CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Greivis Vasquez scored 20 points and the New Orleans Hornets handed the Charlotte Bobcats a franchise-record 17th straight loss, 75-67 on Monday night.
The Hornets, playing without leading scorers Eric Gordon and Chris Kaman, won despite shooting just 34 percent from the floor in the second-lowest scoring NBA game this season. Gordon was given the night off to rest, but no reason was given before the game as to why Kaman was held out of action.
Carl Landry added 14 points and 12 rebounds off the bench for New Orleans.
Gerald Henderson led Charlotte with 27 points.
The loss assured the Bobcats (7-53) of the worst record in the league, giving them a 25 percent chance of landing the No. 1 pick in the NBA lottery on May 30.
