ABOUT THE HAWKS (3-6): Young has made an immediate impact and is averaging team-best marks of 19.1 points and 7.9 assists. He has scored 20 or more points on four occasions and reached double figures in all nine games but his 3-point shooting (18-of-56) has been inconsistent. Forward Taurean Prince ranks second in scoring at 15.4 points and he tallied 15 points against Miami after averaging just seven on 7-of-35 shooting over a three-game stretch.
ABOUT THE HORNETS (5-5): Backup guard Jeremy Lamb scored a season-best 19 points against Cleveland and has reached double digits in eight of the first 10 games. Lamb is averaging 11.9 points while sparking the second unit and coach James Borrego is pleased with the 26-year-old’s production. “I thought he was fantastic,” Borrego told reporters after the win over the Cavaliers. “Just his aggressiveness and a lot of it wasn’t just settling for shots, he was getting to the rim, into the paint, he put pressure on the defense.”
1. The Hornets won last season’s four meetings by an average of 13.5 points.
2. Charlotte PG Tony Parker has scored in double digits in each of his past five games and is averaging 16.2 points during the stretch.
