Charlotte Hornets will take on the Los Angeles Lakers in their home at the Time Warner Cable Arena in North Carolina on Monday, Dec. 28, starting at 7 PM.
Both teams are not in their prime form. The Hornets managed to win against the Memphis Grizzlies last Saturday ending their three-game loosing streak, as per the Charlotte Observer reports. The Lakers, on the other hand, have lost five of their last six matches and will be looking for a confidence booster against the Hornets.
Kobe Bryant will possibly be playing for the last time in Charlotte as he is retiring after this season putting an end to his glorious career.
Star players for both teams haven’t quite stepped up to the occasion. As per the Sports Chat place, “The Lakers are averaging 96.2 points on 41.3 percent shooting and allowing 107.2 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Kobe Bryant is averaging 17.2 points and 3.5 assists while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 14.8 points and 3.8 rebounds.”
The Hornets too are averaging “101.8 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 99 points on 43.9 percent shooting.” Jeremy Lin has been dishing 3.1 assists and the only question being asked is when will “Linsanity” return.
When Lin was performing crazy, all merchandising opportunities revolved around the “Linsanity” craze. He played for the Lakers last season after being traded from the Houston Rockets. He then signed a two year-$4.3 Million contract with the Hornets. Michael Jordan has always praised the young talent but his average points as well as playing time seemed to indicate otherwise.
Jeremy Lin’s current stats this NBA season are as follows:
