I sadly had to work during the game (time and a half tho). I can’t believe Cody played 45 minutes in a game that didn’t go to OT. Also, it’s pretty crazy that Miles’ 20 point quarter isn’t even our first 20+ quarter by a player *this month.* Even if this team hurts me sometimes, this is the most satisfaction from basketball I’ve gotten since at least 2016. Maybe ever, frankly.

Cody’s rejection was the thing that wet dreams are made of.


ThesfeW2

Miles Bridges said loud and proud "Hey I've got 15 on under here! I've got 15 on!" while pointing at his Charlotte Hornets jersey with one arm, and Kemba wrapped up in the other. Imma fuckin cry man


delarosa_mimosa

Need someone to clip it seriously got tears in my eyes Edit. It’s on the hornets twitter for those interested. Still insane miles is the longest tenured hornets and only one who played with Kemba.


mulgr_naal

where on the twitter?


buzzcitybonehead

[My mom sent me this lol](https://twitter.com/thejacksondylan/status/1483172482672644096?s=21)


mulgr_naal

i’m crying. we need kemba to come back on vet minimum or something for that extra locker room leadership. love him so much


buzzcitybonehead

That’d be so awesome. Imagine Kemba, Miles, and LaMelo winning a playoff series together. It’d be the absolute peak of the new Hornets era without a doubt. Just need Marvin and Big Al to come out of retirement and get a series win in Charlotte, too. It should’ve happened while they were here :(


TusnamiCopy

We need Kemba to end his career here


[deleted]

We could easily do a Plumlee + Ish for Kemba & Mitchell Robinson trade.


delarosa_mimosa

Bro I’m gonna cry seeing kemba and miles


NotoriousTEEK

Dude, same. I hope they find a way to bring him back to Charlotte. He’d be great on this team off the bench.


MJHornet

Miles went so off, that he overshadowed the 22 Rozier point game


Monster-Frisbee

7 assists with 0 turnovers too, good overall game for Terry.


get-tilted

BING BONK


JordanDoesTV

Come to your real home Kemba


KellyOubresMullet

"The final score will not be indicative of how Charlotte dominated here today." - Knicks play-by-play guy Great W


daswassup13

The end of the Knicks bench has made more threes than their entire rotation


guczy

Holy shit, we are really putting the garbage in "garbage time"


TusnamiCopy

Ish is pulling every mid range jumper available to him


bigchadsmitty_82

Only 7 turnovers, no LaMelo. Something tells me those two arent mutually exclusive


Extreme-Engineer7807

I dont think you used that phrase right. Of course they arent mutually exclusive, they just happened together


Dmalikhammer4

It is this season's knicks though. I'll make a call when we play the celtics, who are about our level.


TusnamiCopy

Ish Smith might have the ugliest jumper for a point guard in the NBA


HoopKing20

Thor putting himself in the game


nojeanshere

Thor sighting


spookyghostface

False alarm


spookyghostface

Damn Cody


guczy

Why no Bouk, JB?


ltzKyroz

miles>prime mj


HoopKing20

Congrats to Miles. Played a hell of a game.


MJHornet

CAREER HIGH LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


guczy

64.7% vs 47.4% FT% - am i watching an NBA game?


muzunguman

Don't take him out JB plz just this once


theyikester

Holy shit Miles


HoopKing20

Reddish is going to take 25 shots a game with Knicks.


TusnamiCopy

Where the MB doubters at now!


SportsNAnime

MB had doubters in this sub?


spookyghostface

There it is! Career high 38!


MistralB8Y

Miles really just LeFuckYouThree’d. We have baby Lebron


daswassup13

Need a high flying dunk to hit 40 for Miles


guczy

WTF Miles <3


muzunguman

Holy shite


KillerPussyToo

Best bonk of the season. I love watching the Knicks get cooked in MSG.


chezcola

New York has gone fully biblical.


theyikester

Give Miles the ball!!


chezcola

This win is gonna be huge when it comes to seeding.


JordanDoesTV

I’m a bad fan and thought the game started at 7 but let’s fucking go miles and why is melo out ?


cbdgf

Non Covid illness. Could likely play if we needed him


spookyghostface

Non-COVID illness apparently. He's available to play. Probably just resting him if they can.


deatgaia

he’s sick non covid


theyikester

Sick, not covid. He was available but hasn’t played since we haven’t really needed him


DubbleDan

This games bonk should say home alone 2- bonk in new york


delarosa_mimosa

Get miles 40


Chugajug

OMG MILES


Decimate_2K

Oh my Miles


chezcola

Yes sir


spookyghostface

Holy hell Bridges is electric


mkashef51

Coach waits too long to put the young guys in the game. Its over. Ease them into the game!


tompaws

agreed, it feels unnecessary to be running guys 40 minutes when we're up 17 with 3 minutes left


mkashef51

Right. It’s over. There’s nothing else to prove. Let Bouk get run in his home town. & the other guys chance to play under the lights.


chezcola

I can't wait to rewatch this game. Bridges looks like fire.


