Hornets 93, Lakers 88

NEW ORLEANS — The Lakers are in a fight they might not have expected from the New Orleans Hornets, dropping Game 4 tonight. A victory would have put the Hornets on the brink of elimination. Instead, the Lakers will look to try to take the lead in the series in Game 5 on Tuesday at Staples Center. Game 6 will be back in the New Orleans Arena on Thursday. Chris Paul led the Hornets with 27 points, 13 rebounds and 15 assists for his second career playoff triple-double. Kobe Bryant had 17 points, one of three Lakers to score in double figures. He turned his left ankle late in the game, however.
