Listen: Our interview with The Starters' Leigh Ellis on the series, the playoffs and hustle stats

This series may not be full of "very solid play" but Leigh has great insight on a fascinating matchup between the Hornets and Heat.

Leigh Ellis took some time out of his very busy playoff coverage schedule to speak with us on a variety of topics including:

  • The Hornets chances in Game 5 and in a possible Game 7 in Miami.
  • Were the officials in Games 3 and 4 influenced to call more fouls for Jeremy Lin due to the fan videos made regarding the subject and the subsequent NBA response?
  • What makes playoff basketball philosophy so different from regular season philosophy?
  • Why are the NBA's new hustle statistics significant and what types of plays and players will they have an impact on?
