1.27: Highlights- Hornets vs. Warriors
We take you to oracle work. Monta Ellis made his return after missing those couple of years of bad ankle injury but get this the Warriors second game -- back to back. Not good they're two point seven going into this one and second games of back to back both wins came against the lowly. Timberwolves. Burly first quarter Corey Maggette remember on Tuesday started the game over Ford -- his first shot in this one so. Rear -- sigh of relief there actually word got out of the gate great -- nine not to make an eleven knots in my updated this to be getting. But later in the first -- it's gone to a two point deficit. And then. Things -- interest thing a near turn -- or Maggette gets the ball the one day old looking for a parade his first shot of the game very supportive back up. I want to bend down for midway through the second Montag all the that is nasty. Is why maybe shoot -- in the all star game the drive this -- but 49 all late this senator Chris Paul collision on a pretty good there. Wow man is he ever that pull up jumper and New Orleans up seven at the break still -- early in the third step current what are you doing. Sloppy turnovers starts the break the other way Marcus Thornton is gonna finish for the Hornets to New Orleans up nine meg just nine seconds later. CJ Watson get involved season actually pretty good game it long food there yet this season nine point three and the game just a seven point different -- moments later Chris Paul. Not only scoring but rebounding and then get -- the Florida gov or is that what you wanna give his third led by as raised point four. Good morals up big in the fourth stepped curry trying to -- come back. He'd pull up jumper. But New Orleans of fifteenth -- minutes -- on Monday trying to make big game. Might take offense -- nineteen that was part of a fifteen hour ride that cut the deficit to twelve but it was just too much crisp fall. We want to very finished with 38 in the orange win going away -- 43. 21 tend to dominate was involved in this one just not the way the Warriors were like sports all five Hornets starters netted double figures with -- David West and Emeka Okafor pitching in with double doubles. In fact after the big night from Chris Paul the Hornets worked on the glass what is the biggest reason for this outcome is they dominated the dubs on the boards 46. Thirty want let's begin our breakdown of this one by making a press pass to Jimmy -- live in the. -- they Don Nelson said after the game he expected the team to come out with a little bit more energy tonight because they were getting Monta Ellis back in the lineup that Seth curry said afterwards. That probably bad back to back really you know had a toll on the Warriors tonight because they didn't have enough energy. And ultimately it was Chris Paul who just killed and 38 points one off of his season high. -- no answer for Chris Paul mean again as some would have more. But it puts an amount every chance would have it goes for 38 minutes of it I don't know what it was. What decision incredible player. When. The car won't -- have a practice tomorrow with our wounds and accurately Charlotte. Too much if they start these first. It was his night -- zone you hitter and he was it to the basket. No more you can set -- here. Cruz has -- here in this thing. -- very good children game may have place pessimism though. You know see really -- in this. Starting games so. That's where -- of this former. Now curry and called pretty good friends they trained together in this summer and curry was also asked if maybe I was a little bit extra motivation for Polly said not at all it doesn't matter who he's facing he's always a competitor Dave. I think Jamie here's a look at just how good Chris Paul was on this night 38 point Steve field goal percentage. On worldly 73 point 7%. Nine assists he was nine of nine from the free throw line he also science over his season average of autographs for the game so it was really all over at oracle.
