New Hornets coach James Borrego plans make Charlotte relevant again in the NBA’s Eastern Conference by developing the existing players on the roster.

He may not have any other choice.

Hornets general manager Mitch Kupchak said Friday ”there is no master plan to blow up this team right now” when asked about the chances of dramatically overhauling the roster after back-to-back 36-win seasons. He said Borrego was hired with the understanding that ”he was going to coach the guys that are on this team right now.”

Borrego http://www.billsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-tremaine-edmunds-jersey , who was hired Thursday night as the first Hispanic-American head coach in the NBA history, appeared to be up to the challenge when he was introduced at a news conference on Friday.

”My mentality is this is our group and we are moving forward with it,” said Borrego, who becomes the 11th head coach in franchise history . ”I’m excited about that current group as it stands right now. I think our biggest room for growth is the internal development piece.”

That’s a good thing since Kupchak said the Hornets don’t have a lot of salary cap flexibility at this time, something which could what the team can do this offseason in terms of free agency and trades. The GM noted that ”right now the likelihood is we are going to go forward with this team.”

Borrego said it is up to him to develop younger players Malik Monk and Dwayne Bacon, who saw limited playing last season as rookies under former coach Steve Clifford. He also pointed toward getting more out of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, a former No. 2 overall pick who is still just 24, and Frank Kaminsky, also a first-round draft pick.

”There is a group of young guys that after this summer should take a major leap,” Borrego said. ”If they take a major leap our roster changes significantly.”

While he was quick to acknowledge turning the Hornets into a winner will be a challenge and that he doesn’t bring ”a pocket full of fairy dust” with him from San Antonio Authentic Martin Kaut Jersey , Borrego does feel the Hornets have quality pieces in place, including two-time All-Star Kemba Walker, Nicolas Batum and Dwight Howard.

Borrego said he is a ”big fan” of Walker and his goal is to open up the floor for him on offense to make more plays.

”It’s my job to put him in position to succeed,” Borrego said. ”For me that means giving him space and a floor that is open to create, so he should be excited about that. I’m in his corner. I back him. I’m with him.”

He likes Batum too, calling him an unselfish player that is hard to find. He also praised Howard for a terrific first season in Charlotte.

The 40-year-old Borrego, who is from Albuquerque, New Mexico, knows what it’s like to win.

He spent 15 seasons as an assistant coach in the NBA, including 10 with the Spurs working under Gregg Popovich where he won two NBA championship rings and went to four Western Conference finals.

He has been a part of staffs that have led teams to the playoffs 11 different times during that span with stints in San Antonio Daryl Worley Color Rush Jersey , New Orleans and Orlando.

Borrego said he plans to play an up-tempo style on offense, while placing an added emphasis on defending the 3-point line on defense.

”There are pieces in place here to play that style,” Borrego said.





COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Washington Capitals played their way right back into their first-round playoff series with the Columbus Blue Jackets, but it took a lot of extra effort to do so.

The Capitals’ 3-2 victory on Tuesday night at Nationwide Arena on a goal by Lars Eller at 8:09 of the second overtime narrowed their deficit to 2-1 in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference engagement.

With Game 4 scheduled for Thursday night at Nationwide, the Capitals find themselves with an opportunity to get even and regain home-ice advantage before the series heads back to Washington on Saturday. That scenario is certainly better than being down 3-0 and facing elimination on the opponents’ home ice.

No team in NHL history had lost the first three games of a playoff series in overtime.

“When you’re down 2-0, it’s almost like two do-or-die games,” Capitals forward Tom Wilson said. “If you don’t win the do-or-die Game 3, you’re probably up against the wall. We kind of looked at it as a do-or-die, must win — and we got the win. So now we can look to the next one.”

Eller’s goal — his first in the playoffs — ended a stellar goaltending duel between Columbus’ Sergei Bobrovsky and Washington’s Braden Holtby before a record crowd.

“It’s going to be a battle again in Game 4 Kalen Ballage Color Rush Jersey ,” Eller said. “But it’s very fair we have one win after these three games. It’s been close every game.

“We don’t look far (ahead). All we talk about is the next shift, next period, small adjustments. We don’t look very far ahead. You’ve got to keep your eye on the ball, and on the next shift. That’s the mentality.”

Extra periods have become a habit for the Capitals, not only in this series but in the playoffs in general. The double-overtime affair was the 13th multiple-goal game in franchise history, and Washington has a 4-9 record in those.

Last year, the Capitals and Toronto Maple Leafs played five overtime games in the first round before Washington came back from a 2-1 deficit to prevailed in six.

Capitals coach Barry Trotz surely would like to break the overtime habit, but Tuesday’s result was certainly better than the first two outcomes.

“We just want to win. If it takes eight periods, we just want to win,” he said. “We won one game today. We didn’t get what we wanted at home http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dante-pettis-jersey , and so our focus has to be on one game.

“To get fat and happy after a win … we’re still in a hole. We need a lot of desperation, we need a lot of commitment, we need a lot of focus. We need to get this tied up. That’s our only focus right now.”

The Blue Jackets still lead the series, but they’ve barely led in any of the first three games. They’ve faced deficits in each and rallied to win the first two before the puck finally failed to bounce their way in Game 3.

“This is what playoff hockey is,” Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno said. “It’s not always going to go your way. But we’ve put ourselves in a real good spot by going in there (in Washington) and stealing two. They’re, I’m sure, fully planning on doing that to us. But we’re going to do everything we can to make sure it doesn’t happen.”

One thing the Blue Jackets want to avoid is penalties, which the Capitals’ potent power play has taken advantage of in each game. On Tuesday, a five-on-three at the end of the second period led to a go-ahead goal by Washington’s John Carlson.

The Blue Jackets came back to tie in the third period on a goal by forward Artemi Panarin.

“I think we’re comfortable in that (trailing),” Blue Jackets John Tortorella said. “We don’t want to be there Chad Thomas Color Rush Jersey , but I don’t think it affects how we play. Sometimes it’s tougher to have the lead. I felt in that third period, (the Capitals) were on their heels, in trying to protect that lead.”

Could there be a fourth overtime game in the offing?

“We just go forward, trying not to be (disappointed), just keep working, just keep playing,” Panarin said. “Anything can happen.”
