Gibson scored 11 points (5-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and added five assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 27 minutes during Thursday's 97-87 loss to the Hornets.

After a hot breakout in his first few games, Gibson had faded almost completely out of the rotation. In the two games before Thursday, he totaled only seven minutes. With Seth Curry (knee) out Thursday, Gibson once again saw big minutes, with modest results. In every game where Gibson plays double-digit minutes, he has made it to the free throw line at least twice - though he missed both attempts Thursday, he entered the game averaging 79.2 percent on the season. In each of those games, he has also added at least seven points, and at least two assists.
