Hornets set franchise record with 152 points in rout of Pacers; Kelly Oubre Jr. scores 39

The Charlotte Hornets defeated the Indiana Pacers 158-126 on Wednesday night, setting the franchise record for most points ever scored in a single game. Charlotte’s total is the highest in the NBA this season, topping the Grizzlies’ 152-point game against the Thunder on Dec. 2

Hornets forward Kelly Oubre Jr. led the way with 39 points while shooting 10-of-15 from 3-point range. Guard LaMelo Ball added 29 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds for Charlotte. At 20 years and 157 days old, he is the second-youngest player in NBA history to reach their fifth career triple-double.

Goga Bitadze and Isaiah Jackson both scored 17 points for a depleted Indiana squad. The Pacers were without Myles Turner, Malcolm Brogdon, Domantas Sabonis, TJ Warren and TJ McConnell.

Charlotte’s win broke a two-game skid. Indiana has now lost three games in a row.
