Hornets star youngster Devonte’ Graham makes history in blowout win

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Pretty much every team that has taken on the injury-plagued Golden State Warriors have had some fun at the expense of the Western Conference’s worst team.

That did not change Wednesday night with Steve Kerr’s squad getting blown out on the road by the Charlotte Hornets, 106-91.

Among the Hornets players to step up in this one was up-and-coming second-year guard Devonte’ Graham. He made history a couple times en route to dropping 33 points.

As noted, he tied a single-game Hornets record with 10 made three-pointers in a brilliant overall performance.

Graham also became just the fourth player in NBA history to record 30-plus points without making a single two-pointer, joining the likes of Joe Dumars, Jerry Stackhouse and Chauncey Billups in that random category.

Traded from the Atlanta Hawks to Charlotte on draft night back in 2018, the former second-round pick is having a breakout 2019-20 campaign.

Graham entered Wednesday’s game averaging 18.0 points and 7.7 assists on 40% shooting from distance.

There’s going to be plenty more of where this came from moving forward in the youngster’s career. That’s for sure.
