On this Monday night game, the Hornets would not play to this terrible standard. This includes Hornets’ star LaMelo Ball.

LaMelo has best game of the season in Hornets’ victory
The Charlotte Hornets recently suffered a bad loss on national TV to the Boston Celtics, and LaMelo Ball struggled shooting, only going 9-22 shooting and 2-7 from three. In Monday’s game, things would go differently for LaMelo.
Against the Hawks, LaMelo shot 12-19 from the field and 6-10 from three. He scored 30 points in the game while dropping 15 assists.
This was clearly LaMelo’s best game of the season. It was great to see LaMelo play to the level that we know he’s capable of playing. Oh, and the best part was the Hornets won 144-138.
