In perhaps the worst loss of the season, the Charlotte Hornets couldn’t get going and lost a buy game to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.

Yikes, that was not pretty. The Charlotte Hornets really wanted this win against the Cleveland Cavaliers before beginning a very difficult four game stretch against four different playoff teams, but it was not to be.

The Cavaliers, who owned a 1-11 record coming into the game, came out with energy and really had control throughout the entire game. The Hornets couldn’t buy a shot all night long, shooting 8-41 from three-point range.

It was just one of those kind of games for the Hornets, they couldn’t get anything to go down and the Cavaliers took advantage on the other end. Charlotte is now sitting with a .500 record of 7-7, good for the 6th seed in the Eastern Conference.

Every player got a chance to play in this blowout loss, so let’s get into the grades.

When <a href=. SG/SF. Charlotte Hornets. DWAYNE BACON. C+

It was nice to see <a rel=. SF/SG. Charlotte Hornets. NICOLAS BATUM. C

<a rel=. C. Charlotte Hornets. BISMACK BIYOMBO. C

C-. It wasn’t a great night for the exciting Hornets rookie. Bridges scored five points in 15 minutes, shooting just 1-4 from the field. He needs to continue to work on expanding his range to match his explosive athleticism.. SF/PF. Charlotte Hornets. MILES BRIDGES

C. The rookie from Kansas got into the game for the final six minutes of play, but didn’t do much. Graham didn’t score, missing both of his three-point attempts. He did make some nice passes, though. The kid can become a very good playmaker.. PG. Charlotte Hornets. DEVONTE' GRAHAM

C. Charlotte Hornets. WILLY HERNANGOMEZ. C-. <a rel=

FRANK KAMINSKY. C+. <a rel=. PF/C. Charlotte Hornets

B+. The score would have been a lot worse if <a rel=. SG/SF. Charlotte Hornets. JEREMY LAMB

C. <a rel=. SG/PG. Charlotte Hornets. MALIK MONK

C+. <a rel=. PG. Charlotte Hornets. TONY PARKER

C-. This was one of Kemba’s worst games in a long time. He scored just seven points on 2-16 shooting from the field. He played 35 minutes, but just couldn’t get going. He’s a guy that can explode at any moment, but that’s not what happened tonight. Everyone has a bad game once in a while.. PG. Charlotte Hornets. KEMBA WALKER

Charlotte Hornets. MARVIN WILLIAMS. C-. Marvelous Marvin has struggled so far this season, and his struggles continued during tonight’s loss to Cleveland. He scored just eight points and shot 2-7 from three-point land. He hasn’t looked like himself, so hopefully he can turn it around.. PF
