Nuggets vs. Hornets Preview: Condensed Version

(Boulder-CO) The Nuggets will be flying into the hive tonight to face the Hornets of New Orleans/Oklahoma City.

Here are my points of emphasis:
  • AI+3=W’s, and don’t forget where you heard it first!
  • The Hornets will be without Chris Paul, “Don’t call” I’ll Peja Stojakovic, David West, and Bobby Jackson.
  • Earl Boykins is 5’5”! Just in case you forgot…
  • Nene is questionable, but Jamal Sampson proved that he can contribute with his showing last night (7 points and 9 rebounds in 17 minutes).
  • Yakhouba Diawara needs to stop shooting the ball until he regains some confidence in his offense. He is still shooting the three without first getting himself to the rim and the free-throw line.
  • DerMarr Johnson is a quality defender and deserves some credit for stepping up and accepting the role that the Nuggets have asked him to while not trying to do too much at the same time.
