Hornets Hand Warriors Rare Loss, Young Drops 40 On Bucks

Jonathan Grant | November 15th, 2021

The Golden State Warriors have made a fantastic start to the NBA season. Coming into Sunday, they’d had only lost once in 12 outings. Following their run-in with the Charlotte Hornets, however, they now have two losses next to their names. The 106-102 defeat brings their record to 12-2 thus far, and it came courtesy of a tremendous team effort at home. The Hornets got 22 points from Miles Bridges while Lonzo Ball kicked in 21 and Terry Rozier had 20.

They also did a great job defensively in the all-around, low-scoring fourth quarter. The Warriors only managed to score 14 in that final period, and that made the difference in the end. Steph Curry finished with 24 points and ten assists in the defeat while Andrew Wiggins led all scorers with 28. In other action, the Atlanta Hawks will hope to have breathed some life- and momentum- into their season following a brilliant performance against the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday. Trae Young was impervious in a 120-110 home win, scoring 42 points and dishing out ten assists to get revenge for last season’s Eastern Conference Finals to defeat to the Bucks. Giannis had 26 points to lead the visiting Bucks, who fell to 6-8 with the loss. The Hawks pulled themselves up to 5-9 while ending a six-game losing streak with the result.
