AP Sports Writer

CLEVELAND (AP) — Miles Bridges scored 30 points, Kelly Oubre Jr. added 25 and the Charlotte Hornets took advantage of Cleveland’s sloppiness to open the fourth quarter in a 123-112 victory, wrecking the Cavaliers’ home opener. The Hornets only led by one entering the final 12 minutes before outscoring the Cavs 19-2 in the first 3:27, when Cleveland turned the ball over seven times. Gordon Hayward made two 3-pointes in the decisive run as Charlotte moved to 2-0. Hayward finished with 18 points and LaMelo Ball had 17 for the Hornets. The pair combined for 58 against Indiana in the opener. Collin Sexton scored 33 points and rookie Evan Mobley had 13 for the Cavs.
