The Charlotte Hornets have cooled off since their 5-2 start, giving up 122.3 PPG in 3 straight losses.

Head coach James Borrego emphasized the need for defense following last night’s 30 point loss to the Sacramento Kings.

“We’ve got a long way to go defensively,” Borrego said. “That’s got to remain the focus. That’s how we’re going to dig out of this hole. We just have to commit to the defensive end. Building a team like this is not going to happen overnight.”
