This is one of the best NBA seasons in history. Throughout this season, there has been nothing but outstanding performances leading the crowd to go wild with recorders being broken on a regular basis. This time it is the Charlotte Hornets producing the “goods” and breaking yet another record in the NBA.
The Hornets were up against the Bucks today, and they gave the fans “a bang for their buck,” that too, in the match’s first quarter. The Hornets comprehensively emerged as victors of the game with a 109-138 scorecard.
In those 138 points, the team from Charlotte gained a whopping 51 points in the first half and broke the most points in any period record. They are now tied up with the Golden State Warriors for this record as they, too, have 51 points in a quarter, back in 2019, playing against the Denver Nuggets. The 51-pointer record overshadowed the long-held record of 50 points in 1962 by the Syracuse Nationals.
