By: STEVE REED CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Hornets coach Steve Clifford continues to emphasize to his players it’s not just about winning games this time of the year – it’s about continuing to improve as the playoffs approach.
The Hornets seem to be doing just that.
In a game that had potential playoff tiebreaker implications down the road, Marvin Williams tied a career high with five 3-pointers and scored 22 points and the Hornets routed the Detroit Pistons 118-103 on Friday night for their sixth straight win.
“The two games with them, we haven’t been able to keep up with them in the half court or the full court or in transition,” Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said. “They play too fast. We play too slow. We can’t keep up with them.”
Nicolas Batum added 17 points and 11 assists for the Hornets, who have won 12 of their last 14 games.
Kemba Walker, who had scored at least 30 points in each of the previous four games, finished with 16 points and eight assists.
“It was big,” Williams said. “We knew it was going to be a big time game for us. We wanted to protect our home court and we came out and did that tonight.”
With the win the Hornets (36-28) moved eight games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2000-01 season. They’d never reached that mark during the Bobcats era.
“Guys that have been in the playoffs and gone deep in the playoffs and know what it takes right now this is when they amp it up and get better,” Clifford said. “They get their group to the next level and that’s what we need to do.”
The Hornets improved to 5-0 on their current seven-game home stand and 24-9 at “The Hive” this season.
