Hornets Shoot Franchise Low, Fall To Suns
A paltry 28.9% from the field doomed the fleur-de-bees. Shooting guard Eric Gordon, a prolific scorer, missed his second straight game with a bruised right knee. New Orleans could not make-up for his absence, as they struggled to find points on the hardwood.
Power forward Carl Landry did finish with 17 points, the majority of which came from the charity stripe and on dunks. Emeka Okafor finished with 16 rebounds and Marco Belinelli pulled down a career-high 10.
The Hornets now leave NOLA for a two-game road trip. It begins on the first day of the new year against the Sacramento Kings. Tip-off is set for 8:00.
