The Charlotte Hornets are 2-0 for the first time since the beginning of the 2016-17 season where they started 6-1.  Although the hornets almost lost their season opener to the Indiana Pacers, a game in which they rallied from 15+ points down to get the one point victory.  Lamelo Ball has lived up to every single bit of the hype that came with him when he was drafted.

The bench has been a spark for this team, something that hasn’t been the case in the last few years.  With the additions of Mason Plumlee and Kelly Oubre I know it’s only been 2 games but if the Hornets can stay healthy this season I believe they can make a serious playoff run.
