Those teal uniforms looked niceeeee.
The Hornets came back from a 24-point deficit to win this game in overtime. They went on a 58-32 run at the end of the game.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was the best player on Charlotte for the first time in his career. 17 points on 6-8 shooting, eight ebounds, and three assists.
The Hornets defense was very lackluster the entire night. It wasn't until that late run that they picked up. This is slightly concerning, but it's possible it was just first game jitters. Either way, they need to play better.
At one point, this was the Hornets shot chart. They can't do that again. Ever.
Lance Stephenson and Gary Neal both struggled all night, shooting-wise, combining to go 5-23 from the field. Ouch.
Al Jefferson didn't have a great night either, only going 6-15 from the field.
Recap will be up shortly.
