Less than 24 hours after a spirited win that lifted them up to eighth place and put destiny in their own hands, the Charlotte Hornets were back at it again Monday,

Denver posed a different kind of challenge for the Hornets, relying more on its inside strength to impose its will.

That’s an area of weakness for the Hornets and their inability to contain the Nuggets on the interior paired with a cold-shooting fourth quarter doomed them in a 113-109 loss to at Spectrum Center

 “It’s playoff time, so we’ve just got to get better and learn the little things that we could have did better at the end of the game,” Miles Bridges said.

 “Like rebounding, not making dumb fouls and taking care of the ball. We didn’t do a good job of taking care of the ball.

 I had five turnovers and that’s unacceptable. So we’ve just got to get better each game. 

We have a small margin or error, but we’ve got to fix it now.” Otherwise, the Hornets (39-37) could drop in the standings as quickly as they’ve ascended.
