Recap

Hornets grab six straight wins


By John N. Mitchell, for NBA.com

WASHINGTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- As the Washington Wizards whittled away and eventually erased what had been a substantial lead, New Orleans Hornets coach Jeff Bower didn't have to reach back very far to find a teachable moment.

Facing the New Jersey Nets two days prior, the Hornets blew a 15-point lead and needed some huge plays down the stretch to earn a victory and push their winning streak to five games. So when the Wizards, playing at home, came back from 14 down Sunday and threatened to end their streak, the Hornets knew what to do.

"It seems like when we are getting stops we have a higher execution rate at the other end," New Orleans coach Jeff Bower said after the Hornets staved off the Wizards 115-110 to establish a season-high six-game winning streak. "We understand the nature of the game and that we can't be comfortable with leads that evaporate like they have the last couple of days. We have to maintain our focus to keep that to a minimum."

In winning their sixth straight, the Hornets were fortunate that in Washington they had a willing accomplice, a team with no focus at the most critical junctures of yesterday's matinee. Plagued by turnovers all day (19 total), the Wizards committed their three most costly in the final 2:30 seconds of the game.

Shortly after New Orleans' Chris Paul -- 26 points and a game-high 14 assists -- gave the Hornets a 103-101 advantage with a 15-footer, Washington's Nick Young, trying to feed Brendan Haywood for what could have been an easy dunk or layup, threw the ball where he thought Haywood would be.

Shortly thereafter, with the Hornets on top 107-101, Young again lost the ball on another errant pass. And for the last turnover of the game, this one committed by Randy Foye -- who finished with a season-high 23 points and led the Wizards in assists (8) -- lost the ball with 37.9 seconds to play and his team trailing, 109-104.

"We weren't aggressive enough, said Foye, starting in place of indefinitely suspended guard Gilbert Arenas. "When you are not aggressive and you are passive then you are going to have turnovers. When you are aggressive and you attack, when you've made up your mind about what you are going to do as soon as you start dribbling the ball, you are going to make a good play."

Paul, whom Foye called the best point guard in the league afterwards, was the best player on the floor, but he also got some help from a number of other players. Peja Stojakovic added 20 points, David West finished with 15 -- as did Marcus Thornton off the bench -- James Posey, also in reserve, added 11, and Devon Brown added eight points.

The Hornets were particularly dangerous from long range, connecting on 13 of 23 3-point attempts.

However, the Wizards, winners of just five of their last 18 games, dominated from a statistical standpoint. Led by Antawn Jamison's game-high 32 points and eight rebounds, the Wizards connected on almost 58 percent of their field goals (44 for 47). With Haywood pulling down a game-high 14 rebounds to go with 14 points the Wizards rebounded substantially better (41-29), and they also blocked seven shots -- four by Haywood - compared to just two by the Hornets.

But the Hornets defense proved to be the difference in the second quarter. That's when New Orleans held the Wizards almost five minutes without a free throw and forced them into eight turnovers.

The Hornets took advantage here, going on an 18-3 that turned what had been a 38-34 Washington lead with 8:46 left in the first half into a 52-41 New Orleans' advantage with just more than two minutes left in the first half.

"If we continue to turn the ball over as we do, these are the results we are going to keep seeing," Wizards coach Flip Saunders said. "Our turnovers in the second quarter gave them a great opportunity to get a big lead, and our turnovers gave them the win. I think at one point late in the game we had three turnovers in four possessions. You can't do that when you are playing a team with Chris Paul.

Meanwhile, the Hornets and their confidence continue to grow.

"We have a team that if we put ourselves in position to win, most of the time, I'm not going to say all of the time, we are going to find a way to win in the fourth quarter. We have guys that are capable of making shots and big plays."
