Charles Barkley is a lot of things, Nostradamus, he is not. The NBA’s first game of the play-in tournament ended with the Hornets losing to the Pacers 144-117. They never had a lead. They trailed by double digits for most of the game, and it felt like it was over before it started.
That might be because Charles guaranteed a Hornets win.
The ‘Inside the NBA’ host made one of his famous “guarantees.”
