Hornets flat against Sixers, lose 62-77


by Kerem Ozkan

In a totally depressing showing, the Gordon-less, Rivers-less and Davis-less Hornets dropped a home game Wednesday night to the Philadelphia 76ers to the tune of 77-62 — the lowest point total in franchise history. As Hornets247 points out, our boys actually managed more turnovers (24) than made shots (23).

 

The Hornets are now 2-2, and have played likely playoff teams in each of their first four games.

 

There aren’t many takeaways from a showing like this. The Hornets are going to struggle, especially when they’re missing three starters. The box score tells the rest of the story. Decent overall defense this game, holding the Sixers to 41.7% shooting and forcing 15 turnovers. Al-Farouq Aminu (16 rebounds!) and Robin Lopez (four blocks!) were particularly impressive. New Orleans just couldn’t buy a shot on the other end, making the entire showing pretty damn unwatchable (especially with games like Nuggets-Rockets and Spurs-Clippers on). Let’s pretend this never happened.

 

The bees return tomorow night for a home game against the Bobcats. Tipoff is at 7 p.m.
