Hornets Fall On Road Again

Timberwolves had the Hornets their tenth road loss of the season. Chris Paul’s impressive stat line (22 Pts, 6 Reb, 13 Ast, 5 Stl) wasn’t enough as Minnesota pulled away late, winning 113-98.

David West added 23 points, but New Orleans allowed the Timberwolves to shoot 53 percent from the field and 11 for 23 from 3-point range while losing to a team that entered with just seven victories on the season.

“I think this one we’re going to be mad at for a long time,” Paul said. “Of course, you’ve got to get over it, but at the same time, we should have beat this team. Bad, bad, bad loss for us. I don’t know, they just beat us.”

The Timberwolves trailed by three at halftime but Johnson hit four 3-pointers in the third quarter, including three in a row, to help Minnesota build an 11-point lead.

The Timberwolves, the youngest team in the league, have had a heck of a time closing out games so far this season, blowing double-digit leads almost on a nightly basis. The Wolves have blown seven leads of at least 10 points this season, most recently a 15-point third-quarter lead against Utah last week.

The Hornets will welcome the defending NBA champion LA Lakers to New Orleans on Wednesday. Tip-off at the Hive is set for 7:00.
