He's really starting to settle in with Charlotte and is on pace to set a career-high in points.

      Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Blows up for 28 points on Friday

      Batum recorded 28 points (10-17 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 35 minutes during the Hornets' 102-97 loss versus the Bulls on Friday. Batum was magnificent on Friday, sinking five three-pointers and filling up the stat-sheet. He has not shot the ball well from the field consistently yet. However, Batum has brought much-needed outside shooting to the Hornets, as he has connected on 19-of-44 three's thus far, good for 43 percent. The former Blazer is in a contract year, and will be asked to carry a heavy load for the Hornets on both ends of the floor so long as he remains healthy.

      Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Delivers solid showing on Sunday

      Batum posted 16 points (5-14 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, eight assists, two steals, and two blocks in 36 minutes during the Hornets' 94-92 loss versus the Hawks on Sunday. Batum committed only two turnovers, and though his shooting percentage left a little to be desired, this was easily his best performance of the young season. This is a contract year for the French forward, who will be asked to shoulder plenty of responsibility on a team that's missing its defensive ace in Michael Kidd Gilchrist and lacking reliable offensive options outside of Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker. The Hornets are back in action on Tuesday versus the Bulls.
