NBA Daily: Graham Sinks 9 Threes Including Game Winner to Power Hornets Past Knicks 103-102


PhilBoxing.com




Boracay Island, Philippines – Breakout sophomore guard Devonte’ Graham bounced back from a dismal 2-for-12 shooting from the rainbow territory the night before to wax hot with career high 9 threes, leading the Charlotte Hornets in edging the New York Knicks 103-102 on Saturday night (Sunday morning, Philippine time) at the Madison Square Garden Arena in New York City, NY.

What made it all so sweet for the 24-year-old 2nd round pick of the 2018 NBA Rookie Draft was that his ninth 3-pointer was the game-clinching shot to seal the victory for Charlotte.

That deciding three came off an assist from rookie forward PJ Washington, who also stuffed the stat sheet with 19 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block. Terry Rozier also added 16 markers for the Hornets, who improved to 6 wins against 7 losses.

RJ Barrett, the third overall pick of the recent NBA Rookie Draft, led New York with 22 points. Sophomore center Mitchell Robinson had a double-double of 17 points and 12 rebounds off-the-bench for the Knicks, who absorbed their 10th loss in thirteen outings thus far this season.

New York will wrap up their three-game home stand against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night (Tuesday morning, Philippine time).

Meanwhile, the Hornets will travel to Toronto to face the defending champions on the same date.

How they scored:

Hornets 103 – Graham 29, Washington 19, Rozier 16, Williams 13, Monk 12, Zeller 7, Biyombo 4, Batum 3

Knicks 102 – Barrett 22, Robinson 17, Morris Sr. 14, Portis 14, Randle 12, Gibson 9, Ntilikina 6, Dotson 4, Knox II 2, Smith Jr. 2
