The New Orleans Hornets took down the Boston Celtics 90-78 to win their second straight game, and pull off their sixth victory in seven contests.

Boston struggled in all facets of the came, showing little to no fight and subsequently, the six game winning streak it was riding came to an end.

New Orleans took down Rajon Rondo and company without Eric Gordon behind monster performances from Al Farouq Aminu, Robin Lopez and Anthony Davis.

Most importantly, rookie Austin Rivers officially won bragging rights over his dad Do Rivers (kidding.)

That about does it for me here. It wasn't always pretty but the Hornets got the job done.

Which is more than we can say for the Celtics.
