NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 13 (UPI) --
The New Orleans Hornets used a combined 36 points from David West
and Marco Belinelli Saturday to notch a 107-87 win over Portland.
The pair got 18 points each, while Emeka Okafor scored 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Chris Paul, Peja Stojakovic and Willie Green added 11 each for the Hornets, who are 5-0 at home.
The loss was the third in the Trail Blazers' last four games. Portland languished offensively, with Nicolas Batum (16 points), Andre Miller (14) and Wesley Matthews (also 14) providing what little firepower Portland had.
