Nicolas Batum helped the Hornets to victory over the Hawks on Friday night with 19 points, four rebounds, eight assists, a steal and three 3-pointers.
This type of shooting and scoring has been hard to come by for Batum owners this season but he’s now delivered twice in the last four games. Last Saturday, he dropped 26 on the Heat and it’s nice to see him find his shot tonight, giving hope that it can become a more regular occurrence. He wasn’t the only Hornet that had above average scoring tonight. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist stepped up with 19 points on his own with five rebounds, two assists and two steals.
