Emeka Okafor hit a miraculous shot as time expired in regulation. The improbable banker forced overtime in Salt Lake City. The Hornets took care of business in the extra period, earning a 121-117 victory. David West however, had to be wheeled off the court in the 4th quarter with an injury to his left knee. West led N.O. with 29 points.
Having watched the Hornets all season, it's evident that Chris Paul is not the player he was before his knee injury. He's lost that first step, which was arguably his best weapon. However, he's improved other aspects of his game to make up for what he's lost.
Shocking news from the NBA today as Jazz all-star point guard Deron Williams was traded to the New Jersey Nets. In the trade, Utah receives F Derrick Favors, G Devin Harris, a first round draft pick, and cash.
Jerry Sloan, the longest-tenured coach in American pro sports, resigned today. Sloan was in the middle of his 23rd season with the Utah Jazz. His old school coaching mentality in the NBA represented a dying breed, where the only authority in sports came from the head coach.
It was perhaps the best performance of the year for the New Orleans Hornets. After the biggest comeback in franchise history Wednesday night, the Hornets followed it up with a dominant beatdown Friday evening of a Utah Jazz team that has had their number the last few years.
