Hornets Continue Downward Spiral

Something has to be wrong with Chris Paul’s knee. All the best players go through slumps, but this is beyond a slump. A slump would be welcome compared to this. To be outplayed by Kyle Lowry, Jose Calderon, and Toney Douglas in 4 days does not happen to one of the best players in the world, not even on a bad night. With Paul’s play suffering, the Hornets continue to fall apart, losing again on Wednesday night in NY 107-88. Here is more from espn.com and the AP.

Toney Douglas also scored 24 points in place of an injured Chauncey Billups, outplaying slumping Hornets All-Star Chris Paul in the point guard matchup. Shawne Williams finished with 16 points off the bench, 11 in the third quarter when the Knicks broke open the game.

Anthony was held below 25 points for the first time in his five games with the Knicks, but that’s only because he sat out the fourth quarter of New York’s sixth straight win over New Orleans, matching its longest current winning streak against any opponent.

Jarrett Jack scored 21 points and David West had 16 for the Hornets, who have lost three straight, six of eight and 12 of 16.

To add injury to insult, Trevor Ariza left the game with an injury, the severity of which is currently unknown. Chris Paul is hurt, though he may not admit it. And so the downward spiral continues. Next up, a trip to Memphis against a red hot Grizzly team that spanked San Antonio on Tuesday. While the Grizzlies continue to climb up the standings, the Hornets continue to fall.
