bad at all. But hopefully Lamelo can still come back in the playoffs.

Lol the Hawks were missing Trae Young, Danilo Gallinari, John Collins, De’Andre Hunter, Cam Reddish, Tony Snell and Kris Dunn.

But they are also coached by NATE THE GREAT MCMILLAN

^Both sides were lack of star players. So it's an incomplete potential playoff match like Saturday's Lakers vs Nets.

This game made a difference. Now they come down to No. 7 and Hawks take their spot. But they don't have to travel a lot anymore. 6-4 home-guest games before the end of April. They should be able to bounce back.

Tonight perhaps is their last game of the season. Ball is a little bit disappointed after returning from injury, and Haywood is still resting on his fat contract like MKG. If they can't take the lead at the halftime in Indiana, the road is ending.
