NBA: New Orleans 115, Dallas 99

NEW ORLEANS, March 22 (UPI) -- Chris Paul netted all 11 of his points in the fourth quarter Monday, leading the New Orleans Hornets to a 115-99 win over Dallas.

Paul paced the Hornets on a night when he returned from a 25-game absence due to surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. He played nearly 21 minutes and was a key factor as the Hornets broke a three-game losing streak.
