NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Eric Gordon scored 27 points, Carl Landry had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Hornets dealt a blow to Houston’s playoff hopes with a 105-99 overtime victory Thursday night, the Rockets’ sixth straight loss.
Goran Dragic scored 23 points and Chase Budinger tied a season-high with 22 points for Houston (32-31), which dropped one game behind Utah (33-30) for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with three games left.
The Hornets have won seven of 10 games when losing would have enhanced their chances of winning the NBA’s draft lottery.
