The San Antonio Spurs beat the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday night, but it wasn’t as easy as I expected. The Spurs jumped to a 27-19 lead to end the first quarter but the Hornets stayed in the game, thanks to a big third quarter.
The Hornets outscored the Spurs 26-14 in the third and only led by five going into the final period. Neither team was spectacular on this particular night, but the Spurs made the better plays.
A key in the game was the three-point shooting. The Spurs shot 10-29 from three-point range, while the Hornets shot 6-18.
The Hornets truly missed their leader Kemba Walker, who is out with surgery on his torn meniscus. Walker was averaging 18.8 points and 5.2 assists this season.
Al Jefferson had a good game for the Hornets, as he went for 17 points and 16 rebounds.
The Spurs are now 30-17 on the season.
