Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- The New Orleans Hornets ended their season the same way they started it - with a long losing streak. The Hornets completed the worst season in franchise history with an 86-75 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, who got 17 points from rookie Shaun Livingston. After making the playoffs for five straight seasons in the Eastern Conference, New Orleans (18-64) failed to find the same success in its first campaign in the West, opening the season with an eight-game losing streak and closing it with a nine-game skid. "We had a stretch about a month ago where we were playing really good," said guard Dan Dickau, one of nine newcomers on the Hornets' final roster. "Then for one reason or another, we weren't able to close out games, and there were some that we weren't really in. It's frustrating; it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth." The Hornets provided a fitting end to the dismal season, shooting just 34 percent (29-of-86) overall and 1-of-15 from the arc in their 10th consecutive home loss. "I thought we might win 20 or 25 games, but we never reached that," Hornets forward-center P.J. Brown said. "And as the losses keep piling up, you're just ready to get it over because it's depressing after coming up short so many times." New Orleans finished 10-42 against the West and 2-14 in the Southwest Division, where all four of its opponents qualified for the playoffs. "It's more up-tempo in the West," Brown said. "In the Eastern Conference, it's a little bit slower game. You need to be athletic (in the West), and you need to have personnel that can go up and down the floor. "It just seemed like other teams had a few extra people who could put them over the hump, and we didn't." The Clippers pulled away with a 12-2 run in the third quarter. Livingston ignited the spurt with a three-point play to make it 60-49 with just under six minutes on the clock. Livingston added four more points and an assist during the burst, which was capped by Zeljko Rebraca's jumper with 2:25 left that gave Los Angeles a 69-51 advantage. New Orleans got no closer than nine thereafter. "I was just trying to push the ball and try to explore," said Livingston, who averaged 7.4 points but missed more than half the season because of injuries. "Coach wanted me to explore, and I got to find my shot in the process." "Shaun's been playing terrific for us," Los Angeles coach Mike Dunleavy said. "He's got a nice knack of getting into the paint and making plays. His ability to make plays is outstanding. "This year we had him for 30 games. Hopefully we'll have him for more next season. He's going to grow by leaps and bounds." Elton Brand had 18 points and 14 rebounds and Bobby Simmons collected 14 and 11 for the Clippers (37-45), who improved their record by nine games this season and posted their second-best record in 12 years. Simmons, who averaged 16.4 points and is a leading candidate for Most Improved Player, will be a free agent this summer. "There's a great chance," Simmons said of re-signing with the Clippers. "But I'm going to sit down with my agent. It's pretty much going to be one of the biggest decisions of my life." "It's very critical to hold on to Bobby," Brand said. "He's the best shooter on the team, by far. We need him back. Marko Jaric is a free agent. We want to sign these guys up and keep this team strong." Rookie J.R. Smith scored 15 points for the Hornets, whose previous worst season was in 1989-90, when they finished with 19 wins. Smith became the fifth player in 10 seasons to average double figures (10.3) in his first season after being drafted out of high school. The others to accomplish that were Kevin Garnett, Amare Stoudemire, LeBron James and Dwight Howard.
