Podcast: Were the Hornets good before they played the Celtics?

The Hornets were riding high after a three game winning streak, but that all ended against the Celtics.

NBA: Atlanta Hawks at Charlotte Hornets Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Charlotte Hornets won three straight games after we recorded our last episode, much to our surprise. If we recorded before the Celtics game, the title of this episode would be “Are the Hornets actually good?”

But that ended when Kemba Walker and his new team the Boston Celtics came to town. We talk about the Hornets playing in primetime, the Kemba tribute and reunion, the broadcast, and the game itself. We talk about whether the preceding win streak or the one game against the Celtics is more indicative of what we’ll see from this team moving forward and touch on our big takeaways from the good run of play.

In the second half of the show, we talk buzzin’ and wuzzn’t and if it’s time for James Borrego to start thinking about reshuffling his lineups. We preview the Hornets next three games against the Pelicans, 76ers, and Grizzlies and predict the Hornets over that stretch of games.
