Danny Green has had a tough go of if so far for the Philadelphia 76ers but had his best game of the season Saturday night in their 127–112 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

Green scored 13 points, made 3 of 6 3-point attempts and dished out four assists to produce a season-high game score of 10.9. He contributed to Philadelphia’s total of 16 3-pointers in the game.

“We were shooting well because we’re getting open shots,” Green said. “I think most teams will shoot well if you swing the ball and find the open man. Most uncontested shots are a lot easier. Obviously, we know the warm is going to turn. We’re going to have some lows or some lapses or phases where we don’t shoot as well. But at least we’re getting the best shot for our team.”

The most consistent Tar Heel so far in the NBA season has to be Harrison Barnes, who had another good game in his Sacramento Kings’ 102–92 loss at Houston. He collected 19 points, seven rebounds and a steal for a 14.6 game score.

On a night when most of the UNC alums in the NBA either had the night off, didn’t play or had off nights Cole Anthony was held to a season-low two points and Reggie Bullock scored four.
