Gordon Scores 24 In 12-13 Debut
Eric Gordon made his 12-13 debut in the New Orleans Hornets' 98-95 win over the Bobcats.
Gordon scored a game-high 24 points, shooting 5-for-13 from the field while attempting 14 free throws.
"It felt pretty good; it felt good to be out there with the guys," Gordon said. "And we had a lot of fun. It's all about play-making down the stretch. When you're coming back from – I don't know what we were down by, 21 points? It comes down to play-making, not making turnovers, hitting the open man. You've got to use what you have. We have a lot of good bigs. Our guards just have to make good use of our team."
"I didn't expect that kind of impact right off the bat," said Monty Williams, "but I certainly thought he could help guys and make guys better. I didn't know he'd have 24 points and a few assists. Defensively, he's going to get better as he gets in shape."
