New Orleans, La. - Anthony Davis picked up where he left off before the All-Star Break with an impressive double-double, but the Hornets fell short against the Bulls, 96-87.

Eric Gordon led the team in scoring with 20 points, one of five Hornets in double digits.  Despite the spread out scoring, the team's Achilles heel on the night was three point shooting, a lowly 4-for-17 from beyond the arc.

The Bulls were led by Center Joakim Noah, who had 15 points and 17 assists.  Luol Deng and Carlos Boozer were the only other Chicago players in double digits with 20 and 17 points, respectively.

The Hornets hit the road for a Wednesday night game in Cleveland, a team that had four players in Friday's Rising Stars Challenge.
