It's painful to lose this game, as we played pretty well, and this including the fact that the Hornets played well as well. Only if:
Jackson and Harrington got more rest--Jackson especially. Mixing in some of the young guns in the 2nd and 3rd quarters will not only refresh Jax and Harrington for the 4th, but also provide a spark in those middle quarters.
That turnover: simply not acceptable to screw up a play in that situation.
At least there were positives: Maggette showed that he's a force, there were only a couple threes that I would say were ill-advised shots, we functioned well as a team, Turiaf looked good, and Azubuike was especially great. Demarcus can hold his weight during the time that he's in but nothing more.
