Nuggets 93, Hornets 117

By  | 

It's a nine-game winning streak and counting for the red-hot New Orleans Hornets. Chris Paul had 23 points, 17 assists, and nine rebounds and the Hornets ran away from Denver 117-93.

Even in a game featuring recently elected All-Star starter Allen Iverson, Paul was the best player on the floor in this game. Iverson also scored 23, but had only three assists and got little help other than from Kenyon Martin, who scored 18.

Peja Stojakovic hit four 3-pointers and finished with 19 points for New Orleans.
