The Hornets need two things to happen for a 1st round win; Peja needs to step up and hit his shots to take pressure off of Paul who will be trapped and pressured, and TC will have to be healthy enough to play 25-30min per game...I think the Hornets will take it in 6.

The Nuggets just ripped the Hornets a new one.


Almost a 60 point freaking victory.

Melo makes it out of the 1st round!!!

I know in the past Ive been pretty critical of George Karl and his track record in the playoffs, but the Nugs look for real this year boys & girls. They destroyed this Hornets team (beat them by 58 on their home floor in game 4!!!) and are playing good defense for the first time I can remember. Chauncey Billups outplayed Chris Paul this series and is a stabilizing force at the PG position. The Nugs also have a deep ass bench with active athletic guys like JR Smith, Anthony Carter, & Chris "The Birdman" Anderson. Lake Show better watch out, cuz I think these Nuggets can contend wit them if they make it to the Conference Finals.
