New Orleans Hornets 2010-2011 Season Schedule

Published: August 10, 2010

This is the 2010-2011 Hornets Season Schedule. Most notes are at the bottom, but pay special attention to the first 17 games of the season. Only three are against teams which had losing records last year. The NBA didn’t do the Hornets any favors early on.

This team and coaching staff is going to be tested early, and failure is not an option (had to say it). A bad start from a young, relatively inexperienced coaching staff could spell disaster for the prospect of competing for a playoff spot this year, especially with Paul’s uncertain future. But if the team can come out of the gate hot, and keep their heads afloat in what is sure to be a wild Western Conference, then there’s a chance they can make a real splash this year and provide a compelling case that New Orleans can win basketball titles, too.

This is a very exciting time for Hornets basketball as we begin under the leadership of GM Dell Demps and Head Coach Monty Williams,” said President Hugh Weber.  “We are eager for the 2010-11 season to get underway and for our fans to enjoy an entire 41- game schedule of the fun, excitement and entertainment they’ve come to expect from our game-night experience.”

“The schedule coming out creates a whole new excitement knowing the season is right around the corner,” said Head Coach Monty Williams. “We look forward to continuing to build as a team, improving on last season and being a force in the Western Conference.”

As for the schedule:

  • There is only one game on national television, which seems odd considering the team still has Chris Paul on it.
  • The fifth game of the year is at home and against the Miami Heat. Did anyone say “sell out”?
  • If the team does well, the final five games will be clashes against teams which are expected to compete for a playoff spot. Could be quite a finish.
