New Orleans Hornets

  1. Steve Nash likely to return Wednesday against New Orleans

    Mar 15, 2011, 1:01 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Without Steve Nash the last two games, the Suns offense has looked like the preverbal chicken with its head cut off. Sure, plenty of running around but without any direction or understanding. It was ugly. The Suns, who average 109.4 points per 100 possessions on the season, were under 100 for both games. Wednesday they…

  2. Governor admits Louisiana has to pay Hornets $7 million

    Mar 15, 2011, 11:53 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    Part of the deal the Hornets have with the state of Louisiana (which owns their arena) is that if the Hornets do not meet certain revenue benchmarks, the state has to make them up. Gov. Bobby Jindal said Monday the state will have to pay the team about $7 million this season, the Times-Picayune reports.…

  3. Marco Belinelli fined $10,000

    Belinelli_Marco

    The NBA has announced that Marco Belinelli has been fined $10,000 after his flagrant-one foul on the Mavericks’ Shawn Marion was upgraded to a flagrant-two. The foul occurred in the third quarter. If it had been originally ruled a flagrant-two, Belinelli would have been ejected. Instead, Belinelli stayed in the game and scored six points…

  4. Chris Paul returns to practice

    Mar 10, 2011, 5:53 PM EDT

    Paul_Chris

    According to the Associated Press, New Orleans guard Chris Paul is back at practice, but has not yet been cleared to play. Paul suffered a mild concussion last Sunday, and is scheduled to undergo a neurological exam on Friday. Paul’s injury puts the Hornets in a tight spot. The dangers of playing with concussions are…

  5. Dallas coach calls players “soft,” Jason Terry not too fond of that

    Mar 10, 2011, 1:27 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Brown

    If you tuned out last night with Dallas up 7 and one minute to go, you missed one epic collapse. Just the fact the Hornets got three offensive rebounds in the final minute — not to mention 8 straight points — to get the win should tell you how Dallas played. How they lost to…

  6. Chris Paul suffers concussion, leaves court on stretcher, but tests negative

    Mar 7, 2011, 12:19 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    That looked scary. It could have ended up much, much worse. In the third quarter us Sunday night Chris Paul drove the lane against the Cleveland Cavaliers, lost the ball, turned his head to find it as he slammed his head into the arm ad shoulders of Ramon Session. Paul collapsed to the floor and…

  7. Billups out Wednesday, day-to-day after that

    Mar 2, 2011, 4:09 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    You had a feeling when a guy as hard core as Chauncey Billups used the word “severe” to describe his thigh bruise Tuesday night, he might not be playing Wednesday. He is officially out for Hornets game Wednesday, the Knicks announced at shootaround, according to a tweet from Alan Hahn of Newsday. He is questionable…

  8. Corey Brewer sweepstakes a crowded one

    Mar 2, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    coreybrewer

    Everyone knew that Troy Murphy was going to get a buyout and that Mike Bibby was going to do whatever it took to get out of Washington. But Corey Brewer being bought out by the Knicks was a surprise. He came to the Knicks as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal, we assumed because the…

  9. Hornets want to see new CBA before deciding next step with Chris Paul

    Feb 28, 2011, 12:09 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    Utah watched the Carmelo Anthony circus unfold, they heard their star point guard Deron Williams talk about waiting to see about signing an extension, they realized that an extended lockout next season could mean little chance to move him. So they shocked the world and sent to New Jersey. Chris Paul could be a free…

  10. Kings trade Carl Landry to Hornets for Marcus Thornton

    Feb 23, 2011, 1:11 AM EDT

    Carl Landry

    Feb. 23, 1:11 am: This is official, the two sides have agreed to terms and all that is left is for the league to give the trade it’s stamp of approval in the morning. Friend of the site Sam Amick of FanHouse confirms this. Feb. 22, 11:19 pm: Carl Landry was held out of the…

  11. Hornets Jarrett Jack arrested for DUI

    Feb 21, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New Orleans Hornets

    New Orleans Hornets backup point guard Jarrett Jack was arrested for a DUI Sunday morning (late Saturday night), according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Jack played his college ball at Georgia Tech and still lives in the Atlanta area in the off-season, and returned there during the All-Star break. The arrest took place in Gwinnett…

  12. David Stern talks Hornets, moving and contraction

    Feb 15, 2011, 5:27 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    David Stern is still selling the Hornets staying in New Orleans. Problem is nobody is buying. Literally. Everybody likes New Orleans but until somebody with money steps up to buy the team and signs deals to keep them there it’s all a lot of talk. Stern was on the podcast of ESPN’s Bill Simmons (if…

  13. Chris Paul fined $15,000 for words with referee

    Feb 11, 2011, 3:34 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    Chris Paul had a chance to win it. Down two on the final play of overtime against the Nets, the Hornets ran a play that got Chris Paul a good look at a three (because Jordan Farmar seemed very lost). The shot rimmed out, but Paul thought he was fouled on the legs. No call.…

