I had a hunch that the lineup including Ish Smith + Richards v. Giannis + Middleton could be trouble. – 8:42 PM

Hornets did hit 52 threes in 3 games against the Bucks last year, so… – 8:37 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
And there is DeMarcus Cousins.
He starts the second quarter for the Bucks. Out there with Hill, Allen, Middleton and Antetokounmpo, – 8:37 PM

Charlotte Hornets @hornets
Not too bad…

Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
#Hornets post a 1.41 PPP in 1Q. My only take away is that simply is too good of a start. The correction to the mean is going to sting. – 8:36 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
After one quarter, the Hornets lead, 41-25. They have made 10-of-17 from 3 and that is pretty much the game at this point.

Uh, Terry Rozier already has 7 assists to go with 8 points. The #Hornets had 17 points off those assists he created. – 8:35 PM

Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
Great help D from Rozier in paint. Back-to-back anticipation steals for Terry. pic.twitter.com/7mbwomd8xJ8:34 PM

Frank Madden @fmaddenNBA
Giannis has hit more left-shoulder fadeaways in the last three games (5 by my count) than I can remember him hitting total in…his entire career? – 8:23 PM

Milwaukee Bucks @Bucks
Giannis pulled up. 👌 pic.twitter.com/Sd3uYtrM0V8:22 PM

Miles Bridges halfway to a double-double in the first quarter. Has 6 points and 5 rebounds. – 8:21 PM

Milwaukee Bucks @Bucks
Giannis gets the Bucks going!! pic.twitter.com/LZ4h5UiS0L8:18 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
#Hornets come out hot, hitting 5 of 10 shots and 3 of 7 beyond the arc. Early 17-7 edge for the visitors. – 8:18 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Bucks down, 17-7, with 7:39 left in the first quarter.
Hornets have not been shy from behind the 3-point line and hit 3 of their first 7 shots from deep. – 8:17 PM

Cha-Ching!💰 pic.twitter.com/tUoY55nlK98:16 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Took almost 90 seconds, but the Bucks are on the board on a free throw from Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Missed the first, made the second. Bucks down, 5-1, with 10:36 left in the first quarter. – 8:12 PM

Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
I remember when #Cavs supposedly should have drafted Tyler Herro (and Rui Hachimura and Coby White and PJ Washington) instead of Darius Garland. – 8:09 PM

Mason Plumlee is out warming up even though he’s not playing, which is a good sign. Said he’s feeling much better. He’s close to returning. pic.twitter.com/YPf8uWELEZ6:52 PM

Rod Boone @rodboone
Cody Martin is out for tonight’s game against the Bucks. He’s still not over his illness. Told me earlier at shootaround that it’s some kind of stomach bug. Said he actually felt worse after Bulls game on Monday than he did before it. But he’s expected to play in their next game. – 6:41 PM

Milwaukee Bucks @Bucks
Dunked the Hornets, 114-104, last time out.

Initial impressions are that Jimmy Butler also will miss the Friday-Saturday road games in Indiana and Milwaukee. – 6:28 PM

With TNT dumping Heat vs the disappointing Pacers on Dec. 21, Heat’s only national TV game (not counting NBA TV) in next 2 months is Dec. 8 vs. Bucks on ESPN. Wizards-Nets replaced Heat-Pacers on TNT schedule…. Heat has 5 national TV games after Jan., including Raptors Feb. 3 – 5:46 PM

Charlotte Hornets @hornets
On this day in 1988, Charles Barkley is called for charging at the buzzer and the expansion Hornets beat the 76ers 109-107, giving Charlotte its first win against a team over .500.

The Ringer @ringernba
Miles Bridges has made two jumps this season. He’s gone from a guy who gets set up to one who creates his own shot AND sets up other guys.
