CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Kemba Walker scored 22 points and Frank Kaminsky added 16 to lead the Charlotte Hornets to their fourth victory in six games, 99-88 over the Utah Jazz on Friday night.

Marvin Williams scored 15 and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist 12 for Charlotte, which won despite an off night for Dwight Howard, who scored just two first-half points. Howard finished with eight points on 2-of-9 shooting. He also went 4 for 10 from the foul line.

Nicolas Batum and Jeremy Lamb added 11 points apiece for Charlotte.

Donovan Mitchell scored 35 points for Utah, which has lost 14 of 19. Rodney Hood added 15 and Royce O'Neale 11 for Utah, which had been 10-3 when holding opponents to 100 points or fewer.

Mitchell, whose father played college baseball at Charlotte, had 22 points at halftime on 7-of-12 shooting for the Jazz, who shot better from 3 in the first half (46. percent) than from the field (39 percent).
