Hornets say play-in loss motivation to end playoff drought

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The memory of an embarrassing 144-117 loss to the Indiana Pacers in the NBA play-in game last May is never far from the mind of Miles Bridges and many of his returning Charlotte Hornets teammates.

"Every time I got tired this summer during a drill, I thought about that game," Bridges said. "We can't take any games for granted this season."

Bridges looks back on the loss as a "blessing it disguise" as it has served as a lesson for just how far the Hornets need to go to become a winning franchise. Charlotte hasn't been in a playoff series since the 2015-16 season and hasn't won one in two decades.
