Recap

Hornets sting Nets for fifth straight win


By Larry Holder, for NBA.com

NEW ORLEANS (NBA.com exclusive) -- The New Orleans Hornets found the easiest way to continue a winning streak on Friday night. They played the New Jersey Nets.

Earning the win over the Nets, though, wasn't as easy as the Hornets may have thought going into the game.

Regardless, the Hornets are officially the hottest team in the league as they won their fifth consecutive game by knocking off the Nets 103-99 in the New Orleans Arena. It's the longest current win streak in the NBA and brought New Orleans' record to 18-16, the most its been above .500 all season.

The Hornets appeared to be in cruise control, leading by double digits through most of the game, but after a Chris Paul turnover led to New Jersey's Courtney Lee hitting two free throws with 11.5 seconds left, the Nets actually took a 99-98 lead.

Paul redeemed himself though, as he scorched past the Nets' Jarvis Hayes for a layup and the foul with 7.6 seconds left to give New Orleans back the lead and the win.

"At the end of the day, it's all about the wins," said Paul, who scored 11 points and racked up 18 assists. "At the end of the year, they're not going to say how much did you beat this team by. Sometimes you've got to win ugly."

David West continued his hot shooting as was 13-of-18 from the field for a game-high 32 points to go along with 10 rebounds. Emeka Okafor had 13 points and 13 rebounds.

"For us we just got to continue to play well and want to play well," West said. "You want to go out and compete and not worry about other teams' records. We have to go out and focus on the fact that wherever we're playing, we're going to have to go out and win the game regardless of the record."

One coaching change hasn't done much good in New Jersey, but the change in New Orleans most certainly has, as Jeff Bower moved to 15-10 since taking over.

Each win pushes the Hornets a little closer into the playoff hunt, but Bower said there's plenty the Hornets will take away from the win over the Nets. And maybe not in a good way.

"Many lessons were learned (Friday night) in many ways. ... We are definitely happy that we won but we, of course, could do better," Bower said.

Calling the Hornets the hottest team in basketball is correct, statistically speaking. Neither West nor Paul are ready to completely buy into the notion, though.

"It's cool," West said. "We've just got to continue to play. We've got to go out and concentrate and be locked in for each particular game. We can't look too far ahead of ourselves. We just got to continue winning the games when we have an opportunity.

"Momentum is part of the thing with winning. You get an opportunity to close games out. It's just something you've got to continue to carry over especially going back out on the road. We've got to continue to press and impose our will and our athleticism against other teams. That will give us a chance at more success."

Paul added: "We're not going to get ahead of ourselves. We've got to keep playing and keep doing what we are doing. We're playing pretty good basketball right now. We're going out and expecting to win. As long as we go out with that mindset, we've got a chance."

The resurrection process has come much quicker for the Hornets after Bower replaced Byron Scott and not nearly fast enough for Nets coach Kiki Vandeweghe. The new Nets coach is 3-17 since taking over for the fired Lawrence Frank. The Nets have now lost 14 of their last 15 games.

And while the Hornets players may not acknowledge their "hot" status, the Nets coach spoke up for them.

"We gave ourselves a chance to win at the end," Vandeweghe said. "I was proud of our guys. This is one of the hottest teams in the NBA at the moment."
