The Hornets looked like they started the game with a 3-pointer, but Miles Bridges’ toe was on the line. It was a fitting start to what would end being a catastrophically poor outside shooting game for the Hornets. They started slowly, but every Hawks early lead was countered by a series of Hornets...
