In 21 minutes off the Hornets bench on Sunday, Gary Neal scored six points with seven rebounds, three assists and four turnovers.
The Scoop:Neal was red-hot in his first four preseason games but has since gone cold, and his reality as a fantasy option lies somewhere in between. As long as the Charlotte's starting backcourt is healthy, there's no reason to give him any thought him in typical formats.
Gary Neal finally cooled off with four points on just 2-of-12 shooting with three assists and six turnovers in a 31-minute start on Friday.
The Scoop:Neal wasn't breaking down any doors with his preseason surge but in deeper formats he has been well worth watching. He started tonight, but will come off the bench when the games start to count.
Gary Neal scored a team-high 20 points for the Hornets on Wednesday, hitting 5-of-9 FGs and 10-of-10 FTs in support of starters Brian Roberts and Lance Stephenson.
The Scoop:Kemba Walker (knee) wasn't available and the Hornets' offense fell to pieces without him. They scored 84 points on just 34.1 percent shooting, including a paltry 3-of-22 mark from downtown. They'll look to bounce back during Friday's road game in Washington D.C.
