Byron Scott didn't even need to finish his sentence:

"Last night, that was bull."

On Wednesday, a day after the Hornets' 102-96 loss at Philadelphia, the Hornets' coach remained furious. The previous night, his team played a lethargic first quarter. On Wednesday night at Toronto, Scott was treated to an energetic first quarter, thanks in part to Devin Brown.

Redemption was less than four minutes away.

Following a surprising loss Tuesday night, the Hornets, apparently rejuvenated, led the Toronto Raptors by eight points with 3:30 left Wednesday.

What ensued was a disappointing denouement. The Hornets blew the lead and the game, losing 90-88 to the Raptors at Air Canada Centre.

Fast Takes with GerryV: Double Shot of Pain

GerryV's Fast Takes
By: GerryV
The Hornets were angry at themselves for their play vs the Sixers. Game two of the back-to-back journey saw the Hornets folding in the 4th quarter. I'll spare all the details as you can read about all of them on various sites. All I can tell you is this. If the team is serious about stealing a playoff seeding they need to decide just exactly who they are.

76ers easily defeat listless Hornets

The Hornets strutted into the Wachovia Center as if playing the game was an inconvenience.

The Hornets were on a nice little run, winners of four of their past five games. The Philadelphia 76ers A.I. (After Iverson) have struggled, 7-12 since trading All-Star Allen Iverson to the Denver Nuggets.

"That confidence is a good thing to have," Hornets Coach Byron Scott told his team before playing the 76ers, who came in 11-30. "But it don't mean crap unless you compete and have that fear of losing."

Chris Paul still is not the "Chris Paul of old," Scott said, but the star guard is slowly recovering from his ankle injury, participating in practices and shootarounds.....

Scott predicted Paul's return in the "first or second week of February," and the two haven't talked about Paul's possible participation in All-Star Game festivities, such as the rookie-sophomore game or the skills competition.

With his hands on his hips and looking exhausted, Bobby Jackson politely asked Coach Byron Scott if he had forgotten about their scheduled water break near the end of Monday's practice.

Scott said it was coming but not before he put Jackson and the rest of the Hornets' players through another drill, this one involved running the length of the court with a ball before making a layup.

Although Chris Paul has been shooting and going through conditioning drills, there's no chance he will play in New Orleans on Friday night against the Sacramento Kings.

Hornets Coach Byron Scott said Paul has made progress in his rehabilitation to recover from a severely sprained right ankle, but he remains a few weeks away from returning. Paul, who suffered the injury in a Dec. 26 game against Seattle, has missed 13 consecutive games.

Hornets limit Kobe, beat L.A.

Rasual Butler followed Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant around the perimeter Saturday night, expecting to see a number of shots taken by the eight-time All-Star.

But for long stretches, especially in the first half, Bryant didn't attack as he usually does. Instead of making difficult fadeway jumpers and driving layups, Bryant looked more to set up Brian Cook, Luke Walton, Andrew Bynum and Smush Parker for shots.

Leaving hometown allowed former Spur Brown to grow up

Johnny Ludden - S.A. Express-News
It is no secret around the NBA that the Spurs have spent much of the past month looking for ways to upgrade their perimeter.

It also is no secret they passed on a player in their own town who might have been able to provide some help.

After being released by Golden State just before the start of training camp, former Spurs guard Devin Brown didn't land another job until New Orleans signed him on Dec. 21. He's filled in as the Hornets' starting point guard while Chris Paul has been sidelined and entered Friday's game averaging 11.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists, all career highs.
