Charlotte Hornets Game Recap: Clutch D Leads to 7th Straight

Charlotte Hornets Game Recap: Clutch D Leads to 7th Straight”

Last season with Charlotte, Batum averaged single-season career-high marks in both points (15.1) and assists (5.9) per game over 77 contests.

The Cavs have won seven straight overall for the longest active streak in the National Basketball Association, and eight in a row over Charlotte.

After Smith split a pair from the line, both teams missed 3-point attempts and Charlotte called time with 11.1 seconds left.

While the top priority for Charlotte's starting unit in Cleveland will undoubtedly be LeBron James, look for a pair of sharp-shooting two-guards to play a pivotal role when the Hornets and Cavaliers meet again on Friday night. Cleveland also wore black jerseys when it won the first championship in franchise history, but the current edition is minus the sleeves from Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals.

LeBron James scored 27 points, 21 of those coming in the second half.

J.R. Smith helped out with 16 points and Kevin Love added 11 points and 13 rebounds in the win.

In Cleveland's next game that season, at Dallas, James started the game without the headband for the first time since the 2003 preseason.

"I just wasn't playing well", James said.

James made a foul shot and converted a three-point play, cutting the lead to one.

Celtics 118, Magic 103: Kyrie Irving scored 17 of his 30 points in the first half as host Boston jumped to an early lead and coasted to a win a night after their 16-game win streak ended with a loss in Miami.

"We knew they were going to Kemba", James said immediately following the contest. But he missed a long three-point attempt on the final possession to finish 1-for-10 from three-point range and 10-for-29 from the field. Hornets G Nicolas Batum was out for Friday's game because of an ulnar nerve contusion suffered Wednesday, but the injury is not believed to be serious.

Derrick Rose (right) is averaging 14.3 points a game in his first season with the Cavs, but has played in only seven of 18 games.

"We missed six free throws in the fourth quarter on the road in a one-point game", Charlotte coach Steve Clifford said.

Cavaliers: Rose sustained his injury while driving to the basket on October 20 in Milwaukee. G Iman Shumpert (sore left knee) could return Monday after missing his third straight game.

"The guys understand what we're doing and what we want", he said.

"They double-teamed me when I got the ball and didn't allow me to get into a good rhythm down the stretch", he said. Smith found his shot in the second half, finishing with 16 points.
