Paul, Hornets look to remain unbeaten vs. Warriors

Nov 7, 2006 - 2:26 PM Golden State (2-2) at New Orleans (3-0) 8:00 pm EST

OKLAHOMA CITY (Ticker) - The Golden State Warriors are coming off a victory over the defending Western Conference champions. It will not get any easier in their next contest.

The Warriors will take on the unbeaten New Orleans Hornets in Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

Baron Davis scored 26 points and Jason Richardson added 22 as Golden State sent the Dallas Mavericks to their season-opening third straight loss, 107-104, in coach Don Nelson's emotional return to Dallas.

Troy Murphy collected 20 points, six rebounds and four assists for the Warriors, who won at Dallas for the fourth straight time - the first team in five years to accomplish that feat.

Hornets star point guard Chris Paul, the floor leader for Team USA at the World Championships this summer, has led a young New Orleans team to an impressive start. After three games, the 21-year-old Paul is second in the NBA with an average of 10.7 assists.

On Sunday, Paul tied his career high with 16 assists and added 12 points, and David West scored 22 points as the Hornets posted a 96-90 victory over the Houston Rockets in their home opener.

It was only the fourth game played in New Orleans Arena since Hurricane Katrina devastated the city last year.

New Orleans won two of the three meetings between the squads last season.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
