The Hive Five: Game Fifteen

Pace Eff eFG FT/FG OREB% TOr
LAC 87.0

44.0% 30.7 31.1 17.2

51.3 20.0 20.5 10.3

1. Shooting (√) Great to see the Hornets get back on track from the field. Peja certainly didn’t repeat his last Staples performance, but his 3-4 from downtown was good enough. Plus, the Hornets held the Clips to just 44.0 eFG% in this one, a great sign heading into matchups with the Wolves and Hawks.

2. Turnovers (√) CP3 led the way to dominant ball control performance, with 0 turns following his 4 turn outing against Deron. Sam Cassell was just totally outmatched in this one, turning it over 5 of his team’s 15 times.

3. Offensive Rebounding (X) Pretty much the only thing the Hornets did wrong today. Chandler pulled down 3 OREB’s but Kaman was the man on the glass. If there’s one thing to work on for the next Clips’ matchup, it’ll be limiting Kaman and Thomas who had a combined 24 boards to go with their 31.

4. Free Throws (X) The one deficiency for the Hornets- the inability to get to the foul line- seems to haunt them in wins and losses. As I’ve said in so many recaps so far, the FT column hasn’t hurt us in any losses this year, but it would be a shame to lose a close game down the stretch due to free throws. So hopefully Byron is getting on the guys for not getting to the line in practice.

5. Pace (87) This was the Hornets’ game from the opening tip. Sam Cassell pretty much stood no chance in speeding up the game; another impressive imposition of their own pace by the Hornets on the road.
