Recap

Hornets stave off Thunder, collect fourth straight victory

OKLAHOMA CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- The New Orleans Hornets still love playing inside Oklahoma City's Ford Center. The arena was their home for two years while the city of New Orleans recovered from Hurricane Katrina.

With his former fans roaring against him Wednesday night, Hornets All-Star point guard Chris Paul drove the lane and silenced the Oklahoma City crowd with a layup that gave his team the cushion it needed in a 97-92 win over the Thunder.

"I love being here," Paul said in a jubilant Hornets locker room. "I still have a special feeling for this place. After all, it's where I played my first two years in the league."

But after a warm welcome by the crowd during player introductions, it quickly became a hostile atmosphere for New Orleans, something Paul and his teammates weren't used to.

"Yeah they booed me a couple times," Paul said. "That was something different. I was thinking 'Oh come on guys I thought you were my fans.'"

Many clearly still are, with several No. 3 Hornets jerseys spotted in the crowd, but even those fans roared against their one-time favorite team when the game was on the line in the fourth quarter.

Oklahoma City carried an 81-79 advantage into the final frame, coming off a 35-point third quarter. The offense, though, apparently didn't make the trip down the stretch.

"We didn't get any stops in the third quarter and then we didn't have any offense in the fourth quarter," said a disappointed Thunder coach Scott Brooks.

The Thunder (19-16) managed to score only 11 points on just 3-for-14 shooting in the final stanza. New Orleans couldn't get much going either with 18 points on 6-for-17 shooting.

"It was tough," Paul admitted. "But we gave ourselves a chance. I think we've been showing a lot of fight lately. To be a really good team you have to be able to win on the road."

The Hornets (17-16) have now won consecutive games in two of the most difficult environments to play in in the NBA, Salt Lake City and Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City star forward Kevin Durant had 27 points to lead his team but scored only 2 in the fourth quarter free throws. He was 0-for-2 shooting.

"We've got to do a better job of getting him the ball," Brooks said. "I have to do a better job drawing up plays, Russ has to do a better job finding him for shots and Kevin has to do a better job getting open."

David West led the Hornets with 19 points and eight rebounds. Emeka Okafor had 15 points and eight rebounds while Paul had 14 points, six coming in the fourth quarter. He also contributed a game-high 13 assists.

In addition to Durant's 27 points, Oklahoma City's Jeff Green ended a brief shooting slump with 20 points. Nenad Krstic and Russell Westbrook each scored 11 with Westbrook adding nine assists.

New Orleans led by as many as eight points several times in the first half thanks to a series of five- and six-point runs only to have the Thunder reel them back in with short runs of their own.

That trend continued through the rest of the game.

Oklahoma City dominated New Orleans down low, on the fast break and in second-chance points. The Thunder outscored the Hornets 50-38 in the paint, 19-8 on second chance points and 15-0 on fast breaks.

It didn't matter at the end.

"They had only five offensive rebounds in the game but they had that big one at the end," Brooks said.
