has 22 points with 2 mins left in the 2nd qtr against the Cavs.
game is tied.
Finished with 37. Beastly
Always knew he would have success in the NBA based on how he played at LSU.
Set Hornets record with 23 points in 2nd QTR
4th most points by a rookie off the bench since the NBA/ABA merger.
im still pissed the mavericks didn't draft him.
Another good game for him tonight: 28 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals.
Over the last 10 games, Thornton leads all rookies in scoring with 22.5 ppg. Collison is tied for second with 21.4.
The Hornets have a pretty poor record in the draft, but they struck gold this year.
The latest top rookie poll had Collison at #3 and Thornton at #4. I think Evans and Curry were #1 & #2... pretty good company.
He was fun to watch at LSU and now as a Hornet. I hope they can keep him around.
