Hornets Overcome Poor Shooting, Win Again

Over the years, sports analysts have said that the best pitchers in baseball can win even when they don’t have their best stuff. Sunday night in Sacramento, the Hornets didn’t have their best stuff, but still came away with a victory.

New Orleans coach Monty Williams was quick with a one-liner after the Hornets survived an ugly game to match San Antonio for the best record in the NBA.”I don’t think either one of us is going to send this tape to Springfield [the Basketball Hall of Fame] or any other field,” Williams said after the Hornets improved to 11-1 with a 75-71 victory over Sacramento on Sunday. “At this point in the season I don’t even look at the standings. I had no idea we would have this kind of record. Looking at our record, it might be fools’ gold.”

David West had 17 points, and Trevor Ariza added 16 to help the Hornets win their third straight game.

Donte Greene had 15 points and 10 rebounds for Sacramento. The Kings have dropped nine of 10 games since opening the season 3-1.

The Hornets completed a trade Saturday that sent Peja Stojakovic and Jerryd Bayless to Toronto for point guard Jarrett Jack, center David Andersen and guard Marcus Banks. The three new players are expected to join the Hornets on Monday night in Los Angeles for a game against the Clippers.

“I’m excited. J-Jack is like a brother to me. I talk to him on a regular basis,” point guard Chris Paul said. “He brings experience and knows how to play the game. Coming up the bench he will be huge for us.”

While the Hornets could’ve used a  backup point guard off the bench tonight, CP3 came through in the clutch. A good team can truly win any game when they don’t have their good stuff. Despite what Monty Williams might say, the Hornets are a good team. According to their record, they’re the best in the league.
