Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
This Lillard shooting thing is weird. He scored 14 points on 5-of-20 shooting while going 2 of 14 on threes during a 125-113 loss at the Hornets. – 9:15 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Good win by the Hornets. It’s early, but they seem for real. Bunch of athletes, good shooters, solid depth. Just need some interior defense. – 9:14 PM

Mike Richman @mikegrich
A lot of the Blazers issues boil down to Dame’s shooting tonight but I think that Hornets’ size and athletes exposed some of Portland’s limitations as well. – 9:12 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Kelly Oubre has tied a season high with 5 made 3-pointers, He has 21 points. #Hornets lead 105-97 – 8:57 PM

Casey Holdahl @CHold
Hornets outscore the Blazers 11-4 to start the fourth and Portland trails 100-92, their largest deficit of the night, with 9:58 to play. With a game tomorrow versus 76ers, Blazers need to score out of this timeout or start considering what’s next. – 8:53 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Career high 9 assists for Miles Bridges tonight. – 8:50 PM

Casey Holdahl @CHold
Hornets 89, Blazers 88: end of third quarter. 17 points, 5 assists for @CJ McCollum. 14 points, 1 assist/rebound for @Anfernee Simons. 14 points, 3 rebounds/assists for @Norman Powell. 11 points, 10 assists, 4 rebounds for @Damian Lillard. – 8:46 PM

End of 3rd Q: #Hornets 89, Trail Blazers 88 – 8:45 PM

Casey Holdahl @CHold
Blazers with as many turnovers in the third quarter (6) as they had in the first half – 8:45 PM

Casey Holdahl @CHold
They came into the half with the leads so it’s not all great but despite being well outplayed in the quarter, Portland is tied at 80-80 with 3:28 to play in the third. – 8:39 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Miles Bridges has tied a career high with 7 assists. – 8:27 PM

Suffice to say, Blazers aren’t especially enamored with the referees at the moment – 8:25 PM

Jay Allen @PDXjay
The #Blazers had 18 assists on their 22 made FG’s in the 1st half tonight in Charlotte. They had 18+ assists in a half once all of last season. #RipCity8:21 PM

Cody Zeller is wearing “Thank You, Charlotte” custom shoes tonight for his return to play the Hornets, with artwork from Halloween costumes he’s worn when visiting kids at the Hemby Children’s Hospital.

Terry Rozier just finished his warmups. Almost feels like a season debut for him. pic.twitter.com/k2Zisdcmcc6:08 PM

Jason Quick @jwquick
Doesn’t sound like there is a clear-cut plan to implement Tony Snell into rotation tonight in Charlotte. Chauncey Billups said Snell’s lack of practice while recovering from right foot sprain and the rotation playing well will make his debut be based on “feel.” – 5:44 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Portland coach Chauncey Billups said Cody Zeller became a fan favorite in his new city after “one game.” First game back in Charlotte tonight for the former member of the #Hornets. pic.twitter.com/ivklGr1Jec5:41 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
James Borrego said Terry Rozier is warming up with the intent to play tonight vs. Portland. He’s going to go unless there is a set back during pregame. pic.twitter.com/6BBtfvFXih5:28 PM