  14. Trevor Ariza’s sprained ankle has him out two weeks; Sasha Pavlovic signed

    Feb 3, 2011, 4:12 PM EDT

    Trevor Ariza

    UPDATE 4:12 pm: Not but a few minutes after we posted this did the report come out (via the Times-Picayune) that Ariza will be out about two weeks. To fill in the roster space, forward Sasha Pavlovic was signed by the Hornets to a 10-day deal. Pavlovic just came off a 10-day contract with the…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another Wizards road loss sets up a “showdown” in Cleveland

    Feb 2, 2011, 7:34 AM EDT

    John Wall

    What you missed while wondering why you were watching highlights of Super Bowl media day…. Hornets 97, Wizards 89: For the first time in 306 games Emeka Okafor has to sit one out, and Jason Smith steps in and tries to Wally Pip him. Smith had 20 points on 11 shots, established himself early (10…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Other teams besides the Heat, Celtics and Lakers played Sunday, too

    Jan 31, 2011, 1:11 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    What you missed while falling asleep during the Pro Bowl…. Our man Matt Moore gave you breakdowns on the big games Sunday with the Heat beating the Thunder and the Celtics knocking off the Lakers. Suns 104, Hornets 102: The Suns were the better team for 47:40 but in those final 20 seconds they almost…

  17. Chris Paul thinks Hornets should be on national television. At least once.

    Jan 28, 2011, 3:13 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    Voters — wise folks that you are — swept Chris Paul into a starting spot on the Western Conference NBA All-Stars. When asked about it by Art Garcia at NBA.com and the Hang Time blog he spit out the usual clichés — then he took a little swing at those setting the television schedule. “I…

  18. But wait, there’s more — three game winners in one video

    Jan 25, 2011, 4:58 PM EDT

    David West

    There was David West and the elbow fade away for the Hornets. Brook Lopez moved into the middle of the lane and hit the jump hook for the Nets despite a sad and funny attempted foul by the Cavaliers. There was Rudy Gay from the baseline winning it for the Grizzlies. Three dramatic game winning…

  19. David West, Hornets reportedly nowhere near extension

    Jan 25, 2011, 2:32 PM EDT

    David_west

    Great news Hornets fans: Not only do you have to worry about losing your franchise player in Chris Paul in a couple of years — not to mention your entire franchise to some new, Clay Bennettesque  out-of-town owner — you can worry about losing David West as well. Sorry guys. The first round of Zantac…

  20. Video: David West’s game winner for Hornets

    Jan 25, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    David West

    Usually when the New Orleans Hornets need a big shot, he ball is in Chris Paul‘s hands. But he had rolled his ankle (don’t worry, he says he’s fine) and so the responsibility fell to David West. He can handle it. Very well. Here is the video of West winning the game for the Hornets…

  21. Watch Chris Paul break Tony Parker’s ankles

    Jan 24, 2011, 4:17 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    Chris Paul is so, so good. This little mid-game crossover makes Tony Parker look the fool. And Parker is no fool, the man has the rings to prove it. He can defend. There are 25 teams in the league that would kill to have Parker as their point guard. And CP3 just breaks him off.…

  22. Hornets reach attendance benchmark, they are staying put. For now.

    Jan 24, 2011, 2:39 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v New Orleans Hornets

    There has been a real push since the NBA took control of the New Orleans Hornets to boost attendance — the reason being to reach a benchmark, otherwise a new owner of the team (once they find one) could easily move the team out of New Orleans (well, still would have had to pay $10…

  23. The Hornets beat the Hawks… no, we mean the Hornets really beat the Hawks

    Jan 22, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Hawks v Timberwolves

    This game changes nothing. That should be clear. The Atlanta Hawks were never contenders in anyone’s eye, not seriously, and this loss doesn’t preclude them from some insane, fueled by desire, special combination of events championship that happens once in a lifetime against all odds. It makes it less likely, because, well, who lets that…

  24. Tyrus Thomas suspended for elbowing Emeka Okafor’s face

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:46 AM EDT

    Tyrus Thomas

    With two and a half minutes left in the Bobcats loss Saturday to the Hornets, Tyrus Thomas went up for a rebound, came down with the ball and his elbows out, then, in trying to create space, swung his left elbow directly into the face of Emeka Okafor. He got the flagrant two foul for…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: LeBron James can play some basketball, by the way

    Jan 10, 2011, 7:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Portland Trail Blazers

    What you missed while watching the original True Grit… Heat 107, Trail Blazers 100 (OT): Hate him if you want. Pull for his team to lose every game. But recognize this — LeBron James is a force of nature. He is the best player in the game right now. Not the biggest winner, but the…
