New Orleans is only 4-10 for the month after losing 97-85 on Monday to the Los Angeles Clippers and former New Orleans guard Chris Paul. Since trading Monta Ellis to Milwaukee, the Golden State Warriors haven’t been up to shape, losing 7 of 9 but they can’t feel too bad after their loss with the Lakers 104-101 on Tuesday considering three injured starters sat out.

New Orleans Hornets (12-37) The Hornets have managed to commit an NBA season-high 29 turnovers which led to 35 points by the Clippers, also an opponent season-high. The two teams shot 50 percent from the floor, but the Hornets were just 2 out of 11 when it comes to 3-pointers. In a 101-92 loss to the Golden State Warriors last March 21, New Orleans has allowed 13 3-pointers and rookie Klay Thompson was able to score 27 points. Missing his last two games, day to day, is Chris Kaman due to an illness. This team has started with 18 different lineups. Hornets guard Jarrett Jack had his first career triple-double against the Warriors last week with 17 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. Golden State Warriors (20-28) The Warriors seem to be out of options but to play with a young lineup for the rest of the season. PG Stephen Curry had a sprained right ankle and has missed his ninth game and it is unlikely that he would play again this season. Andrew Bogut has fractured his left ankle and has the same fate as Curry, unlikely to play as well. Starting center Andris Biedris unfortunately has a strained right groin and has been a non-factor for weeks and guard Nate Robinson has a strained right hamstring sat out against the Lakers. The rookies K. Thompson, Charles Jenkins and Jeremy Tyler all started.
