Hornets score just 23 first-half points vs SixersPosted by Inside Hoops
The New Orleans Hornets apparently were mislead and thought that today’s game in Philadelphia against the 76ers was being played with golf rules, with victory going to whoever scores the fewest points.
In the first half, the Hornets shot just 14.3% (6-of-42) and missed all five of their three-point attempts. They scored just 13 points in the first quarter and 10 in the second.
Chris Paul was solid with 10 points on four shot attempts. But fellow starters Marco Belinelli shot 1-of-6, Trevor Ariza 1-of-9, David West 1-of-6, and Emeka Okafor 0-of-5.
The Sixers shot 45 percent and were led by Andre Iguodala’s 10 points.
