There are no pics of Shaquille O'Neal and Eddie Jones available in the headshot gallery...I just took the pics of the playerfiles!

I know we won against Houston but there won't be a win against Miami!

My prediction:
Hornets 99
-
Heat 104

I think Speedy will start again, like he did against Houston, although he didn't play good...

Suprised you guys won last night, so I'm sure we'll be ready to play so we don't get the same surprise Houston got....

We've lost 2 in a row on the road, including Charlotte, so I can't say this is a "easy win", but I think we are gonna be ready to play tonight, we've rested and I'm sure SVG has sent a message to the players since we're not playing too well lately

Every once and awhile the Heat can be suprised (like any contender team) but like Shaq said, they already have lost to the Bobcats recently. I am sure they will be ready to go.

Heat 108
NO 91

No win against the Heat, as expected, but we did quite well! I'm a little bit disappointed of our starters (except Speedy Claxton, who had his first really good game!): Jamaal Magloire with 4 points on 1 of 6 shooting and 3 rebounds in 23 minutes...David West with 0 points and 3 rebounds in 20 minutes...Bostjan Nachbar with 4 points in 19 minutes...J.R. Smith with 5 points in 24 minutes! But our bench did great again, maybe Byron Scott should think about moving back Lee Nailon and PJ Brown into the starting lineup:
C - Magloire
F - Brown
F - Nailon
G - Smith
G - Claxton or Dickau, don't know who is better at the moment...

Inside the Locker Room: April 1, 2005

Postgame Quotes

Forward Chris Andersen
(on the game)
We came out and had a lot more energy (in the 2nd half). I didn't even look at the scoreboard. I didn't know were 18 (points) down. We tried to win the game, and we were able to hold them off at the end.

(on the key to his 16 rebounds)
That was only because Yao (Ming) wasn't out there
Chris Andersen is funny: look at his answer to the key to his 16 rebounds :D

Re: Inside the Locker Room: April 1, 2005

Yeah, I was really close to the result! So I don't have to give 250 to anyone! :D

But I was in advantage, because both, the heat and the hornets are my two favourtie teams!
