Hornets End Skid in Big Way

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Carl Landry scored 17 points and the New

Orleans Hornets snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 93-67

victory over the Orlando Magic on Friday night.

Marco Belinelli added 15 points and Jason Smith 14 for New

Orleans, which won for only the fourth time this season against 15

losses. Jarrett Jack added 11 points and nine assists.

Dwight Howard had 28 points and 16 rebounds, but was the only

player in double figures for the Magic, who appeared to be still

reeling from blowing a 27-point lead in a loss to Boston a night

earlier. Starting in with the third quarter against the Celtics,

the Magic have now gone six straight quarters without scoring 20

points in any of them.

Orlando shot only 39 percent (24 of 61).
