Exclamation April 28: Playoffs Round 1: Lakers at Hornets, Game 6

The AP reports: Two transcendent playoff performances by Chris Paul made the Hornets’ first-round series with Los Angeles far more interesting than the defending champion Lakers would have preferred. The question now is whether the Hornets’ four-time All-Star can summon another big game back in the Big Easy on Thursday night. At the very least, Paul welcomes the pressure that comes with a game in which a loss ends the season for his team. “This is all or nothing for us,” Paul said. “I can’t wait.” When Paul has been sensational—with his 33-point, 14 assist performance in Game 1 and his triple-double in Game 4—the Hornets have pulled out a pair of hard fought victories. In the series’ other three games, when Paul has still been exceptional, but short of dominant, the Lakers have won—including twice by double digits. Now ahead 3-2 in the series, Los Angeles needs only one more win to dispatch pesky New Orleans. If the Lakers own key statistical categories as thoroughly as they did in their 106-90 Game 5 triumph on Tuesday night, the series isn’t likely to make it back to the West Coast for Game 7.

Thursday Night!
