Kemba Walker remains as the face of the Hornets, a role he has embraced despite the franchise's mediocrity.
At both ends of the court, the Charlotte Hornets had too much at the end for the Memphis Grizzlies. Kemba Walker scored 23 points, Marvin Williams hit two key 3-pointers and Bismack Biyombo swatted away a pair of late shots as the Hornets beat the depleted Memphis Grizzlies 100-92 Friday night. Memphis suited up just 10 healthy players and was minus star Mike Conley, who sat because of soreness in his left knee.
The Charlotte Hornets hope to continue to take advantage of a soft pocket in their schedule when they host the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night. The Hornets will be playing the second night of a home back-to-back, still riding the high of a late flurry that produced an improbable 100-92 win over Memphis on Friday. Charlotte (25-26) trailed most of the night and was still down 90-85 with less than five minutes to play before getting consecutive 3-pointers from Marvin Williams in a 11-point run that turned the game around.
