Hornets defeat Timberwolves with well balanced attack, 113-106

Hornets defeat Timberwolves with well balanced attack, 113-106

James Borrego tweaked the rotation, and the new look group came through with a victory. James Borrego made a last minute adjustment to the lineup and, for tonight’s game at least, it worked. Dwayne Bacon got the start in place of Nicolas Batum, joining Kemba Walker, Miles Bridges, Marvin Williams, and Bismack Biyombo in the starting five. They didn’t light the world afire as a group, but they played well. Miles Bridges played perhaps his best game as a pro. He scored 11 points and hauled in 12 rebounds, making for his first career double double. He even threw in four assists and two...

Huge second quarter spurs Hornets to victory over Nets, 123-112

The Hornets outscored the Nets by 19 points in the second quarter and cruised to a comfortable eleven point win. Kemba Walker scored 25 points, Nicolas Batum scored all 17 points in the second half, and Jeremy Lamb and Frank Kaminsky scored 22 and 15 points off the bench respectively as the Hornets cruised to a 123-112 win over the Nets.

The Hornets were able to hold serve, and then an interesting substitution happened. Frank Kaminsky was the first sub...

Hornets can’t close the door, lose to Rockets 118-113

The Hornets had a lead going into the fourth quarter, but they couldn’t hold on. Kemba Walker scored 35 points and Jeremy Lamb scored 18 to go along with 14 rebounds and 6 assists, but it wasn’t enough as the Hornets lost to the Rockets, 118-113. The Hornets got off to an ideal offensive start. Nicolas Batum, Marvin Williams, and Miles Bridges each hit 3-pointers on consecutive possessions. The Hornets went basket for basket with the Rockets for most of the period and did a great job limiting James Harden, but a 9-2 run from Chris Paul put the Rockets up 41-33 at the first intermission....
