The New Orleans Hornets won on the road for the first time in almost two months. And the Phoenix Suns lost at home – again. Anthony Davis scored 20 points, Eric Gordon and Ryan Andersonadded 17 apiece and the Hornets handed the Suns their franchise-record seventh consecutive home loss, 95-92 on Sunday night.
Markieff Morris scored 18 points for the Suns, losers of a season-worst nine straight overall and 15 of their last 17. Luis Scola added 17 and Jared Dudley had 15.
The Suns, down by 16 with nine minutes to play, cut it to 85-82 on Goran Dragic’s two free throws with 3:03 left. But Anderson’s rebound basket and two free throws by Davis boosted it to 89-82 and the Hornets held on from there.
