If Charlotte Hornets plan to make a real postseason run, LaMelo Ball must lead the way

+

No matter what happens Sunday in Charlotte’s regular-season finale, we know a couple of things for certain. First, the Hornets are going to be in the play-in tournament. Again. Second, LaMelo Ball is going to be better in the postseason this time around, and because of that the Hornets have a better chance to make it last longer. What Ball has done in the past two Charlotte games has been superb, as the Hornets (42-39) have pulled off back-to-back wins to ensure their first winning season since 2015-16. They’ve also guaranteed that Sunday’s 3:30 p.m. game will mean something to them, as they vie for the chance to host a play-in game (teams 7-10 in the Eastern Conference make the play-in tournament; two will emerge to make the actual playoffs).
