Chris Paul was held scoreless for the first time in his six year career Sunday night in Memphis. The Grizzlies dominated the Hornets in the paint, and everywhere else on the court, beating New Orleans by the score of 111-89.
On the day the Hornets learned they lost David West for the season, New Orleans went into Phoenix and won for the fifth time in their last seven games. Carl Landry, starting at PF for the injured West, scored 19 points, helping the Hornets beat the Suns 106-100.
New Orleans lost their third in a row in Portland Wednesday night. The effort was good, but the Trail Blazers were better, winning 103-96. David West had 27 for the Hornets, but it was the other power forward who was the player of the game. LaMarcus Aldridge reminded the NBA that he should be playing in the all-star game.
Chris Paul and the Hornets had a fantastic first quarter. Marco Belinelli played great off the bench. When it comes to positives for New Orleans Tuesday night, that's about it. Other than those two things, it was overall an embarrassing performance, as the Hornets fell to the Warriors 102-89.
Jarrett Jack was the biggest, and best piece of a 5 player trade two weeks ago between the Hornets and Raptors. While no one will doubt Jack's skills, it's been slower than expected in regards to learning the Hornets system.
