Hornets vs. Mavericks Halftime Update

Hi everybody and welcome to a quick halftime recap. The Hornets have a blowout in the making, but don’t expect the Mavs to roll over and die. Hornets 67-51 Mavs. Here are some stats bullet-style (yes, thats how we roll):

Hornets

  • CP3 got a double-double already with 12 points and 10 assists…anyone still convinced that playoff experience is key to winning a playoff series? That’s his second consecutive double-double and a nice foundation for great career playoff stats. UPDATE: Here is a link to a great TrueHoop post!
  • West scored 18 points and proved that there is a reason why they call him the “17-foot assassin
  • Stojakovic is 3/4 from three point land
  • Chandler is dominating the defensive end with 3 blocks with a little help from Hilton Armstrong who got 2
  • 61.5 FG% and 55.6 3pt% – good times

Mavericks

  • Dirk went to the charity stripe 10 times and has a time-high 16 points
  • The Mavs are shooting nearly 50% from the field and exactly 50% from 3, but all the turnovers are killing them
  • More fouls, more turnovers -> results in less assists
  • J-Ho is having a nice game with 10 points and 5 rebounds (game-high)
  • Shooting like this and still down by 16? Take better care of the ball and keep hustling. No way that the Hornets will shoot 60 FG% in the 2nd half…if they do, you can’t stop them anyway.

Enjoy the second half and get ready for Spurs vs. Suns Game 2!
