The Memphis Grizzlies will be going on the road on Saturday to take on the Charlotte Hornets, who were impressive in their opener. The Grizzlies will be playing in their third game of the season, while the Hornets will be playing their second straight home game to start the campaign.
Last season, the Grizzlies and the Hornets split their two-game regular season series against each other. Charlotte beat the Grizzlies 92-89 at home in their first matchup, but Memphis got the last laugh by blowing them out 111-89 later in the season.
In their game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night, the Hornets scored 32 fourth-quarter points to come back and force overtime, then beat them 108-106 in the extra period. They only made six of their 21 three-point attempts in that win, but they made up for it by outrebounding the Bucks 50-35.
Charlotte's top player in that game against the Bucks was Kemba Walker, who scored a game-high 26 points and also made the key shots in the fourth quarter and overtime to help them get the win. Center Al Jefferson did his part by scoring 14 points and grabbing 10 rebounds, while power forward Marvin Williams went 8-for-12 from the field to finish with 19 points and four boards. Their best bench performance came from center Cody Zeller, who had 11 points and a steal.
