Clifford: Defense was problem for 'disappointing' Hornets

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Steve Clifford sat behind a table in the Hornets arena lamenting his team's defensive struggles in what he deemed a "disappointing" 2016-17 season.

The disappointment stemmed from Charlotte's porous defense.

Which is ironic, considering Hornets owner Michael Jordan hired Clifford because of his defensive coaching skills. Not to mention add Charlotte's great defense is what the Hornets hung their hat on in Clifford's first three seasons - two of which resulted in playoff appearances.
