    Can it get any worse?  The New Orleans Hornets suffered the worst home-loss in NBA history at the hands of the Denver Nuggets on Monday night.  The Nuggets won the game 121-63 to take a convincing 3-1 lead in the best of 7 series.  The Nuggets took a 36-15 1st quarter lead and never let up.  The Nuggets outscored the Hornets in each quarter, holding the Hornets to just 11 and 13 points, respectively in the 3rd and 4th quarters.  Talk about packing it in and getting ready for the off-season.  What a joke of a performance by the the Hornets, especially during the playoffs.

    The Nuggets had 7 players with double-digit scoring.  Carmelo Anthony led the way with 26 points points, while Chauncey Billups scored 17 points and dished out 8 assists.  The Nuggets shot 56.7% from the floor, including 10 of 20 from 3-point range.

    On the other side of the ball, the Hornets shot just 31.5% from the field, including 2 of 15 from 3-point range.  Only 3 players scored in double digits for the Hornets – David West (14 points); Peja Stojakovic (10 points) and James Posey (12 points).  The Hornets franchise player – Chris Paul – played one of the worst games of his career – just 4 points on 2 of 7 shooting, 2 rebounds, 6 assists and 6 turnovers.

    Commissioner David Stern and the NBA should just cancel the rest of the series – why even bother playing Game 5 in Denver to “officially” end the series.  This series was over 12 minutes after the Hornets took the court on Monday night.  The Hornets should be ashamed of themselves.
