PLAYER NOTES

--G Chris Paul got out of his shooting slump -- for one quarter. Paul, who had shot just 31 percent (11-for-36) in the last three games, made his first four shots against the Warriors on Tuesday and scored 11 first-quarter points. After that, he went scoreless and missed his last eight shots. He did contribute 10 assists.

--F David West didn't get as involved in the offense as normal once the Hornets started playing the Warriors' fast-paced style. West took just seven shots, eight fewer than his average, and made five as he scored 15 points, four less than his team-leading average. He had a team-high seven rebounds, but that gave him a total of just nine in the last two games after averaging 16 in the two games before that.

--G Marco Belinelli matched David West for the team-high in scoring with 15 points. Belinelli made 5-of-8 shots, including 2-of-4 three-pointers.

--G Marcus Thornton continued his inconsistent play off the bench. After scoring a season-high 24 points against the Bulls on Saturday, he made just 1-of-6 shots against the Warriors and finished with four points in 15 minutes.

--G Jarrett Jack extended his most consistent scoring stretch as a Hornet. He had 11 points, making 5-of-10 field goals. That's the fourth consecutive game in which he has scored at least 10 points. He had not scored in double-figures in consecutive games in the 41 games he played prior to this streak.

--F David Andersen missed all of his field-goal attempts for the second consecutive game. He was 0-for-4 on Tuesday after going 0-for-3 on Saturday.

MEDICAL WATCH

--C Emeka Okafor (strained oblique) has missed the last eight games and likely will be out until after the All-Star break.
