Paul scores 23, Hornets in 116-101 victory over hawks

NEW ORLEANS (AP)—The Hornets were in a dancing mood.

A franchise record-tying 15 3-pointers and a double-digit victory at home will do that for a team.

Chris Paul had 23 points and 18 assists, and New Orleans won for the fourth time in five games, 116-101 over the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night.

Paul also got an assist of sorts on a crowd-pleasing moment in the fourth quarter, when he nudged rookie Julian Wright off the bench and urged him to dance on the court during a 12-minute delay to replace a broken net.

“Rookie hazing,” Wright said of his gyrations, which were shown on the scoreboard video screen during a “dance cam” segment that normally focuses on fans.

The fans roared at more than Wright’s dance moves. The seldom-used first-round draft choice had his best game so far, scoring a career-high 13 points, grabbing seven rebounds and delighting the crowd with his above-the-rim play, particularly when he soared in for a one-handed offensive rebound and in one motion threw down a roundhouse jam.
