The Hornets are hoping to keep the momentum going on the road against the Cavs. The Hornets team defense gave them the win against the Pistons as they were able to limit Griffin to only 4-of-16 from the floor. Miles Bridges put up eight points, eight rebounds, two assists, one block he is coming a huge part of the Hornets offense in these last few games. Bridges is averaging 7.8 points and 4.3 rebounds per game with MGK dealing with an injury Bridges will see more playing time in the future.

Cleveland Cavaliers 's Latest Performance :
The Cavs will return home to face the Hornets for a game. They have now lost five games in a row and they remain the worst team in the NBA. The Cavs are coming off their best game of the season the game ended with a layup attempt by Sexton that fell short. Tristan Thompson scored a season-high 22 points with 12 rebounds, one assist and two steals in 34 minutes. Sexton also had one of his best games as a pro, despite his last-second failure, scoring 20 points on 8-16 shooting while dishing three assists to only one turnover. Sexton is looking more and more comfortable in a larger role, and it didn’t hurt that his jumper was running hot. He will get the opportunity to go up against Kemba Walker in the next game. The Cavs are still seeking for their second win of the season if they are able to keep up the intensity they are giving themselves a chance to win. It is hard for the Cavs to bounce back after successful years with LeBron all the Cavs can do now is trust the process.
