Last night was ugly. Not because the Charlotte Hornets couldn't score or defend or rebound. No, those things were fine. In fact, last night's game against the New Orleans Pelicans was fun. It was all-around enjoyable basketball. Last night's game was ugly because the Hornets fell victim to a missed foul call that likely would've decided the game in their favor.
But last night was last night. Tonight, the Hornets are back at home playing the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks aren't great, but they're fun. Tonight's game should be very entertaining if nothing else. Both teams know how to score.
This is a game the Hornets should win. They're more talented, deeper, and have a better system on both offense and defense. Where the Bucks do have an advantage is in overall athleticism. Luckily, the Hornets' savvy should limit what the Bucks can do.
Grab your snacks and get to your TV. It's time for Hornets basketball!
