New Orleans: 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.
