Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- While the New Orleans Hornets look ahead to their future, they are still getting a solid contribution from old standby P.J. Brown. Brown led a strong outing by the front line with 16 points and 13 rebounds, lifting the Hornets to a 111-107 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. New Orleans' starting forwards of Lee Nailon and rookie Jackson Vroman combined with Brown to score 42 points on 19-of-25 shooting with 21 rebounds, 10 assists and just one turnover. Nailon, who made his final six shots, led a 19-8 third-quarter charge with 12 straight points for New Orleans, which took an 85-73 lead into the fourth period. Brown, who is 13 rebounds shy of matching Larry Johnson for the franchise's all-time record, capped the burst with a pair of free throws and helped New Orleans maintain its advantage throughout the final period. A 12-year veteran in his fifth season with the Hornets, Brown hit a jumper with 4:11 left to open a 99-91 lead. After the Bucks fought back within a basket, Brown buried a shot from the foul line to put his club ahead, 104-100, with 42 seconds to go. "P.J.'s a vet. He's what you call a pro," Nailon said. "Tonight, and other nights, he brings it. If there's one guy to follow, it's P.J. Brown." Brown added a season-high six assists and ranks 15th in the NBA with 23 double-doubles, showing few effects of a difficult season for the Hornets. "I'm going to keep playing hard," the 35-year-old Brown said. "Twenty-one (games) to go and I know the playoffs are out of reach, but we're all going to be professional and play hard." Rookie J.R. Smith, who missed a pair of critical free throws with 1.5 seconds remaining in a one-point overtime loss to New Jersey on Wednesday, made 3-of-4 from the line in the final four seconds to help seal the victory. "I was just hoping to win the game, period. To win it at the line was a bigger plus," Smith said. "I wasn't thinking about (the New Jersey game). Free throws is just repetition - going to the line and shooting it the way you always do it. It's something I have to keep working on." Smith and Dan Dickau each scored 17 points for New Orleans, which finished a 3-2 homestand. Despite missing three free throws for the second straight game, Smith is shooting 73 percent in the last nine contests, his best stretch this season. "I'm just happy for (J.R.) that it happened so quickly," Brown said. "This will be a big builder for his confidence. He's going to be in that situation a lot more. He'll be at the line. He's going to have the ball in his hands, and he's going to be a go-to-guy in the near future." The Hornets (14-47) produced their third-highest point total of the season, had seven double-figure scorers and snapped a two-game home losing streak. They took the lead for good by shooting 79 percent (15-of-19) in the third quarter. "This homestand wasn't as successful as we wanted. We thought we could really go 5-0," Brown said. "But we go 3-2 and leave for San Antonio with a good taste in our mouth." Michael Redd scored 10 points in the first and fourth quarters and finished with 29 points for Milwaukee, which fell to 0-10 on the road vs. Western Conference opponents. "We played poorly tonight overall and still had a chance to win the game," Redd said. "We have to finish close games off. The last three or four games have been close, but we haven't finished them off." The Bucks (25-36) had a chance to tie in the closing moments, but Maurice Williams could not handle a pass from Desmond Mason before stepping out of bounds. "(The referee) could've looked the other way because it wasn't blatantly out of bounds," said Williams, who had 19 points and seven assists. "They said my toe was out on the line. There was no argument. My thing was there was 3.6 seconds left. I just wanted us to have a shot, and we didn't even get one. But it wasn't a bad call at all."
