Hornets Outduel Bulls In Preseason Home Finale, 110-104
CHARLOTTE -- Jeremy Lamb and Kemba Walker combined for 36 points, 13 rebounds, and Nicolas Batum added 12 rebounds as the Hornets handled the Bulls in the team's second-to-last preseason game, 110-104.
"Lamb's been pretty solid for us on both sides of the ball," said coach James Borrego. "He rebounding for us. He's pushing the pace and playmaking for us. I've been really happy with his floor game."
The Hornets jumped all over the Bulls thanks to an 11-point first quarter from Jeremy Lamb.
"We just moved the ball, we just hit shots," said Lamb. "We kind of got sloppy in the second half, but we'll clean it up."
Walker was followed by Lamb (16), Cody Zeller (14), Monk (13) Marvin Williams (12) and Willy Hernangomez (11) in double-digit scoring.
The Hornets will now have four days between games before flying to Dallas to take on the Mavericks at 7 p.m. on Friday to close the preseason.
