What It Means: Batum has been shooting well from long range this season, and his .362 three-point percentage is his best mark since the 2012-2013 season. He's also averaging a career-high 15.3 points to go with 7.0 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.1 steals in 34.9 minutes per game. He finished the game ranking second among Hornets players with a 15.7...

Clippers outlast Hornets in hero ball exhibition

Clippers outlast Hornets in hero ball exhibition

Kemba Walker and Nicolas Batum combined for 14 made 3-pointers to force overtime against the Clippers, yet it ultimately wasn’t enough for the Hornets to pull out the win. Taking the stalworth Los Angeles Clippers to an overtime wasn’t exactly the result of a perfectly played game on the Charlotte Hornets part. Let’s look at Nicolas Batum, per example. The Frenchman missed his first two shots of the third quarter and thus reached a lowly 1-of-7 from the field for the game. His attempts from the mid-range were of his signature “forced and overly difficult” variety. Luc Mbah a...

Still fading: Hornets lose again, 105-99 to 76ers

Nicolas Batum made a bold prediction before Monday night ’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers and guaranteed a win for the slumping Charlotte Hornets, a win that the Hornets desperately needed to stop their tumble down the Eastern Conference Standings. Unfortunately Batum’s attempt to pull the Hornets out of their losing streak was thwarted by a Sixer’s team who seems to play with nothing to lose. Dario Saric played 31 minutes off the bench and finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Sixers, as the Hornets lost for the 10th time in 11 games 105-99. The Hornets stumbled...

Recap: Sixers make Nic Batum look silly in 105-99 win

Recap: Sixers make Nic Batum look silly in 105-99 win

Philadelphia makes Batum eat his words. Nicolas Batum may not have known what Sixers team he was dealing with prior to Monday’s game, but he certainly is now. The eight-year NBA pro -- who’s not typically known to speak out -- issued a guarantee that the Hornets would defeat the Sixers. After Philadelphia’s 105-99 win, he certainly wish he didn’t say anything at all. Batum had a chance to close the Sixers lead to two points with 25 seconds left, but missed an open corner three, sealing the team’s fate. TJ McConnell, who scored just two less points than Batum, certainly didn’t...

Sixers-Hornets preview: Nicolas Batum guarantees victory

The rare mid-season win guarantee! As the Philadelphia 76ers (20-34) prepare for a matchup with the Charlotte Hornets (24-30) on Monday evening, the main thing on the minds of fans is whether or not Jahlil Okafor will still be on the team come Tuesday. Head coach Brett Brown acknowledged that Okafor did not play in Saturday’s victory over the Miami Heat due to rampant trade speculation, and the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Keith Pompey reported that he was not on the team’s flight to Charlotte Sunday afternoon. At this point, Okafor’s tenure in Philadelphia has to be closing in on it’s...
