  • The Hornets reliance on their zone defense
  • The Hornets recent track record against superstar lead ball handlers and how they’ve completely shut them down
  • The team’s defense with Washington at center and how it’s working so well despite how ugly it can look at times
  • Small sample size theater with Miles Bridges at center
  • Why Malik Monk and the second round picks haven’t cracked the rotation
  • Buzzin’ and wuzzn’t
  • Miles Bridges buying into a bench role
  • LaMelo Ball being amazing
  • Gordon Hayward being good too
