Hornets Win in Dramatic Fashion Against Kings

CARLOTTA, North Carolina – The Charlotte Hornets took a dramatic win in the closing seconds of Friday night’s game against the Sacramento Kings with a 124-123 win.

The Kings and Hornets got off to a fast start at the offensive end of the pitch, but they did it in different ways. Sacramento picked up where he left off in the last matchup against Charlotte, making seven sets in the first 12 minutes.

Despite being without PJ Washington, Mason Plumlee and Nick Richards, the Hornets took control of the paint by scoring 26 of their first 37 points of the night from the inside. Getting the ball to the circle resulted in many high percentage shots that paved the way for the Hornets to shoot 59% off the floor. Cody Martin led all the scorers through one with 11 points. Vernon Carey started from the center and immediately got in the game with five quick points and a rebound. Miles Bridges had a strong hold for the cup and took the lead and one to extend the Hornets at 37-28, but a pair of threes and a Davion Mitchell buzzer-beater reduced him to just one, 37-36.
