Hello, losing record.

With respect to YAYSports!

The Hornets dropped the final game of their magnificent road trip in Oakland last night, 101-80, sending them back home with a 9-10 record and the Cavs, Spurs and Mavs looming next week. As Byron Scott said postgame…

"Right now if you look at our team, we're not a very good basketball team."

No shit, Coach. Here comes the usual…

  • Linkage: box | recap | video | photos
  • Typical that the one night Desmond Mason shows any semblance of an offensive game, he has a "dental emergency" and misses most of the third quarter. He hit all nine of his field goals in the first half and had 22 at the break. He finished with 24 points. John Rohde tells us all about Desmond's teeth here.
  • The win gave Don Nelson his 1,200th head coaching victory. Isn't that fantastic?
  • Not counting Mason's 10-of-11 shooting, the rest of the team shot 20-of-59, which works out as 34%. Rasual Butler was especially off-target, missing 12-of-17.
  • Leading the Warriors was Mickael Pietrus, whose 22 points included a nasty dunk over Mason and Hilton Armstrong early in the fourth quarter. Baron Davis narrowly missed a triple-dip (16, 10 and 9) while Andris Biedrins scored 17 and grabbed 13.

In other, less depressing news, there's the latest Carnival of the NBA over at Cavalier Attitude. I'm hungry.
