The Charlotte Hornets enter day four of Orlando Summer league with two losses, no wins, only three quarters won. Their opponent, the Brooklyn Nets, is in a similar situation but with four quarters won instead of three. As a result, Brooklyn is ahead in the standings at seventh while Charlotte sits below them in ninth. OSL has a strange scoring system where teams get points for not only winning games, but the quarters themselves. Charlotte hasn't done well in either category.

If Charlotte is going to get a win then they'll need to get their offense in check. It's been far too inconsistent the last few games, and it's been heavily reliant on jumpshots from players that aren't consistent with them. In short, when Troy Daniels is the best player on the floor then that's a problem. The Hornets should work to get Frank Kaminsky involved more often, and use his ability to pass the ball and score to open up more for everybody around him.

On top of this, Charlotte will need another solid performance out of Aaron Harrison. The undrafted guard out of Kentucky has been changing himself into more of a point guard as Summer League has gone on, and his ability to finish at the rim is doing him wonders. He's played well enough to earn a training camp roster spot, and at this point he should be looking to work on expanding his game.

As for the Nets, the Hornets original second round draft pick of Juan Pablo Vaulet is on the Brooklyn summer league team. It's unclear if he will actually play, but if he does then Hornets fans might be able to get a look at what could have been.
