My reporting over the last month inside the frustrated defenses that try to stop Kyrie Irving at the rim
The Nets defeated the Hornets at home, 130-115, by flexing their muscle as a collective rather than the individual superpowers of its three, wait two, err, one-and-a-half stars. @Krisplashedhttps://t.co/azyHKlONKj
That's game: Nets win this one, 130-115, over the Hornets behind a 21-of-41 shooting night from three.
Joe Harris and Landry Shamet come up big with 12 combined 3s vs. Charlotte's 11. Good win for the Nets tonight.
Blake Griffin's alley-oop makes this a 106-93 game here with 9:46 to go in the 4th quarter. Only 9 points and 5 assists tonight from Kyrie Irving, but Joe Harris (26) and Landry Shamet (12) have picked up the scoring slack.
Nets are taking a 94-89 lead over the Hornets into the 4th quarter.
