The Charlotte Hornets blew a 21-point lead against the visiting Indiana Pacers, and suffered a 103-102 loss on George Hill’s baseline floater Sunday.
Hornets head coach Steve Clifford took the blame for the loss, saying that his squad was “terribly coached.”
Per the Charlotte Observer:
“We just played as bad a basketball as we played all year,” Clifford bemoaned. “We were totally disorganized – random, awful basketball on both ends of the floor.”
Pacers point guard George Hill got Brian Roberts and Cody Zeller discombobulated in a pick-and-roll. Hill was able to drive baseline, seemingly for a kick-out to a jump shooter. […] Then suddenly Hill spun 180 degrees toward the basket to see … nothing but basket.
“I was pretty surprised,” Hill said. “This is money. That’s my shot.”
