Milwaukee Bucks coach Jason Kidd called it a trap game. His team, returning home from a 2-2 Western road swing, lacked energy and fell to the Charlotte Hornets 108-101 on Tuesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Kemba Walker scored 27 points and Gerald Henderson added 20 for the Hornets (10-19).
Brandon Knight led all scorers with 34 points for the Bucks (14-15). Khris Middleton added 12 points and Giannis Antetokounmpo had 11 as the Bucks led by two points (56-54) at halftime.
The Bucks take the next two days off before facing Atlanta on Friday.
