The New Orleans Hornets blew a 17-point halftime lead on the back of their now-customary third quarter sluggishness Saturday night, losing at home to the Indiana Pacers, 81-75.

The Hornets, coming off last night’s 99-94 loss to San Antonio, came out strong to start the game, stripping the Pacers at every opportunity and giving a rare show of power inside. New Orleans shot 42.1 percent in the first quarter, including 10 points in the paint, and converted 7 Indiana turnovers for 7 points.

Hornets Head Coach Monty Williams doesn’t think it feels strange to return to the Arena after losing on the road the night before.

Saints Looking to Win Out, Playoffs or Not

Saints guard Jahri Evans acknowledges a measure of regret that it took so long — probably too long — for New Orleans to resemble the playoff contender it had been the previous three seasons.

Evans says the Saints' 41-0 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday offered a glimpse of how New Orleans should have played earlier this season.

Still, Evans and his teammates say winning out matters whether they make the playoffs or not.

Tulane: Devon Walker to Spend Holidays at Home

Tulane says injured safety Devon Walker cannot get around on his own but will be home for the holidays.

A statement released Monday by Tulane says "Devon is not yet mobile" but works daily to get better.

Walker says he's happy to be going home to see family and friends. He says he knows his fight is just beginning, and asks people to pray for his recovery.

Walker's spine was fractured on a tackle Sept. 8 at Tulsa.

He is at an undisclosed rehabilitation facility. New Orleans Saints players and coaches visited him there on Nov. 29, his 22nd birthday.
