The Charlotte Hornets will face a stern test when they take on the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center on Sunday in an enticing 2021-22 NBA season matchup.

The Hornets are unbeaten so far this season, having won both their opening games. They defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 123-112 in their previous outing. Miles Bridges (30 points) and Kelly Oubre Jr. (25 points) shone for James Borrego's side in that contest.

Meanwhile, after a dismal loss against the Milwaukee Bucks on opening night, the Nets bounced back to win their last game 114-109 against the Philadelphia 76ers. Kevin Durant notched up a triple-double, tallying 29 points, 15 rebounds and 12 assists to help his side get over the line. Steven Nash's side are now 1-1 for the season.
