Rookies step up for Hornets in win over Hawks

NEW ORLEANS (NBA.com exclusive) -- The New Orleans Hornets cut down one NBA giant on Thursday when they upended the then-Western Conference leading Phoenix Suns.

So why not take out the Eastern Conference's No. 1 team in consecutive games?

The improving Hornets did exactly that as New Orleans tripped up the Atlanta Hawks 96-88 on Saturday night at the New Orleans Arena. The loss for the Hawks ended their seven-game winning streak while the win now gives the Hornets a three-game winning surge.

Atlanta's loss may not be the worst thing to happen as Hawks point guard Mike Bibby left the game in the first quarter with a sprained left ankle and did not return.

The Hornets have been dealing with their own point guard injury drama with Chris Paul still on the sidelines with his ankle injury.

The drop-off hasn't been as severe as originally thought.

The Hornets won't be suffering from a lack of depth at point guard once Paul returns as first-round pick Darren Collison continues to blossom. Add the way second-round pick Marcus Thornton keeps playing, and the Hornets may be on their way to having the best draft class of 2009.

Collison has quickly grasped the offensive concept new coach Jeff Bower has installed. Collison scored a game-high 22 points and piled up a game-high 11 assists.

"Things are getting under my belt," Collison said. "This is a game I've been playing for a long time. Once you get to the NBA, it doesn't mean you can freeze up. I'm just taking what the defense gives me on every possession and I'm able to use my quickness as teams play off of me."

Thornton wasn't too far behind his draft classmate as his scoring ability has been heavily on display since his minutes have increased. Thornton came off the bench to score 21 points going 9-for-16 from the floor.

"Coming in, we knew they were the hot team," Thornton said. "They had all the excitement (Friday) night against Houston. We knew they were going to come in kind of tired. We wanted to be aggressive and get this win. ... Atlanta is a hot team right now and so was Phoenix," Thornton said. "So we had to come in, everybody stuck together and we pulled it off."

New coach Jeff Bower is now 3-2 through his first five games as a head coach on any level. A lot has to do with the way Collison and Thornton have improved.

"I think first of all, (Collison and Thornton) have talent and ability," Bower said. "It's something we felt would show itself. Secondly, they believe in themselves as NBA players. And lastly, their teammates. You know their teammates are their biggest fans and cheerleaders and give them encouragement."

The basketball saying goes, "You live by the 3, you die by the 3."

The Hornets' blood is pumping just fine as the team shot 70.6 percent from behind the arc going 12-for-17. It's the second straight game New Orleans lit it up from 3-point land as the team shot 52 percent in Thursday's win over the Suns.

Peja Stojakovic was the main Hornets 3-point contributor as he went 5-for-7 from distance on his way to 17 points.

The Hornets got the job done on defense as well. They held the Hawks to 37.2 percent from the floor, by far the lowest field-goal percentage the Hornets have surrendered all season.

Losing Bibby could easily have affected the way the Hawks operated in New Orleans, though.

Bibby sprained his left ankle with 6:59 remaining in the first quarter while chasing a loose ball near the Hawks bench. Hawks coach Mike Woodson quickly called timeout when the injury occurred as Bibby limped off the floor in obvious pain.

Jamal Crawford and Joe Johnson played the point most of the game in place of Bibby. Crawford scored a team-high 20 points and Johnson added 14, but missing Bibby for an extended period of time definitely hurt Atlanta.

Hawks coach Mike Woodson said he's not sure how long Bibby will be out. Bibby will be evaluated once the team flies back home.

"Bibby's our quarterback," said Hawks forward Marvin Williams, who scored 17 points. "It's tough when your general goes down like that."
