New Orleans Hornets Coach Monty Williams did not put starting guard Eric Gordon back into Friday night's game against the Utah Jazz after they apparently got into a shouting match during a timeout with 8:37 remaining in the third quarter. According to news reports, Williams was visibly agitated, yelling in Gordon's direction. During the telecast of the game, it only shows Gordon looking angry as he approached the bench after turning around to say something, but the cameras were not on Williams at the time. NBA.com reported that Williams had to be held back by assistant coach Randy Ayers after Gordon hollered back at him.
