Monty Williams on how the game got away


"The fourth quarter. We came out of halftime saying that all we had to do was win quarter-by-quarter and we won the third quarter. In the fourth quarter we couldn’t muster the same kind of efficiency on offense. We were getting enough stops, we held them to 94 points, we had some silly turnovers down the stretch."


Jason Smith on what cost the Hornets:


"They were 50, we were 32 points in the paint. That’s something we have to correct. We know the Jazz are a physical team and they are difficult team to play at home."


Jarrett Jack on his big individual performance:


"Yeah, but in the end if you don’t get the W it’s all for not. Obviously, I wanted to come out and have a more positive effect on the game than I did last game, but it still wasn’t enough. You just got to go home and be ready. We have a Philly team that has been playing some pretty good basketball at the beginning of the season and have to be ready to protect home court."


Gary Chouest Mentioned in House Ethics Committee Report

From Ryan J. Reilly/Talking Points Memo:

Rep. Don Young (R-AK) didn’t break any rules when he accepted $60,000 — far over the $5,000 limit — in donations to his legal fund from entities that were controlled by the same family, the House Ethics Committee found this week. But they’re making sure that other members can’t exploit the same loophole in the future.

Young, according to the House Ethics Committee’s report, received the donations in an envelope from fishing buddy Gary Chouest, who is president of a marine transportation company.

"When it comes to campaign finance law, that’s clearly a violation," Public Citizen’s Craig Holman told TPM. "It’s well established as a violation of that type of rule."


Perry Jones III Quick Profile

From Big Easy Buzz:

Overall: Jones is one of the best prospects in this year’s draft. He could have a top flight jump shot for a power forward. In that part of his game he could have a bit of David West in him. I also see Rudy Gay, in terms of passing and athleticism. I may be a little too high on him, (I thought about comparing him to Kevin Durant, but recanted) and I think he has the ability to grow into a top 5 power forward in the NBA.


Former Hornet D.J. Mbenga Works out for Clippers

From The Los Angeles Times:

The Clippers, in search of more depth for their front court, worked out several big men Monday at the team’s practice facility.

They had in 7-footer D.J. Mbenga, 6-11 Hilton Armstrong, 6-10 Solomon Jones and 6-11 Dan Gadzuric.
