It has been a whirlwind of a 2019-20 season so far for the Charlotte Hornets. Let’s break it down with the good and the bad, shall we?

The Charlotte Hornets are currently 15-23, 3rd in the Southeast, & just 2.0 games out of a playoff spot.  We figured it would be a good time to breakdown how the Hornets have fared so far as we enter a new year.

Hopes were low, to say the least for Hornets fans around the country to start the season.  They went out and won their opener vs Chicago 126-125 where PJ Washington scored 27 points in the victory.  This was a fun game to watch.

They then went on a three-game losing streak, which includes losses to Minnesota, the Lakers & the Clippers.  Then, another streak started as they won three straight vs Sacramento, Golden State & Indiana.  You won’t believe what happens next.

Another losing streak, where they lost four in a row.  From November 15th to now, the Hornets have had four streaks of winning at least two games in a row, with three being their biggest streak thus far.

There have also been the losing skids.  November 18-25 marked a five-game losing streak, where a month later, they beat that by one game, when they lost six straight (Dec. 18-31).  Like I previously stated – a rollercoaster.

What will come of 2020?

That’s truly tough to say.  With how up and down this squad has been, all we can do is make sure we are strapped in tightly and enjoy the ride.

With Indiana on Charlotte’s mind last night, they could not look to start the new year on a three-game winning streak.

This is the part where it seems there is a divide.  Do Hornets fans want to make the playoffs or do they want them to tank?  Me personally?  Give me the playoffs.  At this point, if the team continues to be up and down like this, their chances of a lottery pick in the draft are dwindling.

What sounds more exciting than playoff basketball at the Spectrum Center?  That’s what I’m here for.

Buckle Up – Hold on Tight

Now is the time Hornets fans. Buckle up. Hold on tight. Enjoy the ride.  2020 will be fun to watch and we are here for it.  Charlotte’s next 4 are Toronto (1/8), @ Utah (1/10), @ Phoenix (1/12), @ Portland (1/13).

Next. Devonte’ Graham’s PG skills a great development. dark

The Hornets will end their road trip with a game in Denver on the 15th, then it’s back home for three straight.  Let’s do it.
