The Bobcats seemed to have things pretty much figured out, jumping to a 21-point lead in the second quarter on the strong play of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. But then it all fell apart and the Hornets roared back for the win despite finishing with zero fast break points and a deficit in points in the paint of 26 points.
Gordon fueled New Orleans despite not shooting particularly well, by getting to the free throw line with a vengeance.
Charlotte tried to stem the tide late, but time would not permit their last breath at a comeback and the 18th-straight loss was complete.
