Hornets Out of Key in Jazz Loss


Friday night’s 95-83 loss to the Utah Jazz was another typical loss for the Hornets, marked by youth and inconsistency. Our bench went 2-of-25 from the field, with Ryan Anderson’s 10 misses leading the way. We didn’t get a lot of our starters either, especially after Eric Gordon got into a shouting match with coach Monty Williams. The result was a very unbalanced offense to compliment our mediocre defense. The Hornets fell to 26-50, the sixth-worst record in the league.

 

Details are scarce on the Eric Gordon situation, though multiple reports indicate the confrontation was very loud and animated. Monty Williams reportedly calmly expressed dissatisfaction with something to Gordon, but then “went absolutely insane” when Gordon talked back, having to be held back by assistant coach Randy Ayers. Gordon finished with seven points in 17 minutes.

 

There are exactly three positives to take away from this game: Greivis Vasquez, Anthony Davis, and Robin Lopez. Each had tough matchups (Mo Williams, Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson, respectively) and rose to the occasion by outplaying them, shooting efficiently and rebounding the ball. Davis is particular bounced back from his recent lethargic play with 24 points on 10-of-16 shooting plus 12 rebounds. He led all Hornets in field goal attempts, which we can only hope will be the pattern over the next three years.

 

We are still holding out hope that Xavier Henry will turn into a servicable NBA role player, but tonight’s 0-for-5 shooting certainly does not help his case. As for Ryan Anderson’s beyond-terrible night — these things happen to shooters.

 

The tanking Phoenix Suns will look to extend their losing streak to nine when the Hornets visit Sunday. The roadtrip will continue versus the Lakers, who are neck-and-neck with the Jazz for the Western Conference’s final playoff spot.
