Speaking of the Hornets, they are one of those teams who just hover just outside the 6th and final play off spot along with the Knicks, Pacers and the Bulls. Despite the loss, they have a not so bad win ratio of 0.469 which if maintained will see them in the post season for 2021. Malik Monk top scored for them in this match with 25 points in a 130-121 losing cause. Golden State blew the Hornets away in the opening half of the match. The Warriors make sure there is always an extra man free for the killer pass inside the arch.So it wont surprise you to note that they were better in the field goal category 61% to 46%. The usual suspects Stephen Curry(29 points) and Kelly Oubre(27 points) were on fire for San Francisco side. The in your face dunk by Oubre with 2 minutes of the first quarter to go, ironically against the Hornets best defensive player PJ Washington(10 rebounds) showed how good Oubre was.
Hornets had their moments too. LaMelo Ball dribbled past Draymond Green like he was not there twice in the second quarter, with 2 minutes and 1 minute 45 of the quarter to go.
