Another week of (mostly) losing for the Hornets, but NOLA showed a little fight with a violent foul on Blake Griffin in Thursday's win against the Clippers. Hornets forward Jason Smith was suspended for two games when he dropped a flying haymaker on Griffin. After being ejected from the game, Smith waved his arms to pump up the crowd of about a dozen people. New Orleans may finish the season with less than eighteen wins, but they do have some fight in them—literally. —Sean Evans
