The Hornets were led one more night by LaMelo Ball, which continues to add arguments for his candidacy for Rookie of the Year. The Californian guard finished with 30 points on his account, plus eight assists, for a team that has not won in Portland since March 2008.
The first-year player has established himself as the leader of the Hornets in the absence of Gordon Hayward and since taking over as the team’s starter, he has averaged 20.8 points, 6.1 rebounds and 6.8 assists. Numbers that only Oscar Robertson managed to sign in his rookie season in the NBA.
