NOTE: The Charlotte Hornets - Philadelphia Bell game was not televised due to an engineers strike. TV crews refused to cross the picket lines to set up needed equipment, so WRET, WGHP, and WCTG had to cancel their 7:30 PM telecast.

NOTE: The 1975 Charlotte Hornets Week 12 Game Summary was researched by Richie Franklin, Jim Cusano, Chuck Gardner and Chris Gmyrek.
