It wasn't just the fact that the Hornets ended up being one of the worst teams in the league. They were also without top returning scorer Eric Gordon (injury). New Orleans also ended up losing Anthony Davis after he was elbowed by his teammate and fellow rookie Austin Rivers in the first half.

Without Gordon, without Davis, the Hornets somehow made Utah's first road game of the season a sign of things to come. The Jazz could — and, it turned out, would — lose to anyone on the road.Nice

Even if that anyone included Robin Lopez (19 points, seven rebounds) outdueling Al Jefferson (10 points, eight rebounds).
