The NBA seems to think Gerald Henderson dunked on his own teammate Bismack Biyombo, but it was Gorgui Dieng who was victimized Sunday in the Charlotte Hornets’ 109-98 road victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Mo Williams led the way against his former squad with 24 points.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Al Jefferson each scored 18 points, and Henderson had 17 as the Hornets snapped a three-game streak.
Per the AP:
“It wasn’t one of those situations where you want to go back and have a good game,” Williams said. “It was more just a game that we really needed to win.”
“We’re going to have to do it for more than 24 minutes to win there,” coach Steve Clifford said. “The locker room felt good. We needed to win a game, especially on the road, and hopefully we can build on it.”
Gorgui Dieng led Minnesota with 16 points and Kevin Martin had 15 points and nine assists. The Wolves led the entire first half. […] “It’s one of those things you play with a lot of energy in the first half, the worst thing that happens, you go into halftime you get a tendency to all of a sudden sit down and you realized, ‘Geez, I’m really tired,'” coach Flip Saunders said. “We didn’t come out with that same energy, the same pace.”
