Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- The Charlotte Hornets were energized and determined but the New Jersey Nets looked like a tired bunch.

Eddie Jones scored 10 of his 26 points in the decisive third quarter as the Hornets took advantage of the weary Nets and snapped a three-game losing streak, cruising to a 119-103 victory.

The Nets, who were playing their fourth game in five nights and arrived in town early this morning, tried to keep up with the Hornets but appeared a step behind throughout, allowing numerous dunks, layups and uncontested baskets.

"Well, we didn't have it tonight," Nets coach Don Casey said. We were supposed to get here at 11:30 last night and didn't get here until 3:00 a.m. that's the NBA, though. You have to fight through the fatigue and play tough."

Leading 73-65 midway at the 7:34 mark, the Hornets exploded for a 13-3 run, capped by a 3-pointer by Jones that provided an 86-68 advantage with 3:26 remaining.

Jones handed out seven assists and former Net Derrick Coleman -- fined $7,500 by the NBA earlier in the day -- added 22 points for Charlotte, which is sixth in the Eastern Conference, three games behind Philadelphia and Toronto.

"We really shot the ball well tonight," Charlotte coach Paul Silas said. "We pushed it up the floor and executed extremely well. Our guys were a little angry because we haven't been playing up to par. We needed a breakthrough game.

"If you look at where we are compared to other teams we can make a real push," Silas added. "Toronto lost tonight and Philadelphia is heading out west, so we have to take care of business."

Stephon Marbury scored 23 points for the Nets, who fell to 9-25 on the road this season. New Jersey dropped three games behind Orlando for the final playoff spot in the East.

"Offensively, we really couldn't get into anything because our defense wouldn't allow us," Marbury said. "We can't dwell on this game. This one's history. All we can do is regroup. The Hornets played extremely well."

The Hornets, bouyed by 80 percent (16-of-20) shooting in the first quarter, jumped out to a 37-27 lead. David Wesley scored 10 of his 22 points in the session, going 5-of-5 from the floor, while Jones and Coleman added eight.

"The biggest key was 37 assists on 46 baskets," Wesley said. "That means everybody was getting touches and involved. When we play together, we're a good team. We've been hot and cold. It's a good feeling after a game like this."

The Nets hung close in the second quarter, with Marbury cutting the deficit to 57-53 on a drive with 1:53 left. But Charlotte closed the period with an 8-3 run for a 65-56 lead at halftime.

New Jersey's fatigue was evident in the third quarter and Charlotte took full advantage. Jones and Wesley hit layups and Coleman and Mason added thunderous dunks which put the Hornets on top, 81-65, with 5:46 remaining.

Jones sank two free throws at the 2:23 mark, stretching the lead to 91-70, and the Hornets took a 96-79 lead to the final session. With the outcome in little doubt, Charlotte turned to its bench to carry them the rest of the way.

Hornets rookie Eddie Robinson had 11 points and seven rebounds, scored seven points in the fourth quarter. First-year teammate Baron Davis dished six assists and scored four points as the lead grew to as many as 22 points midway through the period.

Mason had a fine all-around game with 17 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Hornets, who shot 56 percent (46-0f-82) from the floor and 6-of-10 from behind the arc.

"We got a good win over a good team," Mason said. "The biggest difference was we played with energy on both ends of the court. If we play like this, we can make an outstanding run."

Keith Van Horn and foul-plagued Kendall Gill added 17 points apiece for New Jersey, which shot 47 percent (40-of-86) but was outrebounded, 39-38.

"They caught us on a good night to catch us," Gill said. "They played well. We just came out flat and they came out up. They were too hot. Tonight, we just were not on the top of our game."
