Paul scores 38, but Spurs beat HornetsPosted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports: Chris Paul was mad. He threw his hands down, screamed at the referee and was summarily punished with a technical foul. He wasn’t winning this argument. Nor would his 38 points be enough to win the game. Tony Parker instead prevailed in a clash of All-Star point guards, scoring 25 points and stretching San Antonio’s lead in the Southwest Division over Paul and the New Orleans Hornets in a 106-93 win Saturday night… Michael Finley made four 3-pointers on his way to 20 points, and Tim Duncan scored 12 points against West in another matchup of All-Stars. Manu Ginobili also had 22 points, including a poster-worthy dunk over David Armstrong that made the home crowd erupt. After all, the emphatic jam isn’t what Spurs fans are used to seeing.
