Millsap, Jazz Beat Hornets

By  | 

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Paul Millsap had 27 points and 14 rebounds to extend his NBA-leading double-double streak to 19 games and the Utah Jazz took advantage of the weary New Orleans Hornets in a 116-90 victory Wednesday night.

Millsap also had five assists to go with his latest double-double, the most by a Utah player since John Stockton had 18 in a row in 1992.

The Jazz held New Orleans to two field goals in the second quarter as the fatigue set in from the Hornets' 116-105 win over the Lakers the night before in Los Angeles.

Chris Paul had 26 points and seven assists for the Hornets, but got little help from his teammates as Utah controlled everything inside and outrebounded New Orleans 55-26.

Mehmet Okur added 20 points for Utah, and Andrei Kirilenko had 13 points and eight rebounds.
