Welcome To New Orleans, Eric Gordon

Eric Gordon made his debut in New Orleans a big one.

Former Hoosier – and Los Angeles Clipper – Eric Gordon hit the game winner for his new team in the season opener:

PHOENIX (AP) Eric Gordon made a 20-footer from the top of the key with 4.2 seconds to play in his New Orleans debut to give the Hornets an 85-84 victory over the Phoenix Suns in their season opener Monday night.

Gordon, who came to New Orleans in the trade that sent Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers, gave his team its only lead since the first two minutes of the second half.

While EJ only played one season in Bloomington (the Sampson debacle), he has stayed quite involved with the Hoosiers – engaging on Twitter and showing up at a game during the lockout. So … we like Eric Gordon.
