Hornets Post Game Quotes
Head Coach Monty Williams
On tonights loss:
We had 29 turnovers for 35 points. Youre never going to win playing like that. Our point guards had a number of them but it was everybody. They were physical with us and it certainly took us out of our offense. We won the rebounding game, we won the free throw game but when you turn the ball over like that you cant really expect anything else.
On missing [Chris] Kaman and [Jason] Smith:
Hornets Forward Trevor Ariza
On the difference between Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant:
Chris is more of a point guard and gets people involved and Kobe [Bryant] is a cold blooded killer when it comes to scoring the basketball. They both want to win and they both have the competitive spirit.
