NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 22 (UPI) -- Chris Paul had a triple-double -- 29 points, 10 rebounds and 16 assists -- Saturday night to lead the New Orleans Hornets past Oklahoma City 109-97.

Oklahoma City was playing its first game under Scott Brooks, who was named interim coach Saturday after the Thunder fired P.J. Carlesimo. The team made the change after opening the season with just one win in 13 games.

David West finished with 33 points and eight rebounds for the Hornets, who completed a home-and-home sweep of the Thunder.

Kevin Durant has 30 points and Jeff Green scored 17 for the Thunder.
