DALLAS — After watching Chris play for one quarter you can see the difference between him the first two seasons in OKC and this year. He’s a lot more aggressive offensively. I don’t have stats in front of me, but I’m guessing he’s taken at least six shots in the first quarter. That rarely happened in either of the Hornets’ two seasons in OKC. Add to that, he only has one assist, which is the Hornets’ only assist in the quarter. That also rarely happened. There were several games where Chris wouldn’t have a shot attempt in the first quarter but he’d have five, six or seven assists. We would always ask Chris when he would become more aggressive and it looks like this year he finally has.
