Hornets (25-46), Nuggets (49-23)

It was over when… Anthony Davis soared over the Denver defense, throwing down a highlight-reel putback dunk to give New Orleans a 103-84 lead with roughly three minutes remaining. In what will be viewed around the league as a stunning result, the Hornets ended the Nuggets’ 15-game winning streak in blowout fashion. New Orleans did so without either member of its starting backcourt, with both Greivis Vasquez and Eric Gordon ruled out of being able to play earlier in the day Monday. All of the sudden, the Hornets are playing some of their best basketball of the season, now winners of three straight, all against 2013 playoff teams (Boston, Memphis, Denver).
