The Charlotte Hornets entered last Wednesday’s game with the Memphis Grizzlies on a five game losing streak and were in need of a win to get something out of the road trip. Since that point, they have responded to real off three straight wins including a huge win at home over the Warriors on Sunday. Radio voice of the Hornets, Sam Farber, joined the Mac Attack earlier today to talk about the win and pointed to a big second half from one of the veterans in this one.
“There is a certain amount of toughness that comes with Terry Rozier, especially down the stretch,” said Farber of Rozier, who scored all 20 of his points in the second half on Sunday. “You’ve got to have pretty iron will to be able to in the clutch moments, come up with the biggest of plays.” Rozier has done that consistently over the past couple of seasons and did it once again on Sunday in the Hornets biggest win of the season.
The Hornets will now get set to welcome division foe Washington to the Spectrum Center on Wednesday night, as they look to take down the a second straight conference leader. As Farber said earlier today, the Hornets will face a team that come together quickly. “I thought by season’s end Washington would be pretty good. I’m surprised that it has fit together this quickly because they have so many new parts coming in after the Russell Westbrook trade. (They are) really talented players who are used to playing with each other.” The Hornets will tip against the Wizards at 7:00 PM tomorrow night right here on Sports Radio FNZ with Sam Farber on the call and Kyle Bailey and Travis “T-Bone” Hancock will get you prepared an hour prior with the Hornets Pregame live from the Spectrum Center starting at 6:00 PM.
