Chris Paul and David West gave the Los Angeles Clippers another reminder of what they lacked most: a formidable one-two punch.
Paul recorded his sixth career triple-double, getting 17 assists, 14 points and 10 rebounds for the New Orleans Hornets, in a 99-87 victory on Monday night. West scored 27 points, including a pair of jumpers that diffused a rally by the Clippers midway through the fourth quarter.
“We really wanted to come out aggressive,” West said. “I think we’re starting to get a better rhythm and we’re playing well. I’m a little more relaxed, playing looser. I’m not as worried about making mistakes.”
