Charlotte Hornets shooting guard Malik Monk might be wishing he could get to play in Paris every night after he recorded a career-high 31 points in Friday's loss to Milwaukee. He had a second consecutive strong shooting performance with a 10-for-17 record from the field that included three triples, and Monk also managed to add five rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one block to his line in 34 minutes of action off the bench. The 21-year-old guard has been invisible in 2019-20, but he's now recorded a total of 51 points across the last two games. His fantasy stock will be on the rise after this, and he gets a pair of really nice matchups against the Knicks and Wizards next to pick up even more momentum.
Charlotte Hornets point guard Devonte' Graham enjoyed a strong performance from downtown on Friday against Milwaukee, shooting 4-for-9 on his way to 19 points. His overall record from the field was 6-for-13, and he was also able to add seven rebounds, four assists and one steal to his line. Terry Rozier settled for 13 points, six rebounds, five assists, and one steal. Scary Terry has improved a lot since the turn of the year, but Graham remains the most consistent performer in Charlotte. He'll be licking his lips ahead of the next matchup against the Knicks, who are one of the worst defensive teams in the league. Graham had a 29-point performance with nine treys against them in the first meeting of the season.
Charlotte Hornets power forward PJ Washington looked more like a red-hot shooting guard in Monday's loss to Orlando, going 4-for-8 with the three-ball on his way to 19 points. He shot 7-for-12 overall from the field and added seven rebounds with four turnovers. Washington has now shot 50 percent or better from deep in four straight contests. He should get plenty of good looks again in Thursday's matchup against the Bucks, who are giving up a league-high 39.0 three-point shot attempts per game. However, it's far from an easy matchup, with Milwaukee playing high-level defense, which Washington got to feel in person in the previous matchup where he shot only 25 percent from the field and had seven points.
Charlotte Hornets shooting guard Malik Monk ended up as the team's leading scorer in Monday's loss to Orlando, finishing with 20 points on 8-for-13 shooting. Despite the good scoring night, Monk registered an ugly minus-22 rating and the team lost heavily 106-83. Monk looked promising in his first two years in the league, but his minutes have dropped throughout the season and he's even struggling to get 10-plus minutes some nights. With that said, Monk could play a bigger role towards the end of the season, as the Hornets keep slipping further and further away from playoff contention.
Charlotte Hornets forward PJ Washington once again came through with an excellent line and this time it was against the Denver Nuggets. Washington scored 14 points on an efficient 6-for-7 shooting from the floor and added four rebounds with four assists while adding two steals and making a perfect two of two from three. Washington had struggled for a couple of games, but, over his last two outings is averaging 17.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.0 steals, and 1.0 blocks and could easily be still sitting on your waiver wire.
