Second-half surge powers Hornets past short-handed Pistons


By Larry Holder, for NBA.com

NEW ORLEANS (NBA.com exclusive) -- The New Orleans Hornets' effort was nowhere to be found during the first half.

Sloppy ball-handling equated into a slew of easy baskets for the Detroit Pistons and pushed Hornets coach Jeff Bower into calling his team it's own worst enemy.

The Hornets chatted about it at halftime, and a seemingly different team came out in the second half as they erased a 16-point deficit to come back and beat the Pistons 95-87 at the New Orleans Arena as Detroit lost without the injured Richard Hamilton.

The tale of two halves was pretty obvious for the Hornets.

New Orleans turned in a careless performance as it turned the ball over seven times in less than 10 minutes in the first quarter. New Orleans' effort simply decreased in the second quarter as the Hornets turned the ball over 14 times in the first half.

"We had way too many turnovers and mistakes that we shouldn't have had," Bower said. "At halftime, we talked about our offense and eliminating the turnovers so our defense would gather steam. It seemed to work."

The Pistons took near complete advantage of the Hornets' lackluster first half as Detroit scored 24 points off the 14 turnovers. The energy boost from the end of the first half to the beginning of the second half was evident.

"They had 14 turnovers at halftime and I think they scored off of every single one," the Hornets' David West said, who had a game-high 32 points and 12 rebounds. "It was about us coming in here and taking care of the basketball. We had more confidence coming in here and what we were trying to do offensively. Detroit, they are a little banged up in terms of their roster. We felt like this was a game we had to come in here and get."

The Hornets used a solid third quarter to chip away at Detroit as the Pistons' lead trickled down to 73-70 by the end of the quarter. New Orleans eventually took the lead when West's layup with 8:12 to go gave the Hornets a 76-75 lead.

West then gave the Hornets the lead for good on another layup with 1:54 left in the game. New Orleans only turned the ball over four times in the second half compared to Detroit's 10.

"We've been a great second-half team so far this year," the Hornets' Chris Paul said. "We've just got to figure out a way to do that 48 minutes. ... We think about it all the time. I'm sure Detroit over there is trying to figure out why they didn't do what they did in the first half in the second half. Every team in this league is trying to figure out how to put 48 minutes of basketball together. That's what coach told us before the game. We as a team are trying to do that."

The Hornets' starting lineup did nearly all the scoring damage as all five starters scored in double figures.

Paul added 16 points and 12 assists. Emeka Okafor scored 15 points, while Devin Brown had 13 and Peja Stojakovic had 11.

"We picked up the intensity," Paul said. "We got after them a little bit. We rebounded the ball better and we got out in transition. D-West got us going, Peja hit some big shots and we pulled out the win. ... We were able to get some long rebounds and push up the tempo and get them on their heels. D-West was able to knock down some shots."

The Pistons were already beat up with no Tayshaun Prince and no Ben Gordon. And then the Pistons received another blow right before tip off when Hamilton was a no-go after tweaking his right hamstring in Houston one night earlier.

Rodney Stuckey tried to fill Detroit's scoring void as he led the Pistons with 26 points. Charlie Villanueva came off the bench to score 18 points and Chucky Atkins had 13.

While it appeared the Pistons could prevail without its scoring leaders in the first half, it caught up with them in the final 24 minutes.

"This was one of those games where you look back and say, 'God we played well in the first half, and the second half we didn't do so well,'" Pistons coach John Kuester said.