ThesfeW2

lol, refs got in their mandatory 3 sec violation on the hornets


muzunguman

Miles playing a different game out there


dpons_

I bet we see Bouk after 5:00 if the large lead holds


AdoxDG

hopefully rooks get some garbage time, should be a easy W


[deleted]

[удалено]


bigchadsmitty_82

We play to the comp


Arniep-Davidson

We simply need to play the rookies more. Bouknight and Thor (to me) are simply better options than what we use rn. The bench is a combined 7 pts on 3/15 shooting!


NotoriousTEEK

Bouk is a more dynamic option than Ish but I get why they play Ish over him. McDaniels needs to break out of his slump or else Thor will take his spot


Arniep-Davidson

They are shooting 20%! JB simply tell me Bouknight isn’t ready in this scenario. Cost us the Magic game IMO.


spookyghostface

You think Bouk's defense is any good? I doubt it at this point. He probably gets some points but I would expect him to give up more.


Arniep-Davidson

I don’t think it can be overstated how big of a problem it is to get no offensive production from the bench. This is the squad that scored 1 basket in 6 minutes in the 4th quarter against Orlando. I just think it’s ridiculous he doesn’t get a single minute in games like this.


spookyghostface

At this point I fully trust JB with all player development decisions.


NuKeD-_-

Knicks offense is horrendous


bigchadsmitty_82

*Knicks is horrendous


COCAINAPEARLZ

i wanna see bouk out there cmon mannnn


MJHornet

lol Knicks fans gon' pull up on us, saying we bribed the ref


lewiscbe

McDaniels feels like he ahould be better than he his, he’s got length, quickness, some handle, some athleticism, a decent shot, and decent defense. But it just never seems to translate onto the court. Guess he probably just needs to get stronger and smarter if he can.


nojeanshere

It’s nice that while LaMelo is available we can have him rest due to playing so well


david00012

That's straight up


guczy

JB, the current lineup aint it


MJHornet

LMAO QUICKLEY I'LL TAKE IT


ThesfeW2

hmm, couldn't get a clear enough look at that 3pt foul to know if it was warranted


Arniep-Davidson

Thor more useful than Jaylen when he’s playing like this.


That_Rutabaga_3530

Knicks fan here and I am coming to say Miles Bridges is awesome and I’m glad he is going off. I argued with someone about him being an all star over Tatum and they didn’t agree. Hopefully this does wonders for his selection. Hats off to him, can’t do anything else then appreciate how he’s worked to become a better player since joining the league.


NuKeD-_-

What a game from Miles so far


lewiscbe

This could be the statement game Miles needs for an ASG push if he ends up with 40+ or a triple double or something


david00012

Give the ball to Miles all 4th quarter and let him work


MJHornet

Can you believe how amazing the future of this Franchise gon' be with Peak Miles & Lamelo? Under good FO decisions, this is honestly going to be a Championship competing duo.


NotoriousTEEK

We really just need a solid big in the mix to clean up mistakes, grab boards and be a rim runner. Sort of like Mitchell Robinson.


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

i'm low key hoping the Knicks pull a little closer so Miles has to get 45+


spookyghostface

Hornets leading by one Miles Bridges.


papamsu5

I just want Miles to drop 40 tbh


I_Feed_Pigz_Pork

MIIILESSS


Cricket-Unfair

If Miles doesn’t come out of this game with a triple double or new career high in pts, I’ll be sad


theyikester

What’s his career high?


PJ25Washington

35


carolinallday17

35 - got a decent shot at it, I'd say


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

35 he's 2 away


LandonWarner

35 I believe


daswassup13

Miles I love you 😭😭


guczy

Terry is cold now as a paper coat in Alaska


spookyghostface

Lmao what the hell Bridges? That was bizarre but I'll take it


NuKeD-_-

Wtf was that Miles 🔥🔥🔥


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

wtf Miles lol


lewiscbe

Wtf was that lmfao


Arniep-Davidson

Yo, how he do that lol.


ThesfeW2

WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT MILES LMFAOOOOO


PJ25Washington

Of course I picked the magic game to go to this year lmao at least we turned it around today


muzunguman

Thank you for your sacrifice


delarosa_mimosa

Randle had Melo sign a jersey for his son 😂. The kids love lamelo so much even if ur dad is in the nba


david00012

Pls tech these fools refs


HoopKing20

How can penguin yell all that crap at the ref but Cade Cunningham points and is tossed for his 2nd tech.


ride_naked

You mean Kelly Oubre?


