Charlotte Hornets decimated but winners in Atlanta in the NBA

Covid, which Covid? The absence of four players placed in isolation, including their star LaMelo Ball, did not prevent the Charlotte Hornets from winning in Atlanta on Sunday night (130-127). Miles Bridges (31 pts including 4/6 to 3 pts) and Kelly Oubre Jr (28 pts, 6/10 behind the arc) leapt into the breach to stop the bad series of three defeats of the Hornets.

Both teams kept pulling out award-winning shots: 17/37 each, but the Hornets were the most effective in the fourth quarter, including Bridges who scored 13 100% shooting points in the money-time. “It’s a match that sends a message, to tell people that we are there”, launched the latter.

Trae Young signed 25 points and 15 assists for the Hawks, but he was more imprecise in his shots at 2 points (5/12) than 3 points (4/10). John Collins had 31 points and 12 rebounds. In the Atlanta major five for the fourth time in a row, Frenchie Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot had the longest playing time of his team (39 minutes), recording 12 points (5/10 shooting including 2/5 behind arc), 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocks.

In the last two matches of the night, Pascal Siakam (31 pts, 6 rebounds) led Toronto to victory against Washington (102-90) and the Houston Rockets confirmed their astonishing recovery by aligning a sixth victory in a row against the New Orleans Hornets (118-108), still without Zion Williamson (foot).
