Mark your calenders. For the first time all season, Hornet fans were treated to a live showing of Demps and Monty's vision of the future. Tonight, we looked like potential championship material. From Al-Farouq Aminu's activity to Anthony Davis causing havoc around the rim to Eric Gordon playing like a star. Oh yeah, Greivis Vasquez was pretty good again too.

The game got off to a choppy start as both teams had 3 turnovers a piece within the first three minutes. Then the Hornets were able to focus their energy much better to build an 18-10 lead. Everyone was aggressive but no one set the tone better than the Commish. Although his shot wasn't finding the bottom of the net, Gordon was able to get himself to the line. However, it was his chase down block on an apparent Danny Green transition layup (check it out on NBA.com) that signaled tonight might be special.

After Jason Smith hit three consecutive jumpers to finish the first quarter strongly, the Hornets continued to play well throughout the second. Ryan Anderson, Davis and Gordon combined for 19 points and the good guys went into halftime with a 49-41 advantage.

At this point, I know what you're thinking. Home third quarter blues just around the corner, right?
