I don't know why, but for some reason I'm really pumped up about this game. I want it. Badly. Unfortunately as I said in the preview I think the odds are longer than usual against us getting it. But that doesn't change the fact that I want to smoosh the Hornets. Maybe it's the Roy-Paul debate. Maybe it's the bee in Tyson Chandler's bonnet that has spilled out onto the court the last couple of games. Maybe it's just finishing this obnoxious road trip with a winning record. Who knows? Who cares? Just go out there and play to win.

Let's pump this one up early!
