Hornets Rest Players, Lose In Dallas

In their regular season finale in Dallas, the Hornets played a solid first half, leading the Mavericks 61-58. The second half was a different story, as New Orleans rested key players and only scored 28 second half points. The result was a dominant 121-89 victory forĀ  the Mavericks. Here is more from the AP and

While the Hornets didn’t get the feel-good performance they wanted, at least they got some rest. No starter played more than 26 minutes.

Jarrett Jack led New Orleans with 22 points. Marco Belinelli had 14 points and Paul had seven points and eight assists.

“We let our guard down a bit in the second half,” New Orleans coach Monty Williams said.

He and Paul preferred to look ahead to the playoffs. Despite going in following three straight crushing losses, Williams remained optimistic.

“We’re in this position because we’ve done some things well and we can’t lose sight of that,” he said.

The lone bright spot for the Hornets Wednesday night was Jarrett Jack. He continues to be New Orleans top threat off the bench. If the Hornets want to win any playoff games, Jack will need to continue his superb play.
