Recap

Brown's career night helps Hornets get rare road win

SALT LAKE CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- They got a career night from sharpshooter Devin Brown, played excellent defense in the third quarter and had to dig out of a double-digit deficit.

And with the game on the line in the fourth quarter, the New Orleans Hornets knew where to turn: Chris Paul.

Paul ignited a late spurt and single-handedly made a four-point turn in the Hornets' 91-87 win over the Utah Jazz on Monday night. It was New Orleans' third win in 16 road games this season.

"It's big, as terrible as we've been on the road this year," Paul said. "I think we showed a lot of grit, a lot of poise. We fought hard to win this game."

With the game tied 79-79, Paul took over. He rebounded his own miss to keep a possession alive, and David West made a shot to give New Orleans (16-16) a lead it wouldn't relinquish against the Jazz (18-16). Paul assisted on a 3-pointer by Brown, and then hit a 17-foot jumper to give the Hornets an 86-79 lead.

Paul's biggest play came during a dangerous sequence for New Orleans. Ahead 86-82, the Jazz collected a rebound and started a fast break. Outnumbered near his own basket, Paul stole a pass by Deron Williams that was intended for Andrei Kirilenko, then made a driving layup to put the Hornets in control at 88-82 with 27 seconds left.

"It just came at the right time," Paul said of the pass he stole from Williams. "I've always had a knack for stealing the ball. That was great timing."

Paul, like many of the Hornets, started slowly against the Jazz. New Orleans fell behind by 12 points in the first quarter, but was able to get going thanks to Brown's hot hand. Brown scored a career-high 30 points and sank five 3-pointers.

Brown played for the Jazz during the 2005-06 season before he was traded to Golden State in a deal that sent Derek Fisher to Utah for one season.

"To come in here and show the things I did here -- hit 3's, play hard, I was able to show that tonight," Brown said. "But we were concentrating more on getting back to .500 and we were able to do that."

The Jazz suffocated Paul in the first half, trapping him off of ball screens and forcing him into an 0-for-4 shooting effort with just two points and two turnovers. The Hornets' offense opened up in the second half when Utah had to account for Brown.

"Obviously the MVP of the game tonight is Devin Brown," Paul said. "Early in the game they could contain me on the ball screens. They (the Jazz) were helping out for him. Once he got his shot going, I could get going a little bit."

New Orleans also got its defense going in the second half to take control of the game. The Hornets, who trailed by seven at halftime, held Utah scoreless for a 7 minute, 30-second stretch in the third quarter. The Jazz missed 12 straight shots and committed three turnovers during the disastrous stretch that enabled New Orleans to take a 57-53 lead.

"It was outstanding, the effort from our bigs and from our guards chasing down long rebounds," New Orleans coach Jeff Bower said of his team's third quarter effort. "I thought across the board defensively in the third quarter we worked really hard and we had to obviously because of what Utah was doing."

The Jazz shot 5-for-20 and were outrebounded 16-9 in the third quarter. Utah scored 11 points in the period and Williams had to hit a 3-pointer as time expired to keep that total from looking even uglier.

"They came with a lot more ammunition in the second half than we did and we had to try to stand up to them," said Jazz coach Jerry Sloan. "They did a good job defensively against us, tried to make us take tough shots, and again, we still turned the ball over."

Carlos Boozer started the game hot, scoring 12 points and collecting seven rebounds in the first quarter. But he picked up his third foul with 7:57 left in the second quarter and was mostly a non-factor the rest of the way.

Of course, the point guard matchup between the No. 3 (Williams) and No. 4 (Paul) picks of the 2005 draft was closely watched. Williams, who recorded his 3,000th assist on Monday and sprained his right wrist in the fourth quarter, got the better of the statistical matchup with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Paul had 12 points and nine assists but picked up what matters most in the rivalry between the two players: the victory.

Paul now has a 3-11 record in games against Williams and the Jazz.

"Just another game, man," Paul said of his matchup with Williams and the Jazz. "No more, no less."
