Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- The New Orleans Hornets were on the verge of taking another step toward respectability. Then they lost their floor general. Baron Davis went down with an Achilles injury late in the third quarter and the Toronto Raptors took advantage down the stretch, recording a 102-99 triumph over the Hornets. Seeking their fourth win in five games, New Orleans (5-31) comfortably was ahead, 70-61, when Davis was forced to the sidelines after being kicked in his right Achilles tendon during a scrum under his basket. Davis went to the locker room for treatment, but it did not appear to matter as the Hornets pushed their lead to 93-83 with 5:03 to go. But the Raptors rallied behind Jalen Rose and, as possessions became more and more crucial down the stretch, New Orleans looked lost offensively without Davis. Toronto (15-23) closed the contest with a 19-6 burst, sealing the game in the final five seconds when Rafer Alston hit two free throws and blocked a potential game-tying 3-pointer by Dan Dickau. "It was great way to finish a game," Alston said. "We picked up our intensity, Mo Pete (Peterson) and Jalen really carried us with the scoring down the stretch. It was a good team effort defensively." Davis had 15 points and 11 assists at the time of his injury. "Well, obviously it hurt us," Hornets coach Byron Scott said. "When Baron is in there, he's a guy who can penetrate and make shots for other guys, that's his strength. You know he can make big shots. When he's out you lose that element of your game, which really hurt us in that last quarter." "When Baron went down our momentum went down," Hornets forward Lee Nailon said. "He's an All-Star and when he plays great everybody follows. He was going good and got kicked in his Achilles and had to leave the game, after that we got discombobulated." Peterson had his first double-double of the season with 25 points and 10 rebounds and Chris Bosh added 24 and 10. Rose made just 6-of-15 shots, but scored 11 of his 19 points in the final quarter. "I thought everybody did a great job in the second half and we responded," Peterson said. "That just shows the character of this team." Nailon scored a career-high 32 points for New Orleans. Reserve Chris Anderson matched his career best with 17 points. "When a player like Baron Davis has a double-double in the first half, he allowed the game to be so much easier for Lee Nailon, Chris Andersen and P.J. Brown to get those open shots," Rose said. "I think once he came out of the game that really gave us an advantage, especially with our home crowd." "We just fell apart," Andersen said. "It was tough not having Baron but we should have stepped up and took the challenge, but it was another tough ending." Toronto is 13-5 at home this season with wins in eight of its last nine contests at the Air Canada Centre.
