The Charlotte Hornets defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder 78-74 on Day 3 of Orlando Summer League. The Thunder's shot weren't falling, and trailed the vast majority of the game because of it. Semaj Christon kept Oklahoma City within striking distance with 23 points, behind a 14-18 showing from the free throw line. Christon also played solid defense, grabbing 4 steals.

The Hornets were lead by Aaron Harrison, who scored the last 7 points for Charlotte. Oklahoma City pulled within 3 points with under a minute to go, but Harrison hit a leaning pull-up jump shot with Semaj Christon right in his face. Scottie Wilbekin made a layup and a free throw that gave OKC some hope, but Harrison sank two free throws with 4 seconds left to seal the win.

Oklahoma City plays their next game on Wednesday at 4 PM CT.
