Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) - With the starters struggling, the New Orleans Hornets got big games off the bench from Lee Nailon, Chris Andersen and P.J. Brown. Nailon scored 19 points and Brown and Andersen took over down the stretch to lead the Hornets to 96-86 victory over the reeling Atlanta Hawks, who have lost 13 straight games. In the fourth quarter, Brown scored eight of his 13 points and Andersen had seven of his 12. Andersen collected eight rebounds and six blocks as he picked up the slack for the starters, none of whom scored in double figures for the second time in three games. "Our second unit came in and did a great job executing," Hornets coach Byron Scott said. "We came out in the second half and played better. Bench guys came in and put the game away." "It was a good effort all around," Andersen said. "Focusing down the stretch is what we've been doing well." The same could not be said for the hapless Hawks, who crumbled once again down the stretch. Atlanta held a three-point lead late in the third quarter when New Orleans went on a 13-2 run capped by Nailon's basket that made it 76-68 with 8:40 left in the fourth period. "We were able to change the game by forcing the action in the transition game," Brown said. "We were trying to get some easy looks. I thought our execution on offense got very good in the second half. We started looking for the open man and making the extra pass, and that's when it got easy." Tony Delk's 3-pointer cut the deficit to 90-86 with 2:09 remaining, but second-chance baskets by Brown and Andersen rebuilt the lead to eight points and sealed the game. "They were just in great position," Scott said. "We had them scrambling a little bit and taking shots that were pretty good shots with guys flying at us. And you have P.J. and 'Big Bird' (Andersen) down there and we got some big rebounds and put-backs from them, which really stopped their momentum." "I thought Andersen and P.J. Brown really hurt us down the stretch," Hawks coach Mike Woodson said. "Their bench was pretty doggone good tonight." The game between the worst teams in each conference lived up to its billing, including an embarrassing stretch in the fourth quarter where rookie Josh Smith and Tyronn Lue of Atlanta missed successive uncontested layups and Nailon's errant pass to Andersen nailed a fan seated in the front row. The Hawks jumped out to an early 14-4 lead before New Orleans went on a 12-0 run to claim a 26-22 edge in the second period. Atlanta pulled even at the break at 38-38 before sputtering in the fourth quarter. "We got off to such a good start with our first unit," Woodson said. "We struggled a little bit off the bench tonight. So I tried to play my first unit all the minutes, and I think they ran out of juice down the stretch." "They kept making big plays, and we didn't," added Hawks forward Tom Gugliotta, who tallied a season-high 18 points and 12 rebounds starting in place of the injured Al Harrington. "They made plays at the end. We made some, but not enough." Tony Delk scored 18 points and rookie Smith added 17 and 10 rebounds for Atlanta, who have dropped 26 of their last 27 games.
