CHICAGO -- New Orleans may not have a reputation for being a hard-nosed, physical team. But the Hornets
went into Chicago on Saturday and beat one of the league's better defensive squads at its own game. New Orleans limited the Bulls to 33 percent shooting and pulled off a surprising 89-82 victory over
Chicago at the United Center. "We don't get a lot of credit or notoriety for being a physical team, but that's something we've prided
ourselves on since I've been here," Hornets coach Monty Williams said. "I don't think we outworked them. I
think the ball came our way a few times. It was just a major battle in that paint." New Orleans played without No. 1 overall draft pick Anthony Davis, who suffered a concussion in Friday's
win over Utah, and shooting guard Eric Gordon, who will miss several weeks with a knee injury. This was a physical, defensive contest throughout. The Hornets built a 10-point lead midway through th...

Rasheed Wallace knows his best days are long behind him, but he's more than comfortable with his bench role on the Knickerbockers.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Anthony Davis, the overall No. 1 draft pick of the New Orleans, has left Friday night's game against Utah and is being tested for a possible concussion and will not return.

CLEVELAND - Don't shed any tears for the Chicago Bulls. Sure, they are missing their best player, point guard Derrick Rose, who is recovering from a torn ACL. But this is still a formidable opponent. Just ask the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Bulls annihilated the Cavs on Friday, winning 115-86 before a sell-out crowd at Quicken Loans Arena. Chicago (2-0) has beaten the Cavs...
New Orleans Hornets coach Monty Williams blasted the NBA's protocols for determining when a player can return from a concussion, a day after No. 1 draft pick Anthony Davis suffered a mild one.

Anthony Davis has been unable to travel with the New Orleans Hornets this weekend after he was inadvertently elbowed in the head by teammate Austin Rivers during Friday’s win over the Utah Jazz. This has annoyed Hornets coach Monty Williams, because Davis supposedly feels fine but has to undergo a series of tests before he is cleared to return to the team, per NBA policy.

It was an ugly, ugly game.
Well, that sure was discouraging.
I wasn’t expecting much from the Cavs on Friday night. While I enjoyed the Cavs opening night win against the Wizards, the Bulls are an entirely different basketball beast. The Bulls have veteran players who know what they’re doing on both ends of the floor. Chicago is patient on offense and they move the ball to...
