Hornets-Lakers notebook

THE FACTS: Hornets forward Carl Landry has been there, done that.

Underdog? Landry said he relishes that role as the Hornets steamrolled over the Lakers in the fourth quarter to take a shocking 109-100 victory and a 1-0 series lead against the two-time defending champions Sunday at Staples Center.

If anyone should know anything about being slighted, it's Landry.

Two years ago, Landry and the inexperienced Rockets did the unthinkable, taking Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals and pushing the Lakers to a Game 7 before bowing out to the eventual champs. "I definitely did," said Landry of whether he talked to his teammates about that series before Sunday's game. "I'm sure that meant a lot to the guys in the locker room...that definitely gives me confidence and by me telling my teammates about the situation I was in two years ago, I'm sure it gives them confidence too."

The seventh-seeded Hornets, who shot 51.9 percent from the field and look forward to Wednesday's Game 2, had success on several levels. It all started with their leader Chris Paul, who had a dynamite game, scoring 14 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter and dishing out 14 assists. Landry, who had 17, was explosive too, going around the Lakers' Pau Gasol at will. The bench was key as well, outscoring the Lakers' 39-21.

Outside of Kobe Bryant, who had a game-high 34 points on 13-for-26 shooting, and Ron Artest (16 points and 11 rebounds), the second-seeded Lakers couldn't get a rhythm going. It's been the same story of late.

Los Angeles limped into the postseason, losing five straight and then nearly dropping their final two regular season games to San Antonio and Sacramento. Asked whether there has been any carryover from their regular season struggles, Lakers guard Shannon Brown wasn't sure. "I don't know," he said. "I hope not. It shouldn't be. There's no reason we should've played with no energy, no life."

The Lakers were blitzed and bloodied in the first half, trailing 55-47. New Orleans used their quickness to perfection as it took advantage of two particular matchups: Pau Gasol on Landry and Artest on Marco Belinelli. Both Landry and Belinelli went around their defender time after time as they combined for 27 points on 10-for-22 shooting.

The Hornets led by as many as 12, 52-40, with 54.1 second left in the second quarter, and then things got interesting. Gasol got cut open below the left eye by DJ Mbenga's chin. Bryant sank a fallaway jumper and slid backwards into the courtside seats. It is uncertain whether Bryant slid into a spectator's leg or into an empty courtside seat. Bryant was down on his stomach, holding his neck for the final 10 seconds of the game. He did walk off the court on his own. A Lakers spokesperson said Bryant has a bruised neck.

Los Angeles did get back into the game thanks to Bryant's 11 points in the third quarter, trimming the deficit to 73-72 after the third quarter. The fourth quarter was all New Orleans, however. Los Angeles did whittle away at the lead, 90-87 with 5:54, but that was the closest they would get as Paul took over late in the game.

QUOTABLE: "We were courageous. We weren't scared at all. People think New Orleans is without David West and they're undersized and that the Lakers swept us four times in the regular season. That's cool. I've been here and done that. We took the Lakers to seven games (when I was in Houston)."

-- Landry on how his team played and how Landry's past has given his team confidence.

QUOTABLE II: "It's been happening all year, we've been losing a game or two against a team we're supposed to beat. If we don't control the momentum and don't get guys involved in the game, we're going to lose, especially when the other team is pretty keyed up to play against you. We never controlled that game, from the beginning to the end, at any point."

-- Lakers forward Lamar Odom on what went wrong.

QUOTABLE III: "I'm disappointed. I'm stunned, surprised."

-- Gasol on the loss.

THE STAT: 12-22 -- The Lakers all-time record in any round when losing Game 1.

THE STAT 2: 18 -- The number of points the Hornets outscored the Lakers in the paint (52-34).

TURNING POINT: After a pair of Artest free throws to make the game 90-87 in the fourth quarter with under six minutes to play, Paul answered back with two straight jumpers, pushing New Orleans' lead to 94-87. The Lakers never recovered.

HOT: For the Hornets, Paul had a virtuoso performance. His line: 33 points on 11-for-18 shooting, 14 assists, seven rebounds and four steals. Unlike the Lakers, who couldn't get everyone involved in the game, Paul got his teammates involved early, dishing out eight assists in the first quarter.

QUOTABLE IV: "Yeah, I just felt good tonight. The guys will tell you I've struggled all season long, you know, trying to figure out where to pick my spots. But it's the playoffs, it's the playoffs, man. It's a whole nother energy, it's a whole nother thing."

-- Paul on his stellar outing in Game 1.

NOT: It was a tie between the Hornets Trevor Ariza and the Lakers frontcourt. Ariza scored six points on 2-for-13 shooting. He made his first basket of the game and then went 1-for-12 the rest of the way. The Lakers frontline was missing in action. Gasol finished with eight points on 2-for-9 shooting. Andrew Bynum, who started the game after missing the final two regular season games with a hyperextended right knee, had 13 points on 4-for-7 shooting. Odom scored 10 points, six of which came in garbage time in the final 30 seconds of the game.

INSIDE THE ARENA: President and CEO of AEG Tim Leiweke was right in the middle of the action when Bryant bruised his neck before halftime. It is unclear whether Bryant hit his neck on Leiweke's leg or if Bryant crashed into an empty courtside seat.

NOTABLE: The Hornets bench was key. Jarrett Jack led all reserves with 15 points. Aaron Gray, who had a season-high 12 points on 5-for-5 shooting, was huge, but his status is still up in the air after twisting his right ankle at the 1:07 mark of the fourth quarter. The injury looked pretty severe as Gray was writhing in pain after his ankle touched the floor. After the game, Gray declined to comment when NBA.com asked him how he was doing. A Hornets spokesperson told NBA.com that he is listed as day-to-day with an ankle sprain. Gray was on crutches and put minimal weight on his right foot. "Hopefully he's alright," Landry said. "He definitely played well tonight. We're going to need him on Wednesday." Just how important will Gray be for the Hornets the rest of the series? Lakers coach Phil Jackson admitted that Gray was "outplaying our big guys today." ... Okafor, who had four points and two rebounds, had a forgettable postseason opener. He was in foul trouble all game and eventually fouled out. ... Hornets guard Willie Green, who finished with eight points, had an embarrassing moment in the fourth quarter. The career 75.6-percent free throw shooter airballed his and-1 free throw at the 9:56 mark. The ball barely grazed the net. ... The Hornets committed three turnovers to the Lakers' 13.

UP NEXT: Game 2 is Wednesday at 10:30 p.m. ET in Los Angeles.
