Blazers Josh Hart vs Charlotte 122622

Portland Trail Blazers forward Josh Hart goes up for a layup against the Charlotte Hornets on Dec. 26 at the Moda Center.

With the defending champs on the brink in the fourth quarter, the Portland Trail Blazers (18-17) went frozen cold and blew an 8-point lead in the 118-112 loss at Golden State.

Jusuf Nurkic missed the game with an illness, leaving the Blazers with only eight full-contract players available.
