Charlotte has more wins than three teams in the league, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. The Hornets rank dead-last in point-differential, and are approaching historic levels. Their negative-11.8 differential is nearly three points worse than the next closest team (Wizards are currently negative-9.1). Only three teams in league history have ever been worse than a negative-12.0. Friday’s 120-84 loss to the Bucks was the fifth time the Hornets have lost by 30-plus this year. They are also the only team that has not won a game by more than 10 points. On the other side, 27 of their 41 losses have been by at least 10 points.
