It wasn't even close
Hornets 93, Kings 67 in front of 19,163. A proper christening for the Ford Center.
Two factors: the Hornets owned the boards, and Sacramento, down only one point after the first quarter, went from indifferent shooting to cold to downright glacial.
Last year's Bees started the season with a 2-29 run. Not gonna happen this year.
