After last season, where the Charlotte Hornets made the NBA Play-In Tournament, expectations for this season were to make the NBA playoffs, but as a top six in the Eastern Conference. As of today, they are currently spotted in the fifth seed in the East and have scored impressive wins over the Brooklyn Nets, the Golden State Warriors, and the Washington Wizards twice.  To talk about the Hornet’s fast start, Brian Geisinger joined Wilson & Norfleet earlier today and when asked about their first 20 games, Geisinger replied: “They’ve exceeded my expectations a little bit.” Geisinger would go on talk about the play of Miles Bridges, and why he believes the Hornets as currently constructed, are built to be contenders moving forward. Of the 20 games played so far, Charlotte has only played 8 in Spectrum Center, posting a 6-2 mark. The Hornets are on the road once again tomorrow night in Orlando, before coming home Friday to host the T-Wolves. After Friday’s home game against Minnesota, Charlotte will be back on the road, for four games to end the month of November, and the start of December. This all sets up for the Hornets to be at home after the calendar turns to 2022, as they will look to make a push and solidify themselves as a top-six team in the East.
