MVP

Tyson Chandler, a Kevin Garnett wannabe when he came out of high school in 2001, outplayed the role model with 16 points, 18 rebounds and four blocked shots. He made eight of his nine shots.

THE STAT

11-1 The Hornets have failed once in 12 tries to win when leading a home game after three quarters.

AP-PAUL-ING

The Hornets led 76-75 with 4:49 left when guard Chris Paul found Desmond Mason for a layup. A minute later, Paul hit a jumper. And at 2:19, he stole the ball and turned a layup into a three-point play to cap a 9-0 run.
