The Wizards won 109-101 over the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday. John Wall led all scorers with 27 points and 12 assists. He's getting back into the super-scorer we saw earlier this month, so that certainly makes me feel pretty excited! Kelly Oubre scored 8 points, and made both of his three point attempts tonight in his first career start since Otto Porter was unable to play.
As for the Hornets, five players scored in double figures. Kemba Walker led their team with 18 points but took 18 shots to get there. The most effective player for Charlotte was backup guard Jeremy Lin who scored 15 points on 6 of 13 shooting. He also dished 7 assists and grabbed 6 rebounds for an all around great performance.

Let's get to the recap roll:
With the Wizards wearing throwback jerseys tonight, there was certainly a lot of homage paid to the Bullets name since the Wizards' Twitter page and the video screen indicated that. The Wizards also honored Michael Adams, Chris Whitney, and Bernie Bickerstaff last night -- a video recap of that is here.
53 users commented 623 times in our first half, second half, and postgame threads as of 12:20 a.m. ET on Sunday, December 20, 2015. Here's where you stack up:

I never thought of the Wizards' sleeved jerseys looking like soccer kits, but John Wall does have a good physique for a soccer player now that I think about it:
When teams win, I feel that showing a GIF of Robert Sacre is appropriate too:

Pancake spotlight: Chocolate Chip Pancakes
I have a sweet tooth. I love chocolate chip cookies. So why not have them on pancakes?
Here's one video recipe I found via 4 Ingredients' YouTube channel. From 1:16-1:25, the host Kim does a random dance, which I sooooo don't get. But whatever, I'm hungry. I want my pancakes!
