T.O . Sinks New Orleans

Toronto took advantage of the absence of shooters Peja Stojakovich and David West and played zone to subdue New Orleans/Oklahoma last night , 94 - 87 . So outgunned was the Hornets , the Raptors were able to rest Chris Bosh and other members of the starting 5 for the game today against the Dallas Mavericks . The 2nd unit starring Joey Graham , Jose Calderon and Andrea Bargnani played very well combining for 43 points . Graham ( 14 pts.,3 ass. ) feels more confortable now playing in the 2nd group . ' Last year , I was put in one place where I played a lot of minutes . This year, we got a well rounded group of guys . You just get in where you fit in ' said the former Oklahoma Univ. Cowboy . Right Joey , less responsibility , same salary !
The expected battle between 2 spitfirish points guards , TJ Ford and the Hornets' Chris Paul was onesided in favor of the NO/Okl. guard . It's Jose Calderon ( 13 pts., 4 ass. ) who was more active - assisting and making plays .TJ was ' silent ' for most part of the game while CP3 was his usual self - fast but under control. It's amazing how Paul has taken over this team despite this being his 2nd season only . ' I just have to be vocal in this team . One has to provide leadership' said Paul one time . Coach Byron Scott and the Hornets' management must insure that Paul gets the needed support . Or else, I see a frustrated Paul divorcing himself from the team 2 years from now . The Hornet Paul will be just like divorcee-to-be and former Beatle Paul !
Paul : Hey there , you want Heather !
