New Orleans Hornets (13-27) head coach Monty Williams said his team lost their identity Saturday night against the Golden State Warriors (24-15). After all, his team prides itself on defense. However, they found themselves neck deep in an offensive shootout last night, and in the end, Golden State won 116-112.

Anthony Davis (pictured) played great in all but one area…the free throw line. While he scored 20 points, pulled down 12 rebounds, and blocked 4 shots, he went 5-7 from the charity stripe, including two big misses in the final two minutes of a tight game.

“Put that on me,” Davis said afterward. “I should not be missing free throws like that. With that, we’re not going to win.”

Eric Gordon scored 23, Ryan Anderson had 19, and Al-Farouq Aminu added 14. Greivis Vasquez finished with 15 assists.

Former Hornet Jarrett Jack had a big night for the Warriors, finishing with 25 points and 12 assists.

“He was special,” Warriors coach Mark Jackson said of Jack. “He was awfully good. Obviously there was something extra coming back and playing against former teammates. He made big plays for us.”

The loss is only the 2nd in the last 8 games for New Orleans.

Next up, a matinee on MLK day tomorrow. Tip-off versus the Sacramento Kings is set for noon.
