Get updated Hornets team stats for both offense and defense. The Charlotte Hornets are another team that plays up-tempo basketball, focusing on simply out-scoring opponents rather than playing meaningful defense. Charlotte finished third in points per game, fifth in offensive efficiency, fifth in effective field goal percentage (eFG%), and sixth in three-point percentage (3P%); however, it was also in the bottom five in the league in opponent points per game and opponent three-point percentage. Ultimately, this made the Hornets a volatile team and they wound up missing the playoffs due to that lack of commitment on the defensive end. It’s hard to see this year being a whole lot different, especially now that Miles Bridges will no longer be with the team.
