Default New Hornets learning quickly

After a shortened training camp with nine new players, it was presumed Hornets Coach Monty Williams would need more time to fully implement his defensive principles. But Williams says his players are quick studies after going through extended video sessions and walk-throughs in practice. And they’re producing results.

The Hornets (2-0) are emerging as a tough-minded defensive team. In Wednesday’s night’s 97-78 victory against the Boston Celtics at the New Orleans Arena, New Orleans had 12 blocked shots.

In their season-opening 85-84 victory at Phoenix on Monday night, the Hornets limited the Suns to 39.5 percent shooting and 19 points in the fourth quarter.

It’s still early, but the Hornets are second in the NBA in fewest points allowed per game (81.0) and field-goal percentage allowed (38.4).
