Ever since Monty Williams took the reins as head coach a year ago, he put the majority of his emphasis on defense. So far, this approach has proven to work.
The Hornets are fifth in the league in defense, allowing only 91 points a game.
Yet, when you're only averaging 86.5 points on offense, you're not going to win many games. Therefore, some attention will need to be shifted to the other side of the ball.
It should be noted, however, that when Eric Gordon finally does return, their low scoring mark will likely increase. And by that time, new players on the team will have become more acclimated to Monty Williams' system.
Nonetheless, it's important that the Hornets continue to do what they do best, and keep their identity as a defensive squad.
