Monty Williams Tries to Motivate Eric Gordon

Although they got into an apparent shouting match during a timeout in last Friday’s game against the Utah Jazz, New Orleans Hornets Coach Monty Williams and guard Eric Gordon both appear to have moved past the conflict.
“He’s a dynamic guard, that’s why I push him,’’ said Williams, who plans to start Gordon for the second consecutive since the incident on Tuesday night when the Hornets play the Lakers at the Staples Center. “I’m not going to allow him to settle for where he is in his career right now. He’s got to get better. If he gets better, he should be an All-Star someday.’’
Gordon, who is the Hornets’ leading scorer with a 16.5 average, missed the first 29 games this season because of a patella tendon disorder and bone bruise in his right knee. It’s the same knee that forced Gordon to miss all but nine games last season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery.
