After winning two in a row, the Charlotte Hornets cannot pull off a road victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

This game was not right from the start for the Charlotte Hornets. The team shot poorly from beyond the arc at the beginning of the game, and this led to the team being put in a hole early.

The team finished the game with only six made threes, while they attempted thirty-one from behind the arc. The Hornets also managed to knock down two more shots than the Oklahoma City Thunder; the Hornets made forty-three total shots.

With this loss, the Hornets drop back down to .500 (9-9) on the year. The team will look to get things together as they face the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta on Sunday evening.

The grades for the players will be handed out now for the players who entered the game. Players like Michael Kidd-GilchristTony ParkerMalik Monk, Willy Hernangomez, and Bismack Biyombo will not be graded; this being because they did not enter the game.
