The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The Suns are avenged

In spectacular fashion, at that, putting together a 37-10 (!) fourth quarter to more than erase a big Hornets lead and drop the Bees, 101-88, in front of a small (not quite 7500) but vocal crowd in Baton Rouge; clearly this was payback for the Hornets' victory at Phoenix earlier this week.

Once again, the Hornets fail to put together a three-game winning streak, and they drop to 10-13; the Spurs show up at the Ford Sunday night.

I wonder if they will count that against the "home" attendance average ... that is darn good until the "actually go home" to play.

Hornets brass were quick to point out before the game that they didn't consider it any kind of referendum.

Still, two seasons ago, when they were a respectable 41-41 and got a playoff berth, they didn't draw any better than they did last year at 18-64, and you can be certain that the brass know that too.
