NEW ORLEANS — Chris Paul picked an opportune time for his first triple-double of the season.
Paul had 27 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds, and the New Orleans Hornets held on for a 93-88 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night to even their first-round playoff series at 2-2.
“It’s huge for us,” said Paul, who turned in the performance after spending Easter with family. “We wanted to bring a win to our fans in New Orleans. Happy we got this win on Easter. Having my family here makes it more special.”
