Hornets to build up Bridges as Suns settle in Charlotte

Charlotte rookie forward Miles Bridges has had a mostly quiet rookie season. The Hornets are hoping that might be changing.

Bridges was part of a big bench effort Thursday night, scoring 15 points on 6 of 9 shooting in a 114-95 home win over the Sacramento Kings. For Bridges, the 12th overall pick in the draft out of Michigan State, it was just his ninth double-figure scoring game of the season.

The bench scored 60 points against the Kings, a positive development for Charlotte (21-23), which plays host to the Phoenix Suns (11-35) on Saturday.
