What's the Hurry?


Item 8 on today's Daily Dime: "The Hornets defeated the Thunder on Wednesday without scoring any points on fast breaks. It was the second game this season in which New Orleans failed to register a fast-break point (the other was a loss in New York on Nov. 2). Only one other NBA team has had played a game without posting a fast-break point this season. The Spurs did it in a victory at Washington on January 2." The weird thing? At 92 possessions a game, this is by far the fastest Hornet team since 1999. In fact, it's the second fastest team in franchise history since the run and gun days of the early 90's.
