The New Orleans Hornets lost their 20th home game of the season last night, falling to the Golden State Warriors 101-92.
Jarrett Jack's first career triple double (17 pts, 11 ast, 10 reb) was one of the few bright spots for the hometeam. Chris Kaman and Xavier Henry each chipped in with 13 points apiece.
New Orleans (11-35) completely dominated the paint, outscoring Golden State 60-24 in that category. With such a dominating performance in the frount court, how did the Hornets lose?
Perimeter defense was the issue for the Hornets on Wednesday night. One reason the Warriors stayed out of the paint is because they were red hot from the outside. Golden State (19-25) nailed 14 three pointers on 29 attempts.
Now the Hornets must turn around and battle the former face of their franchise. Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers come to the Hive tonight for a 7:00 matchup.
