Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- Baron Davis and rookie J.R. Smith provided too much energy for the road-weary Sacramento Kings. Davis recorded his fourth career triple-double with 26 points, 17 assists and 10 rebounds and Smith matched a season high with 23 points as the New Orleans Hornets snapped a 10-game losing streak with a 121-117 overtime victory over the Kings. New Orleans improved to 1-4 in overtime games this season while Sacramento, which was playing its fourth road game in five days, dropped to 1-2. Maybe it was something they ate. Smith visited Davis for lunch a few hours earlier - baked ziti for Smith, smoked salmon for Davis - but Davis, a sixth-year Hornet and a two-time All-Star, also gave the 19-year-old rookie some food for thought. "I told him to keep his head up," Davis said. "Coach has a lot of love for him, but at the same time, he has to get better. It's not up to the coaches, it's not up to anybody else." Smith made 4-of-6 3-pointers and New Orleans was 13-of-26 from the arc, including 8-of-11 in the final 23 minutes. The Hornets came into the game last in the NBA in 3-point shooting; Smith was at 22 percent from the arc. "I'm shooting the ball with confidence," said Smith, who made both his 3-pointers in overtime and is 9-of-16 from the arc in the last five games. "I'm believing in myself a lot more. I know I can play with these guys." Mike Bibby sent the game into overtime with a 3-pointer with 2.5 seconds left in regulation, then had an assist and a jumper to make it 107-102 with 4:20 remaining. But the Kings couldn't hold on. After a pair of free throws by P.J. Brown drew the Hornets within three, Davis took over. He hit a 3-pointer to tie it, then stole the ball at the other end and fed Dan Dickau for an easy layup to put New Orleans ahead, 109-107. Bibby evened the score with a jumper, but Dickau's 3-pointer gave the Hornets the lead for good, 112-109, with 2:31 to go. "We got up five in overtime, and I thought at that time we should've taken control of the game," Sacramento coach Rick Adelman said. "But (the Hornets) scored seven points in less than a minute, and that gave the momentum right back to them." Smith - averaging 4.8 points for the season but 11.5 in the last six games - kept the Kings at bay with consecutive shots from the arc, pushing the advantage to 118-113 with a minute on the clock. "I told him from now on, I'm basically going to be his big brother," Davis said. "He's going to learn how to play NBA basketball. We'll watch tape, and I'm going to try to mentor him as much as possible. He's got a world of talent and he's willing to learn." Dickau and Rodney Rogers each scored 15 points and Bostjan Nachbar scored a career-high 14 for New Orleans (3-29). Peja Stojakovic scored a season-high 37 points and Chris Webber collected 22 and 13 rebounds for Sacramento (21-11), which went 2-2 on its road trip. "No excuses," Bibby said. "(The Hornets) played a good game. They hit a lot of shots at the end. We tried to hang in there, but they kept hitting shots. You have good days and bad days. You never know what to expect." Bibby scored all but four of his 20 points after halftime. He had made just 3-of-16 shots before forcing overtime with his 3-pointer. Webber missed a shot from the arc with six seconds left, but Stojakovic grabbed the rebound and quickly got the ball to Bibby. "I didn't even know we were down by three," Bibby said. "I just shot it and tried to get it up. I never realized we were down three until I noticed everybody on our team was happy. Peja made a good pass, and I was open." The loss was just Sacramento's third in its last 11 road games. "(New Orleans) played a solid game and deserved to win," Adelman said. "They had seven guys in double figures. They made big shots. Despite what their record is, they've got talent on their team. They finally got their heads up, and they got some confidence."
