Collison's triple-double lifts Hornets past Pacers


By Larry Holder, for NBA.com
Posted Friday February 19, 2010 11:54PM

NEW ORLEANS - (NBA.com exclusive) -- The last time New Orleans Hornets rookie point guard Darren Collison nearly compiled a triple double, the injured Chris Paul harassed Collison after the game. Not exactly the reaction you'd expect.

That's because Collison had double figures in points and turnovers while being an assist away from a triple double the wrong way.

Collison went the more traditional triple double route as his 18 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists helped the Hornets move past the Indiana Pacers 107-101 on Friday night at the New Orleans Arena.

The Warriors' Stephen Curry is the only other rookie to record a triple double this season. The last person not named Chris Paul to pile up a triple double for the Hornets was Baron Davis on Jan. 5, 2005.

"It means a lot, but I was just going out there and my teammates were telling me to lead and they'll be supportive," Collison said. "I was just going out there and playing my game. Hopefully I'll get a lot more in my career as I had one today. I was just going out there and helping the team win."

Collison said his teammates made him fully aware of his pending accomplishments throughout the game maybe more out of playful spite than anything else.

"My teammates kept telling me that all of them could have had a triple double, but I kept stealing all of their rebounds," Collison said.

It's the kind of performances the Hornets need from Collison to stick around in the playoff race as the season progresses and New Orleans is without Paul who is nursing an ankle injury.

"That is an amazing thing," said Pacers forward Danny Granger, who scored 29 points. "He has picked up the slack where Chris Paul got hurt. We're not surprised by that at all because he is a terrific player."

The one problem with Collison's night is that it almost turned into a quadruple double the bad way as he committed eight turnovers with six coming in the second half.

Collison wasn't alone in turning the ball over as the Hornets gave it away 20 times Friday night and 59 times in the last three games combined.

"I just think we need a little bit more execution," Collison said. "Granted we don't have all of our players. We need guys to step up, including myself, in the closing minutes. We need to care of the ball for one.

"I take total responsibility for that as a point guard. If I don't turn over the ball at least three or four times than we probably would have won the game by a lot more points. It wouldn't look as ugly. Definitely I'm going to look to see what I can do and help myself so I can better the team."

Collison's night overshadowed a bounce-back outing by David West.

West looked listless and unmotivated during the Hornets' loss to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night scoring a mere five points, which was his weakest scoring output in nearly four years.

Hornets coach Jeff Bower said before Friday night's game against the Indiana Pacers it was simply bad night for West and that he'd be back to normal.

West was better than normal as he scored a team-high 29 points along with nine rebounds and seven assists.

"I just wanted to come out and try to get in rhythm early and I was able to do that and really be aggressive," West said. "Everybody played well I thought in the first half. We really moved the ball. Everybody was in a pretty good groove."

It was Bower's plan all along to have West forget about Wednesday's debacle as soon as the Hornets touched the ball on the opening possession.

"We wanted to put the ball in his hands (Friday) coming out early to give him a chance to get going," Bower said. "He is battling a real deep cold, and I appreciate his effort an awful lot because not only did he play extremely well, but he plays really hard."

Emeka Okafor added 13 points and 13 rebounds aiding in the Hornets' huge advantage in rebounding as New Orleans crushed Indiana on the boards 56-35, which is the largest positive rebound margin for the Hornets this season.

Peja Stojakovic scored 17 points, while Marcus Thornton had 12 points and Morris Peterson had 11 for the Hornets. Mike Dunleavy came off the Pacers bench to score 15 points. Roy Hibbert had 13 points, while Earl Watson and Luther Head each added 11 points.
