The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Not pretty, but we'll take it

Maybe it's easier to beat the first-place teams after all. And it helps to run up a twenty-point lead early; even with the usual Hornets fourth-quarter drought and a couple of technicals — Jackson Vroman was actually tossed from the game — the Bees made life miserable for the Los Angeles Clippers, 102-89.

We'll find out whether this works Friday night in Baton Rouge, where the 10-12 Hornets, who won at Phoenix on Monday, will have to take on the Suns again.

Attendance at the Ford was a modest 17,490, but the decibel level was as high as ever.
