Hornets Shooting for Better Start, ‘Urgency’ Against Warriors

The Charlotte Hornets will look to rebound from a tough homestand-opening loss on Monday evening as they close out their season series with the Golden State Warriors beginning tonight at 7 PM EST at Spectrum Center.

After falling behind by 20 at halftime, the Hornets rallied to take a 104-97 lead over Phoenix with 1:11 remaining two nights ago, but the Suns responded with a late 12-0 run to steal away the win. Although the finish will be what resonates the most, Head Coach James Borrego stressed the reoccurring poor starts to games can’t continue being habitual.

“We’re not starting games in the first half or first quarter with the right presence, urgency and competitiveness,” he said after the loss.
