With Dwyane Wade resting, James scored those 17 points over the last 4 minutes, 48 seconds.   Bobcats keep losing Greivis Vasquez scored 20 points and the New Orleans Hornets handed the Charlotte Bobcats a franchise-record 17th straight loss, 75-67.

Experts will have to clean and decontaminate the Louisiana Superdome before the stadium's future can be determined. Superdome officials on Friday took their first look at the New Orleans Saints' home, which was wrecked when thousands of people sought refuge there from Hurricane Katrina. Those officials said yesterday that mounds of trash had been removed from the Superdome's concourses but that the interior was still dark, waterlogged and vile-smelling. The New Orleans Arena next door is in better shape, they said.

Here come Jrue Holiday and the New Orleans Pelicans. That might not be a good thing for the 76ers based on the teams' Nov. 16 meeting at the New Orleans Arena. Back then, the Pelicans rolled to a 135-98 victory to hand the Sixers their worst loss of the season. "They did just whatever they wanted to do," power forward Thaddeus Young said after the game. This time, Holiday could have an emotional return in the matchup at 8 p.m. Friday at the Wells Fargo Center. The game will mark his first return to Philadelphia since the Sixers (6-10)

It is over. Finally, finally over. The 76ers defeated the tough Hornets last night, 107-103, before a raucous, sold-out crowd at New Orleans Arena. It ended a series that all through the night seemed destined for a seventh and deciding game. So today and tomorrow, the Sixers can kick back and await the winner of Detroit and Orlando, who will play a seventh game tomorrow afternoon at the Palace of Auburn Hills. They are on to the second round. This game belonged to the resurgent Hornets, who got monster efforts from so many players.

New Orleans power forward P.J. Brown is a stand-up guy who will be the first to concede that his play hasn't been satisfactory in the first two games of the Hornets' Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with the 76ers. Trailing by two games to none, the Hornets are looking to get back in the best-of-seven series when it resumes tonight at the New Orleans Arena. It is the first-ever NBA playoff game in New Orleans. For the Hornets to avoid thinking too soon about their off-season golf plans, the 6-foot-11, 239-pound Brown will have to emerge as a force.

Chris Paul chose an opportune time for his first triple-double of the season. Paul had 27 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds, and the New Orleans Hornets held on for a 93-88 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Lakers last night to even their first-round playoff series at 2-2. Wearing a black wrap on his left hand and a small bandage over his right eye, Paul scored 14 of New Orleans' 24 points in the fourth quarter. The All-Star guard then capped his brilliant performance by running down the clock and setting up Jarrett Jack's short jumper, which made it 90-86 with 9.3 seconds left.

NEW ORLEANS - Jrue Holiday wears a WWJD (What Would Jesus Do) bracelet all the time. However, 76ers fans want to know What Will Jrue Do to lift the Sixers to the next level. On Wednesday, they got a glimpse of what the precocious point guard can do when he is in domination mode, which is where he was when he packed in 14 of his game-high 23 points in the fourth quarter of the Sixers' 101-93 victory over the Hornets in front of 12,387 at New Orleans Arena. "Jrue was magnificent coming down the stretch," Sixers coach Doug Collins said.

NEW ORLEANS - This game was over shortly after it started. The New Orleans Pelicans' superior talent and depth were obvious in the early stages. And while the 76ers played with their trademark grit, they could do nothing to stop the domination. In the end, the Pelicans coasted to a 135-98 victory Saturday night at the New Orleans Arena. "They did just whatever they wanted to do tonight," said Sixers power forward Thaddeus Young, whose squad (5-6) lost for the sixth time in its last eight games.

NEW ORLEANS - With the stunning development of 76ers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams, it's easy to forget the player he replaced. Yet Jrue Holiday had the type of game Monday and has had the kind of season in his first year with the New Orleans Pelicans that shows why he remains among the bright young players in the NBA. Holiday totaled 31 points, 13 assists, seven rebounds, and just two turnovers in just under 38 minutes during the...

NEW ORLEANS - Doug Collins never promised this first portion of the journey would be pretty to watch, only that it had to happen. As the Sixers wait to learn if their savior center will even do a decent deep knee bend this season, the schedule keeps insisting they must play these games with a mismatched roster of virtual strangers. "We're getting to know each other," Collins said Wednesday night. "We're having these moments together for the first time. It can be painful, but necessary.

NEW ORLEANS - The team had long boarded the bus and headed back to the hotel after Wednesday morning's shootaround at the New Orleans Arena, but 76ers rookies Maalik Wayns and Arnett Moultrie were still on the court, dripping with sweat and hoisting shot after shot after shot. Under the guidance of assistant coach Aaron McKie, the rookies stayed behind for close to an hour, listening intently as McKie showed some techniques and lectured them so well on the game that his college coach, John Chaney, would have been beaming.

Of all the parties, receptions, get-togethers and events among the glitterati at the NBA's annual all-star weekend extravaganza, culminating in tonight's All-Star Game, the most important meeting may have been a low-key one at Hornets' owner George Shinn's home on Wednesday. That's when Shinn, NBA commissioner David Stern, league and basketball operations president Joel Litvin, deputy commissioner Adam Silver, Hornets president Hugh Weber and Shinn's son, Chad, the Hornets' executive of the board, got together to discuss the state of the team.
