Warriors Vs. Hornets Review

D WizzleSenior Analyst IOctober 30, 2008

David West had 24 points, Tyson Chandler had 16 rebounds, and Chris Paul had 11 assists and also hit the game-winning layup with about 19 seconds left in the fourth quarter.

Corey Maggette had 27 points and Stephen Jackson had 26 for the Warriors. 

Jackson played the full 48 minutes and never took a break. What was Don Nelson thinking?  He was not apparently.

Nelson also did not play Brandan Wright, Marco Belinelli, Marcus Williams, or Anthony Randolph.  Questionable moves by Nelson not to play these youngsters.

Warriors had a double-digit lead in the second quarter but the Hornets were never out of it.  Fans had a feeling the Hornets were never out of the game and would come back and win in the second half and that is exactly what they did.

The Warriors did most of their damage when  Paul was out of the game. 

Warriors rookie DeMarcus Nelson played well and had six points.

The most impressive player on the Warriors was Kelenna Azuibuike. He had 17 points in 21 minutes of action. 

Hilton Armstrong had a monster dunk in the second quarter for the Hornets.

The Warriors had a chance to take the lead in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter but Jackson turned the ball over while trying to make an inbound pass to Maggette.

James Posey is a great addition to the Hornets team. He plays tough annoying defense and can hit the open 3. 

Ronny Turiaf endeared himself to Warrior fans by blocking four shots and playing good defense. 

Hornets play the Suns tonight and the Warriors play against the Raptors in Toronto on Friday.
