Kings Drop Ice Cold Hornets
As starting shooting guard Eric Gordon (pictured left) missed his 3rd straight game for the New Orleans Hornets, he watched his team struggle to make a single 3 pointer in Sunday night’s loss to the Sacramento Kings.
In the 96-80 defeat, the Hornets were 0-15 from beyond the arc. That marks the second straight game in which New Orleans had major issues with outside shooting. Gordon is not expected to return to the lineup for tonight’s game in Utah. Head coach Monty Williams hopes to possibly have him back for Wednesday’s home game against Philadelphia. Until then, the Hornets need better offensive production from their backcourt of Jarrett Jack and Marco Belinelli.
Tip-off for tonight’s game against the Jazz is set for 8:00.
