The Hornets beat the T-Wolves

Life is good, isn't it?


The Hornets continued to roll yesterday with a nifty 99-96 win in Minneapolis (box | recap | video | photos). Chris Paul busted out for a career-high 35 points, while Peja Stojakovic provided the killer blow, knocking down a triple with less than a second to go. Afterwards, I took off all my clothes and climbed on the roof, but everybody's different.

News and notes and stuff, just like grandma used to make…

  • Chris Paul shot 12-of 18 from the floor, dished out six assists and grabbed five rebounds. He was unstoppable down the stretch, scoring or assisting on all but three of the Hornets' final 21 points. Also, after the game, he allegedly touched a blind kid on the shoulder and now that kid can see.
  • They're pretty happy about Peja's clutchness over on the HR boards.
  • Tyson Chandler was back in the lineup, but didn't play the best game of his life. He finished with 4 points, 6 rebounds and 4 fouls in 28 minutes.
  • Also back from injury was Marc Jackson, who scored 6 and grabbed 3 in his first game of the season.
  • Meanwhile, Brandon Bass and Hilton Armstrong combined for zero points and three rebounds. Maybe their daddies loved them after all.
  • I could throw out some more stats, or you could just look at the boxscore and see for yourself. Yeah, let's go with that idea.

So the Hornets are now 7-3 on the season, which is like super cool given the tough schedule they've had. Not that they've played great teams, but they've been on the road a lot and you know what I mean.

Next up is Miami on Tuesday, meaning the Hornets have another two-day rest. I should be past this hangover by then.
