In a game that mattered to Charlotte, the Hornets went up against a shorthanded Lakers team Friday night and lost handily, 129-115. Charlotte is now two games out of the eight seed in the East with seven left to play, they couldn’t afford to lose to the lottery-bound Lakers.
Walker is now 0-28 in head-to-head matchups with LeBron over the course of his career. You read that right, 0-28. There are 24 regular season losses plus in 2014 the Miami Heat and LeBron swept the Hornets in the playoffs.
NBA Twitter had a little fun with that.
To be fair, in almost all those meetings LeBron was on the superior team and was the favorite. This number should be lopsided, but not one upset? On Friday night, despite being on the road the Hornets were two-point favorites, but LeBron dropped 27 and that was the game, despite LeBron not exactly being impressed with the Lakers’ roster.
