New Orleans, La. - The Hornets appeared to be the victims of a last second Damian Lillard three point dagger for the second time this season but Ryan Anderson responded to hand New Orleans their first win in four games.
It appeared the Hornets' fate was sealed when Greivis Vasquez missed a go-ahead jumper with twenty seconds left but Anthony Davis chased down a rebound as he fell out of bounds to keep the play alive. One quick pass later and Ryan Anderson was delivering a smooth three pointer to give the Hornets a two point lead.
Just a few seconds later in the game, however, Lillard had his own three point shot to put the 'Blazers up by two with ten seconds left. Vasquez scrambled around the back court before finding Anderson down low who barreled his way to a basket and a foul. The converted free throw iced the game, 98-96.
Anderson delivered throughout the game, totaling 20 points and 13 rebounds. Davis notched his second straight double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Brian Roberts got his first career start and played a career high 43 minutes in the absence of Austin Rivers and Eric Gordon.
The Hornets hit the road this week, taking on Brooklyn Tuesday, the Wizards Friday, and Minnesota Sunday.
