Make It Eight, Hornets Trounce Defending Champs

Posted: January 27, 2008 in Hornets

The Bees continue their dominating performance as they rout the defending champion San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center. The final was 102-78 with New Orleans using a late surge to pull away.

The Hornets remain atop the west at 31-12 and are now 6-2 in the division.

The Hornets answer their toughest test of this dominating stretch by having their their most dominating of them all. The Hornets, perhaps playing on NBA TV, made a statement to the country and the rest of the league, “We’re Good” and the West road to the title game could go through New Orleans. The Bees are 22-8 in the conference. At the Hive they are 15-7. One the road they are 15-5. They will look to extend their streak when they take on Denver Monday at 7pm at the Hive.
