My Favorite Hornet's Moment of the Season


Let’s go in a different direction than my last post. There are a lot of options for my favorite moment of the season, but I’m going with the comeback win against the Kings on December 15th. That night the Hornets came back from a 23-point second half deficit.

Then-Hornet Marcus Thornton went off in the second half, scoring 17 points. Chris Paul had a double-double with 22 points and 11 assists, and the Hornets mounted the biggest comeback in team history.

The Hornets came out incredibly flat while the Kings played their little hearts out, and the game looked over by halftime. My friends and I were stunned. This wasn’t a team the Hornets should be losing against. I recommended that we leave, but my girlfriend said we should stay. Needless to say, I was thrilled we didn’t leave. Though the crowd was under 13,500 people, it was loud in the New Orleans Arena. Anytime the Hornets scored (especially Thornton) the arena erupted. Once the Hornets started the comeback, it seemed almost inevitable that they would win. They did, and it was awesome.

    In my opinion, there were two moments: the incredible series of victories that the team reached earlier in the season and the games 1 and 4 of the playoffs against the Lakers. In those games, we had the old and good Chris Paul back.
