Chris Paul tallies 29-16-10 on 65% shooting

No matter that they couldn’t contain Chris Paul and David West, the Oklahoma City Thunder showed some signs of improvement under interim coach Scott Brooks following P.J. Carlesimo’s firing.

West scored a season-high 33 points, and Paul had 29 points, 16 assists and 10 rebounds in New Orleans’ 109-97 victory Saturday night. The Hornets beat the Thunder for the second straight night to push their losing streak to 11.
