BBNBA: MKG leads Hornets to a blow out win

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist hasn’t had the easiest time in the NBA getting his offensive game to click. An elite defender, Kidd-Gilchrist has found himself keeping a starting job for the Charlotte Hornets due to his ability to do the little things that don’t always show up on the stat sheet. However, last night was just the opposite for the former Cat.

Kidd-Gilchrist led the Hornets in scoring last night on their way to a big win over John Wall, Jodie Meeks, and the rest of the Washington Wizards. MKG finished with 21 points on 8-11 shooting, 4 rebounds, 3 steals, and 2 assists. Charlotte beat Washington by the score of 133-109.
