The Charlotte Hornets keep fighting and hanging around .500. The Hornets blew the Indiana Pacers out of the gym on Wednesday, notching a 117-95 victory that saw six Hornets score in double figures. Kemba Walker played efficiently for the second straight game, going 10-of-21 for 25 points. Resurgent Cody Zeller grabbed 11 rebounds and added 11 points.
Jeremy Lin and Jeremy Lamb, along with Frank Kaminsky, set the pace off the bench. Lin riled the crowd and put a signature moment on the game with a sprint-out breakaway slam dunk in the second quarter that showcased his speed and put Charlotte up by nine. Lin scored 14 points, and had five rebounds, four assists and three steals in 28 minutes.
