A week from now Sherrick McManis Jersey , the Charlotte Hornets and Orlando Magic will be in the early stages of reviewing how their seasons turned south.

On Friday, the teams will get together trying to get a win when Charlotte visits Orlando.

Charlotte (34-45) is concluding its second consecutive losing season since winning 48 games in 2015-16. The Hornets must win out to surpass last season’s win total.

Inconsistency has plagued the Hornets for most of the season. They are on a four-game losing streak after winning their previous four. It is their fifth losing streak of at least four games this season.

The Hornets will likely get a new general manager in the coming days. Rich Cho was fired Feb. 20 when the team was 24-33 and the team is working on an agreement with former Los Angeles Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak, who holds four championships and like owner Michael Jordan played collegiately at North Carolina.

One thing any new GM will enjoy is Dwight Howard and Kemba Walker’s production, though the guard is struggling recently.

Howard owns the team record previously held by Larry Johnson in 1992-93 after posting his 50th double-double with 23 points and 17 rebounds in Tuesday’s 120-114 loss at Chicago. He has seven straight double-doubles and the Hornets are 25-25 when Howard gets double figures in points and rebounds.

“I do think — and he knows this — he’s still got a lot left,” Charlotte coach Steve Clifford told the team’s website last month. “You can see it physically. For him to get the respect that he wants and deserves, he’s going to have to be on a team that plays well.

“Ultimately, it comes down to that. I know that he wants to go out on a high note and there’s a lot of things for players that are outside of what they can be accountable for. I think for him, that’s what everybody’s looking for.”

Walker scored nine points Tuesday, marking a season-high third straight game with fewer than 20 points. Since his 46-point game on March 22 against Memphis, Walker is averaging 17 points, shooting 43.4 percent and making 28.9 percent of 3-pointers.

Orlando (24-54) is concluding a fifth 50-loss season in the last six years since trading Howard in 2012. The Magic are 16-50 since opening the season with eight wins in 12 games.

Orlando is attempting to get a season-high three straight wins for the third time. The Magic also won three straight Oct. 21-27 and Feb. 5-8.

Orlando completed a successful back-to-back set by posting a 105-100 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday. After rolling to a 97-73 win in New York, the Magic did enough to win despite shooting 27.6 percent from 3-point range.

Orlando is among the worst 3-point shooting teams in the league. Since making 18 in a win over Milwaukee on March 14 http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/stephen-hauschka-jersey , the Magic are shooting 28.5 percent (82 of 287) from long range in their last nine games.

Aaron Gordon rebounded from a 3-of-15 showing by scoring 20 points on 8 of 16 from the field Wednesday. Before then, he was shooting 30.6 percent in his previous four games.

“It was an important night for him because he’s had a tough couple of games lately and we’ve been talking one-on-one about getting him going, taking the right shots and playing within himself more and letting the game come to him rather than forcing,” Orlando coach Frank Vogel told reporters. “He did a great job with that tonight and as a result, shot a high percentage.”

The story for Orlando on Wednesday was how some players who were in the G League performed.

Jamel Artis scored 18 points after getting 16 in New York. Along with Khem Birch and Rodney Purvis, the trio scored 16 of Orlando’s 28 points in the fourth.

They will likely see more time, especially if Nikola Vucevic rests like he did Wednesday.

“We do have a lot of chemistry because we’ve all been playing in the G League together,” Artis told reporters. “Down in crunch time, we know what each other’s tendencies are, and we like to play together. We’re not selfish and we’re all unselfish. We ended out the game and I think that (unselfishness) helped us get the win.”

Charlotte has won the last 10 meetings since Dec. 16, 2015.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix returned to Lambeau Field for Green Bay Packers minicamp after the safety cited personal issues for missing some voluntary offseason workouts.

Clinton-Dix said that the death of his godmother following a heart attack hit him hard. She was a school principal who played a formative role in Clinton-Dix’s upbringing.

”I learned everything. I learned the principles of being a young man, not taking anything for granted Youth Kevin Labanc Jersey ,” he said.

Having the opportunity to spend time with family meant a lot to him.

”But, you know, my family means everything to me,” Clinton-Dix said after practice Tuesday. ”If I have the opportunity to be home with them, I would love to be home with them.”

The safety’s absence during some voluntary workouts in May and early June was notable given that the Packers have a new defensive coordinator, Mike Pettine. A Pro Bowler in 2016, Clinton-Dix is part of the core of a defense hoping to improve following a lackluster 2017 season.

He’s also entering the option year of the rookie contract signed after being drafted in the first round in 2014 out of Alabama.

Asked why he missed some of the workouts, Clinton-Dix first said ”family issues,” then winked .

Asked if his absence wasn’t contract related, the fifth-year pro replied ”personal issues.”

Later, Clinton-Dix said he had no deadline to get a new deal done. He doesn’t sound like someone who plans to hold out, either.

”What would it do Authentic Connor Brickley Jersey , though?” Clinton-Dix said. ”You’re just wasting your time, really. You’re getting fined and fined and fined. I’m a guy that, I need my money, man. That’s why I’m here now. I need my money.”

Clinton-Dix was in Green Bay for three weeks at the start of the offseason program in April. He had his team-issued tablet computer the entire time while he was away to watch practices.

If there were any questions, Clinton-Dix would contact position coach Joe Whitt. A member of the coaching staff would get back to him with an answer, or send another video clip to help.

”Well, you guys can take attendance. It’s a mandatory minicamp, so things step up. But I feel really good, Ha Ha all the way through,” coach Mike McCarthy said. ”We’ve had change, we’ve transitioned through that.”

McCarthy followed recent tradition and excused 16 veterans with six or more years of experience from this week’s minicamp, including quarterback Aaron Rodgers. So practices this week can especially help rookies or younger players lower on the depth chart make impressions on the coaching staff.

Still Sam Reinhart Jersey , any time on the practice field with a player with Pro Bowl potential such as Clinton-Dix can help as the Packers hope to finish the offseason program strong before going on summer break.

”Scheme or not, all you’ve got to do is (say) `You’ve got this, you’ve got this’ and he’s going to go out there and play,” second-year cornerback Kevin King said. ”Playbook-wise, I’m not worried about that. Ha Ha is going to be Ha Ha.”

Always confident, Clinton-Dix used word play when asked if minicamp was a time when he could play catch-up. Pettine’s scheme appears to play to Clinton-Dix’s strength and allow him to spend more time closer to the line of scrimmage, rather than 20 yards out.

”I love ketchup. Love it on my hot dogs, love it on my hamburgers and I love it on my fries,” Clinton-Dix said. ”Catch-up won’t be a problem.”
