Ellis Scores 29, Warriors Rally To Defeat Hornets
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Monta Ellis scored 29 points and the Golden State Warriors rallied to beat the Hornets 110-103 Wednesday night.
The Warriors, who faded badly in the second half of losses to Miami and Orlando before traveling to New Orleans, flipped the script this time.
Trailing 82-72 after three quarters, they went on a 27-7 run in the first seven minutes of the fourth to go ahead 99-89, then hit their free throws down the stretch to seal the victory after the Hornets got within 2 points.
Stephen Curry had 21 points for Golden State, and Dorell Wright and David Lee added 13 each.
Chris Paul led New Orleans with 24 points, one off his season high, but was scoreless for the first 11 minutes of the fourth quarter. He also had 13 assists.
