After this last loss, it is hard to pick the team to win.

No Chris Paul, no problem. The Hornets season will go down the gutter without CP.

W's by 15.

The road woes continue, and even if you're a potential team in line for Greg Oden and you're facing the Warriors at home, you still have a chance at winning the game. Though the Hornets have been torn apart this season with the loss of CP. Their season comes down to his hands. Especially with West and Peja out. Warriors just can't let a shooter going. You saw what Kapono did.

Well, Warriors by 2. Their confidence is down with that blowout loss and loss of Jason. Hope Nelson, Baron, or someone emerged and gave them some type of motivation speech.

The Hornets will be a very surprising team next year!!! They were doing so great when they had Peja and David West playing!!! And now Chris Paul is out for a month!!! And a top 5 pick this year coming to them!!!!

OHHH!!! Watch out Hornets next yr!!!!

That's my sleeper team next year!!!

With Peja, David West, and Chris Paul gone, the Warriors will win.

hornets by 6. BD gets about 28 points on 7-24 shooting. 7 assists. 7 boards. AB gets in foul trouble. barnes has a good game. Murphy is like 3/8 from the field

Ws should take this, with no CPaul to check BD, he'll have a huge game.

Ws by 11. BTW, last 2 games Ike got 13 in 17 and 16 in 18, maybe Nelson will show a little more love, look for Ike to get his first 20 point game of the year...

No Chris Paul? No Peja?

We still got Baron. That puts us at the advantage. I dunno how many of you guys saw the other Hornets games this season, but New Orleans wasn't even in our league when Paul was on the bench. In street clothes? They don't have a prayer.

Warriors by 10.

We're gonna have bad games, and we've been playing well lately, so what's the worry when we're playing a paul-less Hornets team? Other than the road trouble thing, we should win this one by 8 or more.

Good to see Nelly get kind of pissed when he pulled Dunboy in the 2nd quarter the other nights. Finally. Dun has really been crapping the bed lately. Let the real Ike revolution begin while he's healthy!

Diogu should only get more court time with Murphy and dun sticking it up
