SAN ANTONIO (AP) -New Orleans Hornets center Tyson Chandler and forward David West were in the starting lineup Thursday night for Game 6 of their series against the San Antonio Spurs.
Chandler bruised his left foot in the Hornets' Game 5 victory, and West has been having back pain.
``I think these guys are fine and they'll be ready to play,'' Hornets coach Byron Scott said before the game.
West said at the Hornets' morning shootaround that his back was feeling better.
The Hornets had a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference semifinals and were trying to eliminate the defending champion Spurs.
