The second unit did its job again. Jordan Farmar looks stellar and Vlad Radmanovic hit two 3-pointers to bring the Lakers within 36-32, but the Hornets responded with the next six points to rebuild a 10-point lead. Give these Hornets some credit. It’s not an ultra-talented group but they don’t get rattled, they move the ball well and they play solid defense, although the starters play much better defense than the second unit. The Hornets lead 44-35 with 6:51 remaining in the first half.
