Hornets 100, Cavaliers 81

Posted: Thursday, April 10, 2003

NEW ORLEANS - Jamal Mashburn scored 28 points as the Hornets defeated maintained their tenuous hold on the fifth playoff seed in the Eastern Conference. The Hornets needed the victory to stay ahead of the Boston Celtics, who won in Washington.

New Orleans, which lost its previous game Saturday at league-worst Cleveland with starters Baron Davis (left knee), P.J. Brown (right ankle) and David Wesley (left foot) out, were once again without Brown and Davis, who are day-to-day.

Wesley, returning from a nine-game absence, scored the first points of the game on his first shot as the Hornets never trailed. They led by as much as 30 near the end of the third quarter. Wesley finished with 17 points.

Reserve Jumaine Jones scored 21 to lead Cleveland, which has lost seven of eight games. JDHS grad Carlos Boozer started and played 24 minutes. He scored 10 points and grabbed six rebounds in the game.
