Recap: Hornets 64, Nets 55

All it took was two big shots down the stretch to make up for an otherwise modest performance.
Aaron Harrison was 2-of-8 from the field and had just missed a pair of free throws before he converted on a driving layup and deep 3-pointer to help secure the Charlotte Hornets' 64-55 win over the Brooklyn Nets in Southwest Airlines Orlando Pro Summer League action on Tuesday.
Harrison finished with 11 points, six rebounds and four assists. This stat line comes two days after he out-dueled his brother, Andrew, with 16 points and eight assists in a loss to the Grizzlies.
"He's a very confident player," Hornets Summer League coach Patrick Ewing said about Harrison. "He's doing a fantastic job. He's running the ball club. He's taking his shot when he has it and he's also sharing it with the other guys on the team."
Troy Daniels, who Charlotte acquired at the trade deadline last season as part of the Mo Williams deal with Minnesota, recorded 16 points and 14 rebounds.
Frank Kaminsky had his worst shooting performance to this point of Summer League. He made just 4-of-11 shots from the field, missed his only two 3-point attempts and finished with 11 points.
Fellow 2015 first round draft pick Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, who the Nets acquired from the Blazers on draft night as part of the Mason Plumlee trade, didn't get into a rhythm either. He scored two points on 1-of-6 shooting in 21 minutes.
Charlotte (1-2) controlled the glass with a 52-35 rebounding advantage. The Hornets continue their Summer League play when they take on the Orlando Magic White squad on Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET. Brooklyn (0-3) is off Wednesday and returns to action on Thursday at 3 p.m. also against Magic White.
