Hornets beat Melo-less Knicks 76-71 for 9th win in 11 games

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Brian Roberts believes the Charlotte Hornets are in good hands if Kemba Walker is out for any length of time.

The third-year point guard filled in for Walker and scored 17 points, and the Hornets beat the New York Knicks 76-71 Saturday night for their ninth victory in the last 11 games.

Roberts was 5 of 9 from the field and made all six free throws as the Hornets snapped the Knicks' three-game win streak.
