Recap: Charlotte vs. New Orleans

Charleston, SC (Sports Network) - Ryan Anderson's lay up with less than a minute to play proved to be the difference, as the New Orleans Hornets defeated the Charlotte Bobcats, 90-87, to claim their third straight victory of the preseason.

Anderson scored two of his 14 points on the lay up to give New Orleans the lead. Bobcats center Brendan Haywood had a chance to tie the game when he was fouled with six seconds to play, but he missed both free-throw attempts. Charlotte then fouled Al-Farouq Aminu, who connected on both of his free throws to account for the final margin.

Anthony Davis, the No.1 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, finished with 12 points and nine rebounds for New Orleans, while Lance Thomas and Roger Mason Jr. both contributed double-digit scoring efforts off the bench.

Byron Mullens and Ben Gordon each scored 15 points apiece for the Bobcats, who have dropped their last two games, both to the Hornets.
