 NEW YORK (AP) -Chris Paul scored 27 points and had a hand in three clutch baskets in the final minutes, leading the New Orleans Hornets to a 100-88 victory over the New York Knicks on Monday night.
Tyson Chandler added 15 points and 18 rebounds for the Hornets, who sent the Knicks (18-42) to their seventh straight losing season. They did it by controlling the final minutes behind Paul, who finished with eight assists, five rebounds and three steals.
The Hornets pulled within 1 1/2 games of Southwest Division leader San Antonio, which is percentage points ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers for the best record in the Western Conference. New Orleans is third.
Jamal Crawford scored 20 points and Eddy Curry ended a month-long slump with 19 for the Knicks, who played without starting forward Zach Randolph (bruised right foot).
