The Charlotte Hornet’s new star Tony Parker dominated the end of last night’s game by pounding 17 of his 19 points during the last 6 minutes of the game, giving the Hornets a final score of 100-87.
The nail-biting win gave Charlotte it’s needed revenge against the Brooklyn Nets after Thursday night’s double-overtime loss.
Parker seemed to be untouchable in the final minutes of the game as he rolled past defenders and sunk almost every shot he took.

“I think the fourth quarter fuels a number of players,” Borrego said. “Not every player, but the special ones are fueled by the fourth. It’s winning time, and both (Parker and Walker) are fueled by it.”
Kemba Walker scored 29 points and made seven 3-pointers — most of them playing off the ball — and the Nets seemed to have no answer for the combination.
The Hornets closed out last night’s win to pull even at .500 on the season.
Next, they will now face off against the Wizards tomorrow night.
