New Orleans Hornets Team Report – November 14
=== New Orleans Hornets Team Report – November 14 ===
(Sports Network) – The Hornets’ early season woes continued Saturday, as
they fell 94-91 to Milwaukee at the Bradley Center.
This is the worst start in franchise history for the Hornets (0-6), who are
the lone winless team in the Western Conference. The Hornets played without
their best player, Baron Davis, who is suffering from a strained lower back.
Darrell Armstrong led the Hornets with 21 points and five assists. He nailed
five three pointers for New Orleans, which was 8-of-16 from behind the arc but
fell just short.
David Wesley had 12 points, 10 assists and six rebounds for the Hornets.
The Bucks led 51-40 at halftime, and were up by as many as 15 points in the
third quarter, at 57-42 with 10 1/2 minutes left to play.
But the Hornets roared back. An Alex Garcia three-pointer punctuated a 19-4
run that gave New Orleans a 79-75 lead with 6:15 left in regulation.
The game was a see-saw affair from that point forward, and Redd’s jumper with
70 seconds left put the Bucks up for good, at 86-84. The Hornets did have a
chance to win it at the buzzer, but Wesley’s three-pointer wasn’t true.
The Chicago Bulls are the only other winless team in the NBA, as they fell to
0-4 Saturday night with a loss to the Clippers.
The Hornets placed forward Rodney Rogers on the injured list before the game
with a strained left knee.
