Hornets hope to halt slide at Pistons

The Charlotte Hornets needed to get away after stumbling into the All-Star break. They lost 11 of their last 12 games, but after a week off, their head coach remains optimistic about their postseason chances.

Charlotte slid from two games over .500 to 24-32, dropping 2 1/2 games behind the Detroit Pistons for the eighth and final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. The Hornets can make up a game in the standings on Thursday night as they travel to Michigan to play the Pistons at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

"We have a good group. The work (ethic) has not been a problem," Hornets coach Steve Clifford told the media after the team's first practice since the break. "We've just been inconsistent. Frankly, we just haven't made the progress that I thought we would by now. But we have time. Twenty-six games, that's a third of the season. Our guys, I don't think they'll go away. They want to win."
