New Orleans Hornets by the Numbers

Published: January 24, 2012

A look at the New Orleans Hornets by the numbers. If you have particularly strong feelings about this piece one way or the other, please do tell.

I hate to start on a negative note, but the Hornets have zero victories at home so far this calendar year.

Your Hornets averaged over one point per possession (1.03) on Monday, which is now something they’ve done only one time this season. Their previous high was an even 1.0 against Memphis on January 14th. They also lost by two again, making it three games in a row they’ve been defeated by that margin.

Four players are currently scoring in double digits each game, but two of them are Eric Gordon and Trevor Ariza, who have played two and nine games respectively.

Emeka Okafor has made five of his six shots when spotting up this year. Gustavo Ayon has the highest PER right now for the Hornets (21.3), making him one of seven Hornets who are performing above average according to that metric.

The Hornets have now had 40+ rebounds in eight of their last nine games.

They’ve lost all but one of their 10 home games this year.

As far as rankings go, they come in at number 13 in defensive efficiency (100.8), 25 in offensive efficiency (95.9), 26 in home attendance (14,174), 28 in true shooting percentage (49.5, yuck) and winning percentage (.176, yuck), 29 in pace (90.6), and finally, 30 in home winning percentage (10%).

40 is the three point shooting percentage belonging to Squeaky Johnson, which is the highest on the entire team.

49 games this season are still on the schedule for the Hornets as well as the total number of regular season wins Monty Williams has in his coaching career.

50 is the percent of three pointers the Hornets made on Monday, the second highest they’ve shot from there all season. It’s also the number of regular season losses Monty has in his coaching career.

60 is the percentage they shot from three point land when they beat Denver on the road earlier this month.

92 is the percentage at which the Hornets made their free throws against San Antonio, the highest mark they’ve had all season.

99 is how many regular season games Monty Williams has coached.

100 is the percentage of Hornets fans who need more Gustavo Ayon in their lives.
