Hornets bigs (mainly Tyson and D-West) need to start hitting the glass harder.
New Orleans Hornets Coach Byron Scott wants Tyson Chandler to grab more rebounds
When the New Orleans Hornets spent two days in Los Angeles following their victory last Monday against the Clippers, Coach Byron Scott said he spoke to former Laker Jerry West.
The Hall of Famer had a little observation about Scott's team.
"Jerry said one difference about this year's team as opposed to last year is that Tyson Chandler is not playing with the energy he played last year,'' Scott said.
Chandler averaged 11.8 points and 11. 7 rebounds last season. After 12 games, he is averaging 8.2 points and 7.9 rebounds.
"We are 29th in the league in rebounding and I really pointed to two guys. Tyson's rebounds is down about four a game and David's is down about three a game," Scott said. "If they average just what they did last year at this time, we'll be seventh in the league.''