HoopKing20

Happened to Cade the other day. But you are right about Oubre as well.


guczy

Cade doesnt have knockout gas in his umbrella


Beyard

This is a great game so far, and without Lamelo!! Love our guys :)


nojeanshere

Weird that we are getting good calls


delarosa_mimosa

Terry is the goat. So happy we locked him up and he’s had 2 seasons now where he’s shown how good he can be


daswassup13

We didn’t talk enough about holding them to 44 in a half


HoopKing20

Good point. D is really active today. Rotations are tight.


ltzKyroz

sadly im getting the knicks broadcasting team its never the same.


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

luckily we can sometimes hear Eric in the background


MJHornet

i like how they play with a chip on their shoulder from last game. Good ass mentality


LandonWarner

Agent of chaos Cody Martin


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

great chase down D by Cody


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

let Randle shoot 3s all game


ThesfeW2

Love hayward attacking the basket after the near miss on the 3 prior


dober92

Tougher than turtle jerky lmao


delarosa_mimosa

Imagine hitting a shot in a close game then thumbs downing ur own fans when they cheer. Just gotta be the lamest mentality


spookyghostface

I'm ootl. Who did this?


delarosa_mimosa

Randle


Johnjoe201

Did he do it again ?


delarosa_mimosa

No just bringing it up because it’s truly the lamest. Knicks are coping so hard not turning on him completely


conerrr

Anyone know if melo warmed up at halftime just in case we need him?


guczy

He did warm up


ltzKyroz

havent been keeping up is lamelo injured?


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

he has a non-covid illness. they said he's available but he hasn't played


ltzKyroz

melon flu game?


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

Fournier is awful


SURFACE_LEVEL_EXPERT

God the r/nba thread is somehow using this Miles game to shit on him and the hornets. Saying we are going to overpay him after this and he is not worth it. Honestly, why do people feel the need to talk about teams that they don’t even watch. It’s crazy af. Like, why wouldn’t you say, “Hornets fans, do you think Miles is worth a max deal”? Someone said we should go ahead and trade him!? Like for what and for why? These mfs. I don’t even know why I go there.


spookyghostface

To be fair, that person is getting downvoted to hell. The sub overall agrees that Miles is real good.


SportsNAnime

That sub is like NBA Twitter I don't take them seriously, just laughs


HoopKing20

Miles, Terry and G are going to play 40+ if bench can't contribute.


SportsNAnime

How was the first half? Anything crazy happened? I missed the 1st half


ThesfeW2

Miles 28 points


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

he said crazy things, not things that happen every game


pennyguise

All I ask for today is a miles 40 point triple double and a win. It’s not much.


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

NBA TV guy about Miles Bridges: "There's something in the water in Michigan" ..........


spookyghostface

Miles is literally from Flint too.


Bouquet_of_seaweed

It was Smitty, he is also from Michigan.


[deleted]

LMFAOOOOOOOOOOO


ThesfeW2

BRUH


nojeanshere

No way


lewiscbe

Aint no way😭


david00012

Bench needs to step up Jalen and pj stinking it up so far


issofine

When do we get Oubre back? I miss him coming off the bench


spookyghostface

Prolly this week


mF-Jonezy

It’s frustrating how pj seems to mentally check out when his shot isn’t falling, so many bad turnovers or stupid fouls


Johnjoe201

I think he been ok so fair today but yes I agree when his shot doesn’t fall it affects him too much but sure that will come with age


mF-Jonezy

He’s been terrible today, missed every shot and picked up 3 fouls immediately


BizzaroMatthews

Dude is playing like a 34 yr old vet 😭


delarosa_mimosa

People talk about his lack of size but what really kills him is he has no athleticism or bounce


pennyguise

So true. When Cody’s shot doesn’t fall he’s still a defensive god. We need that type of attitude.


delarosa_mimosa

Seems to be this is just who he is. Hasn’t show any hunger to get better like Miles since he’s been here


Bread_Responsible

I wish I could hear EC going crazy over miles. But being at the game is also good


cbdgf

Did you see Gordon talking shit to that fan courtside?


Bread_Responsible

No I didn’t haha when?


cbdgf

I want to say mid way through the second.


VespidNut93

Miles is so elite, been a huge fan of him since he was drafted


Arniep-Davidson

45 pt first half for Miles+Terry. That’s insane.


NotoriousTEEK

What a gaudy first half for Miles. Holy hell. These are the types of games that might help him sneak into the all star game


BetweenTheBuzzAndMe

S C A R Y T E R R Y


HoopKing20

That was fun.


Johnjoe201

Also the lamelo fans are gonna be salty as fuck lol with him not playing


thats-gold-jerry

Is he hurt?


Johnjoe201

He is “sick “ but available to play but I bet he is actually sick and could play if we really needed him hence why he is on the bench and available to play but jb doesn’t really want to risk it and just give him a game off like


buzzcitybonehead

Wtf Miles? Go off bro.


sflo97

Solid half


YizWasHere

28/8/4 and +25... Miles had a game in the first half lmao


Johnjoe201

Pay that man
