CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- They have been dubbed Bench Force One.Charlottes pesky, hard-nosed group of backups is paying big dividends for the Hornets early this season. They outscored Utahs reserves 41-20 in a 104-98 victory over the Jazz on Wednesday night.Kemba Walker scored 21 points and Marvin Williams had 19 for the Hornets, but it was the play of Marco Belinelli, Frank Kaminsky, Spencer Hawes and Ramon Sessions off the bench that proved to be the difference as Charlotte stretched its winning streak to four games.Belinelli and Kaminsky had 13 points each and Hawes added 11.Theyre good players. They fit together well, Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. They have an identity off the bench with that group. They go to Marco coming off screens and hes hard to guard and then they post Kaminsky and Sessions in the pick and roll.Kaminsky, by far the youngest of the crew in just his second season, shook off a viral infection to post a big night.Charlotte trailed most of the game, but he made an inside jumper to give the Hornets a lead with 7 minutes remaining that they wouldnt relinquish. He later knocked down a 3 from the top of the key.We talk about coming off the bench and providing energy, Kaminsky said. We know it all starts with defense and letting that lead to offense.

He just wasnt thrilled that they missed 26 of them.Were not a team that takes bad 3s, so if we are taking that many its because theyre open, Snyder said. Some of them were good, clean looks and we just have to make them. Those are shots that we want to take.WALKER STRONG LATEThe Jazz kept Walker in check most of the game, but the Easts third-leading scorer at 24.3 points per game began to find his touch in the fourth quarter.He started to bang some shots on us, but over the course of the game I thought we were really good against him, Hayward said. At the end of the game they just got in a groove, they got in a good rhythm.ON THE ROAD AGAINJoe Johnson isnt blaming the schedule for the Jazzs 5-4 start. Utah has played six games on the road this season.That has nothing to do with it, Johnson said.
