Los Angeles Clippers Crush the Charlotte Hornets

The Charlotte Hornets traveled to face the Los Angeles Clippers, losing 125-98. While being 7th in the league in three pointers made the Charlotte Hornets are also 2nd in assists. With the Hornets being small ball competitors passing the ball was essential against The Los Angeles Clippers. Paul George led the Clippers early on with 12 points giving them a 37-21 advantage at the end of the first. As a whole the Clippers shot 52.3% as a team which contributed to their victory against the Hornets.

Biggest Concern

The Charlotte Hornets were not competing with intensity on the defensive end against their opponent. The team gave the ball away too much the first half with 8 turnovers. Attacking the boards didn’t occur that much to the Hornets; they were outrebounded during the entire game. Not only Is Paul George capable of attacking the rim but he shot 7-11 from the field sinking 4-7 threes at halftime.

To begin the third quarter the Hornets come out with the same amount of effort they had in the 1st half. With the low scoring game it’s obvious that they weren’t looking like the same team. The Clippers did an amazing job attacking the rim scoring along with drawing fouls. The Hornets gave up defensively, allowing points continuously being scored in the paint. The Charlotte Hornets were led by Gordon Hayward and Myles Bridges, as a team they lose immensely from turnovers.

Despite losing their big in Cody Zeller the Hornets have to do a better job defending the ball. Also the team isn’t doing good on the road with this being their 2nd consecutive loss on the road. Its always great being able to defend home court however winning away games could give the team better chances in the playoffs. The Hornets are also losing by steep deficits which show lack of effort and committing too many turnovers.
