WOW!! what a great win first playoff victory since 2002 our defense was so much better and i really liked our offense yesterday even though we didnt make alot of 3 pointers. But omg the refs were terrible Whiteside and Dragic both should of easily fouled out in the 3rd quarter. The atmosphere was spectacular an amazing experience and The Hive was really loud last night!
Also Miami hat crowd noise blaring from the speakers during practice Friday and the QC Sports Report tweeted: "I gotta say @Hornets fans brought it tonight. Announcers said Heat prepared for noise, but tonight was way more than expected"

Well lets see what happens Monday night hopefully we can tie the series at 2-2 that would be awesome. BUZZ CITY!

Hate that I missed the spring but it was definitely worth. When Lin hit that transition 3, the place went crazy. I haven't heard it that loud since the old days of the Hive with LJ and Zo.


Also funny to see a lot of Heat fans still wearing Lebron jerseys.

If good Kemba sticks around, we'll win the series. Hopefully he can stay hot for a long stretch like he did in early 2016.

Yep. He was on fire for portions of the game, but he was also awful in other portions. Marvin...are you still part of the team?

He didn't score last night but he was a huge catalyst on the defensive end, when there was hustle play to be made he made it.

The block he had from behind on Josh Richardson was awesome.

Tough night from Kemba, Nic, and Lee.  I really thought we had no business winning that game but some great 3pt shot making when it mattered really made the difference.


Nic is obviously not healthy.  We can get by with his limitations this series because Cliff is hiding him on Winslow, but thats gonna be a big problem if we make it to the next round.


The Jefferson/Kaminsky starting line up is bad.  Kaminsky is getting abused by Deng.  He's basically had 1 good qtr this series.  I know theres only so much you can do with Batum hurt but man its tough to watch.


I have a good feeling about Friday.

I remember Game 6 versus the Bucks in 2001.  The Hive was packed to the roof and was loud as ever.  However, a huge 3 by Ray Allen and then a miss by Baron Davis in response sealed the deal for the Bucks and game 7 went to Milwaukee where the Bucks won.  Needless to say, need to take care of business at home this time.  Don't want to have a game 7 in Miami with their experience.

Poorly played game by both teams (even I'd say), we just made the hustle plays and hit the big shot in the last minute.

i dont see the hornets pulling out a game 7 on the road in Miami, so i agree they have to get it done Friday.  Miami has been s*** on the road all year.  I hope it holds up one more game.

What a s*** sandwich.  Marvin Williams and Frank Kaminsky absolutely destroyed the Hornets all series.  It was there for the taking with a shot a vulnerable Raptors team to head to the conference finals.  Super disappointing.

Agreed.. Marvin was awful.. but Frank is just terrible, he a mess offensively and on D? Tina Turner gotten beaten with less vigor and frequency by Ike than Frank did by Deng. Batum being out was a killer. Even if Kemba played well, no one else did.

Many decisions next year.

1. Batum.. Is he a max player
2. Jefferson?? Not much tread left IMO
3. Marvin- Until he ghosted in the playoffs I was all for it.. Needs to be a reasonable deal
4. Lin- he's gone. HE will opt out and someone will over pay him
5. Lee? I like him.. Hopefully he can get a reasonable deal

Spencer Hawes will save us

Offseason priorities in order IMO:
1. Batum
1a. Batum
1b. Batum
2. Lee
3. Jefferson (vet minimum)
4. Lin (something reasonable, he is a solid option off the bench but you're not getting better as a team by overpaying guys like Lin)
5. Marvin (vet minimum)
