Hawks Handle Hornets

 The New Orleans Hornets followed their best performance of the season with their worst. After defeating the Orlando Magic by 26 on Friday, the Hornets were handled at home by the Atlanta Hawks Sunday night by the score of 94-72. New Orleans shot a dismal 37.5% from the field.

Head coach Monty Williams could not hide his disappointment after the Hornets scored a season-low in their loss.

“I was really disappointed with our effort, especially at home with a day between games,” explained Williams. “We don’t have enough talent to go out there and play one-on-one basketball. We certainly don’t have enough talent to go out there and not play with effort. That was the frustrating part.”

Frustrating is a good word to describe a team that has lost 16 of its last 18 games.

Center Emeka Okafor finished with 13 points and 8 rebounds in the loss. Point guards Jarrett Jack and Greivis Vasquez had 10 each. Vasquez ended the game with 8 assists, tying his career high.

Things don’t get easier for the Hornets. They’ll travel to Miami for a game tonight against the Heat. Tip-off is set for 6:30. It’ll be the second game of four in a five day stretch.
