Paul, Hornets dominate Wizards in Berlin

Oct 14, 2008 - 8:17 PM BERLIN (Ticker) -- Chris Paul continued to show the world how good he is.

Paul scored nine points and dished out 11 assists to lead the New Orleans Hornets to a 96-80 preseason victory over the Washington Wizards on Tuesday at the O2 World Arena.

The 23-year-old Paul, who won a gold medal with Team USA during the Beijing Olympics in August, had a breakout season in 2007-08. He averaged 21.1 points and a league-high 11.6 assists last season, finishing second to Kobe Bryant for the league MVP.

Paul's skills were on display in this one. The 6-foot guard finished 3-of-7 from the field and made two steals over 24 minutes.

Paul and the other four starters all scored before the Wizards managed to get on the board, as the Hornets jumped out to an early 18-0 lead. The game was never in doubt from that point.

Rasual Butler poured in 20 points and fellow reserve James Posey added 17 for New Orleans, which held a 61-24 advantage at the break.

DerMarr Johnson scored 19 points and DeShawn Stevenson collected 15 for Washington, which committed 18 turnovers.
