Hornets 108, Lakers 100

NEW ORLEANS — No misprint, the Lakers really did lose to the going nowhere New Orleans Hornets tonight. They’ll need a victory Wednesday over the Atlanta Hawks to post a winning record on their five-game trip. So far, it’s been win one, lose one, win one, lose one. The Lakers didn’t play with any sense of urgency until it was too late tonight. Chris Paul, Darren Collison and somebody by the name of Marcus Thornton had carved them up by then. The Lakers didn’t have much of anything going. Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 31 points and Pau Gasol had 26 points and 22 rebounds. David West had 20 points for New Orleans, Thornton had 18, Collison had 17 and Paul had 15 points and 13 assists.
