Paul's 38 leads Hornets to win in Golden State


By Geoff Lepper, for NBA.com

OAKLAND (NBA.com exclusive) -- Now that the New Orleans Hornets are done shedding players for the sake of avoiding the luxury tax, maybe they can get back to righting their road record with the core that remains.

After selling off backup guard Bobby Brown to the Clippers and shipping starting guard Devin Brown to Chicago for center Aaron Gray to start the week, the Hornets finished off a successful road trip Wednesday with their third win in four games, this one a 123-110 decision over Golden State.

Combined with earlier deals of Rasual Butler and Hilton Armstrong, the Hornets have sloughed off more than $8.5 million in salary obligations since the 2009-10 financial year began. But they still have their core of David West, Peja Stojakovic, Emeka Okafor and, most importantly, point guard Chris Paul, who put together a 38-point, nine-assist, six-rebound performance against the Warriors.

"We've played very well against some of the top teams to this point, and we want to continue on that path, to find out how good we can be," Hornets coach and general manager Jeff Bower said. "I don't feel we've come anywhere close to maximum potential."

With the win, New Orleans (25-20) slipped past Houston and Oklahoma City in the fluid Western Conference standings, and now sits a half-game behind Memphis (25-19) for the eighth spot, indicative of the final playoff qualifier.

"It's another step for us, absolutely," Bower said of potentially reaching the No. 8 spot. "And we know how difficult it will be, especially with our upcoming schedule -- we're playing many of the same teams that we're battling (for a playoff spot)."

New Orleans could make up a lot of ground on the competition if Paul continues his scoring run. On the four-game trip, he averaged 27.8 points per game on 58.8 percent shooting from the floor and made 24 of 25 foul shots -- going 9-for-9 on Wednesday.

"Everyone knows the road has been our Achilles heel," said Paul, referring to the Hornets' 5-17 record away from home before this trip. "That's why it's good to establish ourselves on the road."

One reason the Hornets could get rid of so many backcourt players has been the continued development of rookies Marcus Thornton (18 points on Wednesday) and Darren Collison (12).

"The progress of those guys didn't surprise me, and I'm excited about it," Paul said of the duo. "The luxury of having (Collison) is that when he comes in the game, I can play off the ball. He played four years in college, went to the Final Four and knows how to play the game already."

As for the Warriors, if this was an audition for prospective new owner Larry Ellison, it didn't go so well.

Ellison, the billionaire CEO of Oracle, finally admitted Wednesday to what had been long rumored: That he is indeed trying to buy the Warriors. A MarketWatch.com report quoted Ellison as saying that he's trying to buy the club from majority owner Chris Cohan, but "unfortunately, you can't have a hostile takeover of a basketball team."

The San Jose Mercury News reported in July that Ellison was in serious talks with Cohan, but that the major sticking point was a price. Cohan reportedly has valued the team at $400 million, while Forbes recently pegged its worth at $315 million.

C.J. Watson, starting as part of a three-guard smallball lineup, had his best game of the season for the Warriors, with 23 points on 9-for-14 shooting and five assists before fouling out.

But Golden State could never devise an adequate plan to stop Paul, trying Stephen Curry on him in the first half and Monta Ellis -- returning after a one-game absence due to a right ankle injury -- in the second, both to no avail.

"He wants to kill whoever he's going against every night; he's told me that," said Curry, who worked out with Paul this summer before being selected seventh overall in the 2009 draft. "He doesn't care if you're his best friend or worst enemy. It doesn't matter who you are. . . . He single-handedly kind of took us out of it from the start of the game. That's why he's one of the best point guards in the world."

NOTES: Hornets swingman James Posey left the game in the second quarter with a strained right Achilles tendon and did not return. Bower had no immediate word on how long Posey might be out with the injury. . . . The Warriors signed second-year big man Anthony Tolliver, one of two former D-Leaguers in Oakland on an injury exception, to a second 10-day contract Wednesday. The team is facing a tough decision regarding Cartier Martin, whose second 10-day deal will end after Friday's game; he has impressed at times during his stint, but the Warriors would have to cut loose a player with a guaranteed contract to keep Martin.
