Road Block
 
Have the Hornets been this bad on the road since the 04-05, 18-64 season? Thank goodness for the home wins because they are dismal on the road.



When away from home, the Hornets have had problems with consistency and defense, leading to a 2-11 record

Not even star point guard Chris Paul has been able to save the Hornets from a string of road defeats, caused mostly by poor starts and dismal defensive play.

On their last trip to Toronto this past Sunday, Paul was 3-of-13 from the field, and the Hornets lost to the Raptors 98-92, their fourth road loss in five games. They return to the road tonight to play the struggling Chicago Bulls, who have lost two in a row and seven of their past 10.

With a 2-11 road record, the Hornets (13-14) play eight of their next 12 games away from the New Orleans Arena. New Orleans' only road victories have came against the Los Angeles Clippers (12-16) and Minnesota Timberwolves (6-24), teams that both appear to be heading toward the draft lottery.
