Hornets, back at home, find a way to cool off Heat


By Larry Holder, for NBA.com

NEW ORLEANS (NBA.com exclusive) -- When anyone brings up the New Orleans Hornets this season, the conversation on a daily basis can easily steer in one primary direction.

How can the Hornets play so well at home and then fall off the map on the road?

Another perfect example occurred Wednesday night as the Hornets played like the more dominant team most of the game by knocking off the Miami Heat 95-91 in the New Orleans Arena.

After being one win away from finally moving their record back to the .500 mark, the Hornets went on to lose their next two consecutive games and losing three of their last four games. All three losses came on the road.

The only team with a worse road record than the Hornets' 2-13 mark going into Wednesday night's schedule was the Nets with their 1-16 record.

After the solid win over the Heat, the Hornets improved their home record to 12-3, which ranks among the top teams in the NBA. The Hornets have beaten the likes of Dallas, Phoenix, Denver, Atlanta and now Miami.

"Like I've said before ..." Hornets guard Devin Brown said almost with a prepared statement because he and the team realize the question won't go away, "if there was a way I could bottle up the solution and sell it, I'd sell it to all the NBA teams. It's just something when we're in a situation like this, we kind of use the home games to get ourselves going.

"I know it sounds weird. We're trying to pull from anything we can to play this way on the road. [January[ we have a lot of road games. We're going to have to get good at it really. We'll just see how it goes."

Brown compared Tuesday night's loss in Houston and Wednesday night's win at home as the quintessential contrast of results. The Hornets were up in the fourth quarter and lost against the Rockets. The Hornets were up big on the Heat in the fourth quarter and weathered a late Miami run to hold on.

"We just kind of stayed with, stayed with [Wednesday] and that's what we have to learn to do [on the road]," Brown said. "We talked about it before Houston. It comes with any road game. Give yourself a chance to win in the fourth quarter."

The Heat came in with a three-game win streak, but the Hornets held it together Wednesday in the fourth quarter. Unlike Tuesday.

"They just had some more consistent play, particularly in the end and they made shots," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "[David] West had a big shot, Chris Paul's bank shot was a big one at the buzzer. Sometimes that can change the complexion of it."

Paul didn't want to say, though, that the Hornets learned something from Tuesday night's loss in Houston that allowed them to hold off Miami.

"Two different teams," Paul said. "We didn't give up in the fourth quarter [Tuesday night]. They made some runs. They made some shots. It was just two totally different teams. Houston has a lot of different guys they play through. [Wednesday], we knew [Dwyane] Wade was going to be the guy."

Wade tried to be the guy with a game-high 22 points, but Brown did a solid job in crunch time by giving Wade contested looks and not allowing Wade to drive the basket.

West came up huge again for the second straight game, in a win this time. The Heat took an 88-87 lead with 59.7 seconds left in the game, but West single-handedly stopped the run as he scored the game's next six points leading to his team-high 21 points along with 10 rebounds.

The Hornets had four other players score in double figures. Paul scored 18 points, while Brown had 16 points, Emeka Okafor had 15 points and 14 rebounds and Darius Songaila came off the bench with 11 points.

"The biggest thing was Emeka Okafor once again hanging around the rim," Paul said. "He was blocking shots and just contesting everything in there."

The Heat had a balanced scoring attack along with Wade as five others chipped in with double figures. Quentin Richardson scored 14 points. Jermaine O'Neal added 12, while Michael Beasley and Carlos Arroyo each had 11. Udonis Haslem came off the bench to score 10 points.
