Hawks have six turnovers, including a bunch of the live-ball variety. The Hornets have one. – 6:53 PM

The Hornets, without two of their top scorers, are scoring at will against this Hawks defense. Charlotte is scoring almost 1.5 points per possessions. – 6:51 PM

Danilo Gallinari’s offense is potent against this type of switching. – 6:42 PM

Looked like he came down awkwardly on the play before. – 6:33 PM

Lou Williams Is appearing in his 1,086th career game tonight, tying Clyde Drexler for 84th place in NBA history. – 6:27 PM
James Plowright @British_Buzz
Scottie Lewis taking his chance and making his presence felt with A+ cheerleading on the sideline. But in all seriousness, a really solid start, Ish doing a good job of getting the team organized offensively and still playing with pace, Oubre’s getting his shots up tonight! – 6:22 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Randomly threw on the Hawks game and just saw @Lang Whitaker ‘s better half being honored during the first TV timeout. Congratulations! – 6:20 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
With his first FGM, Clint Capela has 2,300 in his career … He is the 13th player since the 14-15 season to have at least 5,300 pts, 2,300 FGM and 4,400 rebs … In 421 career gms, he is tied for the 5th-quickest among that group in terms of games played to reach those marks. – 6:18 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
When the Hornets switch Ish Smith onto John Collins, it would behoove them to incite some Wake Forest on Wake Forest violence. – 6:12 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
D’Angelo Russell pops up on the Timberwolves injury report today with right ankle soreness. He is listed as questionable for Monday’s game against Atlanta.
Russell missed two games earlier in the season with a right ankle sprain. – 6:05 PM

Patrick Beverley (groin) and Karl-Anthony Towns (tailbone) are both listed as questionable to play on Monday against Atlanta.

After missing the last few games (flu), Jaden McDaniels is probable to play Monday against Atlanta – 6:00 PM

James Borrego also suggested #Hornets aren’t getting LaMelo, Terry Rozier, Mason Plumlee or Jalen McDaniels back until after the conclusion of the 3-game homestand that begins tomorrow against Philadelphia. Sounds like they won’t be available until potentially Dec. 13 in Dallas. – 5:03 PM

Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Asked Nate McMillan about the Hornets missing LaMelo Ball:
“He’s a big part of what they do. They still have a very high-powered offense. First in points, they shoot the 3-ball well, they establish their tempo.”
Hornets are No. 1 in ppg (114.9) and 3-point % (38.3) – 4:29 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Trae Young (left knee soreness) and Kevin Huerter (left quad soreness) will be game-time decisions, per Nate McMillan.
Cam Reddish (non-COVID illness) is out. – 4:19 PM
