Knicks knock off Hornets, end 6-game skidPosted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports: Chris Paul got mixed up with Nate Robinson. James Posey threw the ball at a referee. The New Orleans Hornets showed plenty of emotion—just not until they’d shown too little while falling behind the New York Knicks. Al Harrington scored 23 points, David Lee added 18 points and 11 rebounds, and the Knicks snapped a six-game losing streak Friday night with a 103-93 victory over the frustrated Hornets, who were hit with two technicals and an ejection in the fourth quarter. “I just think if we would have come out with that type of passion in the third quarter, then we would have won the game,” said Hornets coach Byron Scott, adding it was a “terrible” loss for a team in the middle of the Western Conference playoff race.
