Hornets lose Paul and debut without Scott


By Larry Holder, for NBA.com

NEW ORLEANS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Pick out an adjective for the word "ugly" and it would apply to the start of the head coaching era for the New Orleans Hornets' Jeff Bower as the team played like it was mostly lost and bewildered through about the first three quarters Friday night.

Ugly then transformed into potentially disastrous when Hornets All-Star point guard Chris Paul injured his left ankle late in the third quarter and had to be carried off the court by teammates Sean Marks and Darius Songaila.

It sure wasn't the way the Hornets brass wanted to sell the fanbase on why they fired coach Byron Scott only to name Bower, the team's general manager, as Scott's replacement as the Portland Trail Blazers knocked off New Orleans 86-78.

Bad turned into maybe the worst when Paul came down wrong on his left ankle with 40.3 seconds left in the third quarter. Trainers deemed the injury a sprained ankle and a Hornets spokesman said the severity of the injury couldn't be better determined. It's the same ankle Paul tweaked during the Hornets' win over the Clippers in Los Angeles on Monday night.

Paul exited the locker room on crutches wearing a boot on his foot. He said he had never rolled his ankle before Monday and said the injury was probably the same spot on his ankle. Paul was setting up a dunk by Hilton Armstrong when Paul came down on the ankle in obvious pain. He laid on the court for a couple of minutes as the whole team, the coaching staff led by new head coach Jeff Bower and the training staff surrounded Paul before being carried off the court.

Paul may have lamented the loss of Scott the most and he played like it Friday before leaving with the injury. He only scored three points and tallied eight assists in his 30-plus minutes of action.

"Obviously (Paul's injury) becomes a very difficult thing from the standpoint of (Paul) is a top talent in the league," Bower said. "A creator of a large percentage of the offensive opportunities. It's going to put a premium on our ability to execute. If we have to play without him, we're going to have to rely on execution, ball movement and playing together. But that's what this is all about."

Paul still does plan to travel to Atlanta tonight with the team because he has about 75 friends and family that will attend the Hornets' game against the Hawks.

The Blazers came into Friday night playing the way the Hornets once were two years ago. The Blazers may not have played their 'A' game, but the Blazers pushed their way past a physically and mentally battered Hornets squad to extend their winning streak to five games. Both teams were brutal shooting the ball as the Blazers went 37.9 percent from the field, while the Hornets were marginally worse with 36.7 percent.

"We're still doing good," said Blazers guard Brandon Roy, who scored 15 points. "Anytime you win road games, it's huge. (Saturday is) going to be a good test for us. It's going to be our fourth game in five nights. It will be interesting to see how we respond."

Blazers big man LaMarcus Aldridge led Portland with 20 points going 10-for-19 from the field. Aldridge drained four straight jumpers in the third quarter to give Portland the push it needed to win.

Hornets rookies Marcus Thornton and Darren Collison brought a scoring boost off the bench as Thornton scored a team-high 20 points while Collison added 18. Thornton's scoring threat should give him increased playing time and Collison will definitely see added minutes with the injury to Paul.

Bower said Collison, Devin Brown and Bobby Brown, who was inactive Friday, will all see playing time at the point when the Hornets take on the Hawks in Atlanta. Forward David West figured it will be Collison doing the heavy lifting, though.

"We're comfortable enough with Darren to be able to come in as he's a natural point guard," West said.

The coaching transition began with a dreadful 3-for-23 through the first 10 minutes of the game. Team president Hugh Weber sitting at center court couldn't help but duck his head and rub his hand back and forth across his forehead during the first quarter.

Bower said repeatedly the last two days the switch at head coach was not about him, but by serving as head coach and general manager, the success or failure of the Hornets will certainly fall on his shoulders.

"We're not going to surrender," Bower claimed. "We're not going to quit."

A lengthy absence by Paul could make Bower's claims more difficult.
