Here are the scores, updates, and results of the NBA 2021-2022 Regular Season between the Charlotte Hornets (CHA)) vs the Golden State Warriors (GSW) on November 15, 2021 (All times are in Philippine Standard Time) at the Spectrum Center.
Terry Rozier carried the Hornets to win the game against the Golden State Warriors, ending their seven-game winning streak.
Rozier ended the game with 20 points. All of those points were scored in the second half. In addition, Rozier knocked down three three-pointers and had a steal. Ball aided the team with 21 points while Bridges added 22 points and eight boards.
“This says a lot for our team and where we are headed,” Rozier shared. “We are trying to go places and get our organization like theirs. This is a great step to where we think we want to go.”
Their veteran, Gordon Hayward, did not have a great game, scoring only 10 points while only hitting four of his 12 attempts from the field. The Warriors locked the forward down all throughout the matchup.
With less than a minute remaining in the fourth quarter, the Warriors made a terrific defensive stop on Rozier as they force a jump ball. Warriors’ Green and Rozier were against each other on the center of the court for the jump ball. The result seems to be obvious, which is Green winning the crucial situation, but unexpectedly, Rozier outleaped the forward and had the possession, securing the defeat of the opposing team. As a result, they intentionally foul the skilled guard and allowed a pair of free throws that Rozier calmly makes as the extends lead to four points.
“I think it is more like the timing of the ball,” Rozier shared. “… I definitely wanted it because I had just turned the ball over and it was like everybody in the whole gym was looking at No. 3. I just wanted to try to make a play for our team and it worked out.”
According to Green, the referee was talking to both of the players, which caught him off-guard.
“He was like, ‘I’m going to throw the ball all the way to the top, it’s going all the way…’ and then boom!'” Warriors’ Green said. “And I’m like, ‘Oh, (crap)!’ But like I said, I have to get that jump regardless of the situation.”
Andrew Wiggins ended the game with a stellar performance as he scored 28 points while shooting 12-19 for his team, closing the game with decent efficiency. Stephen Curry added 24 points and ten dimes, finishing the game with a double-double. However, the two-time MVP only converted three of his 13 attempts from beyond the three-point arc.
All throughout the matchup, the Warriors played magnificently, but it was not enough to continue their seven-game winning streak. Moreover, the matchup had 25 lead changes.
In the fourth quarter, Kelly Oubre Jr. of the Hornets received a double-technical after complaining about a non-call on a driving lay-up.
