The 7-15 Pistons are on a second game of a back to back in New Orleans to face the 13-7 Hornets.
The Pistons aren’t the only ones with issues, the league announced Monday it was purchasing the team from owner George Shinn. After another potential deal fell through, the NBA is hoping get them stable financially and attract a local buyer who will keep the team in New Orleans.
David West, the Hornets’ leading scorer, who’s averaging 18.5 points per game, called the situation a “mess.”
Chris Paul is averaging 14.4 points over the last nine games after getting 17.5 during the previous 11. Despite his drop in scoring, he’s among the league leaders in assists with 10.4 per game.
On the Pistons side of the ball, it’s a homecoming for rookie Greg Monroe.
