Hornets (20-37), Kings (19-38)

It was over when… Ryan Anderson drilled a three-pointer from the left wing, giving New Orleans a 100-85 lead with 4:07 remaining, while also ensuring free French fries for fans by eclipsing the century mark in points. New Orleans went on to record one of its most convincing victories of the season, the second time in the last four home games that the Hornets prevailed by 15 points or more.

Hornets MVP: Anthony Davis (20 points, 8 rebounds) did some solid work prior to the All-Star break, but since the multi-day midseason hiatus, he looks like a different player. With a renewed focus on running the floor in transition and capitalizing on his unique athleticism and wingspan, the 6-foot-10 Davis appears to be doing a better job of playing to his strengths. The results have been evident lately, in the form of frequent easy baskets and slams. For instance, in Sunday’s game, the No. 1 overall pick had six dunks among his nine baskets. Several Hornets said that Monty Williams recently emphasized to the team’s frontcourt players the advantages of outhustling opposing big men down the floor. Davis’ highlight reel has grown exponentially in part due to the simple change in approach.
