Paul nabs double-double as Hornets frustrate Kobe, Lakers


By Larry Holder, for NBA.com

NEW ORLEANS (NBA.com exclusive) -- For a team that was just eliminated from playoff contention in their last loss against Portland two days earlier, the New Orleans Hornets certainly didn't lack fervor Monday night against the Los Angeles Lakers.

As the Hornets exuded in fervor, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant expressed his emotions on the court in frustration and fury.

Bryant said he wasn't disappointed following the Lakers' 108-100 loss to the Hornets, but Bryant's postgame temperament sure wasn't too convincing considering his excessive anger he displayed throughout the game.

The Hornets' plan was to keep Bryant out of a rhythm early. New Orleans did that by limiting Bryant to 10 points in the first half. As Bryant eventually found his rhythm in the second half scoring a game-high 31 points on 10 of 18 shooting, the Hornets managed to pile up a lofty lead in the third quarter that never seemed to be threatened.

Even though Bryant scored five points in the first 1:01 of the fourth quarter, the Lakers guard couldn't put the team on his back for one of those patented Bryant comeback moments. And the frustration with the officiating, lack of team consistency or both boiled over on several occasions for everyone in the New Orleans Arena to see.

Bryant's attitude went from saucy to near silent went the media asked him questions following the game.

When asked what happened in losses in New Orleans on Monday and Oklahoma City last week, Bryant simply responded, "We just didn't play well."

Bryant was asked about being upset during the last few minutes and about what was going through his mind, he again responded, "We just didn't play well."

Bryant was again pressed about being upset after he responded to every question with about a five-word answer, Bryant said, "It's for my own good."

Other than Pau Gasol's nice stat line of 26 points and 22 rebounds and Ron Artest's 14 points, the Lakers found little help from anywhere else.

"He was getting double- and triple-teamed, and he was getting the ball to guys for shots and we just didn't shoot the two-point shot well at all," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "We had a couple here and a couple there. We weren't consistent at all."

It's not often a team can frustrate Bryant to the point of anger. So the Hornets' strategy clearly worked.

"We have seen Kobe make so many game-winning shots, so many tiebreaking shots that we wanted to give ourselves enough cushion to avoid that drama," Hornets coach Jeff Bower said. "We were pretty active and a pretty clear understanding of what the threat was to us, especially defensively.

"The fact that Kobe only scored 10 points in the first half was a relief. Our plays were really effective, providing us with scoring and providing us with spacing. Our ability to keep points coming had a great effect on the outcome of the game and we had great plays across the board."

Conversely, the Hornets displayed plenty of fire as six players scored in double figures led by Chris Paul's 15 points and 13 assists. It's by far the longest Paul has played since being sidelined for 25 games with a left knee injury as he played nearly 40 minutes.

Paul received a slew of aid from his teammates. David West added 20 points, and rookies Marcus Thornton and Darren Collison scored 18 and 17 points, respectively.

West didn't want to call a win at this point in the season when it's meaningless in the playoff standings a building block for next year, though.

"All we're doing is just trying to go out and compete," West said. "We know these teams have something to play for so we're just going out giving it what we can do in terms of how well we execute. We'll have games like this when we get going and put them in a tough bind."

Lakers forward Lamar Odom didn't mince words when asked about the team's mindset even though Los Angeles comfortably leads the Western Conference.

"When we don't play defense, and do the intangibles as far as basketball is concerned, it's unacceptable," Odom said. "Especially when you've got a team trying to do their best against you. You've got to play defense. Communication is lacking. The chemistry for some reason is not clicking."
