Monday afternoon, the Charlotte Hornets won a critical game against the Detroit Pistons 118-107. This win was much needed for this Charlotte team coming off of a loss in their last game against the Thunder at home.

Marvin Williams had a great afternoon, shooting 7-for-8 from the field and 5-for-6 from 3 for a total of 21 points. Kemba Walker also exploded in the second half after struggling in the first. He would go on to score a total of 20 points on 9-for-18 shooting. He also had nine assists. Malik Monk did not play, along with Dwayne Bacon.

Charlotte struggled out of the gate, they were down by six points at halftime. However, just like their captain Kemba Walker, the Hornets would get it together to overpower the Pistons in the final 24 minutes of play.

On another note, Frank Kaminsky went to the locker room midway through the third quarter with an ankle injury. He would not return. Kaminsky finished with five points on 2-for-7 shooting.

The Hornets will get back in action against the Wizards on Wednesday. They will look to stop the three-headed monster of John Wall, Bradley Beal, and Otto Porter Jr. Fortunately, Coach Clifford will be back on the bench for Wednesday’s game, ready to coach after leaving the team for an extended period of time.

Hopefully, the Hornets will be able to get the W.
