The Hornets struggled on both sides of the court in front of a sparse home crowd at the New Orleans Arena on Wednesday, losing to the Utah Jazz, 96-84.

The Denver Nuggets beat the New Orleans Hornets Sunday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver. The Hornets, who took the lead early in the first quarter, tried to stay with the Nuggets but began lagging by halftime.

By the end of the third, the Bees were behind by 18, and they were never able to catch up.

"Not any good thing to take from a game like this,” said Hornets Head Coach Monty Williams after the game. “The NBA is a cruel league. They try to embarrass you every night, and that's what you saw tonight.”

The San Francisco 49ers dealt the New Orleans Saints a serious blow to their playoff hopes, defeating them 31-21 Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Despite an improved defensive effort, the Saints were unable to overcome a couple of big plays and offensive miscues.

The Saints’ defense yielded a season-low 375 yards to the 49ers offense but couldn’t overcome a pair of crucial interceptions by Drew Brees.

Brees was 26 of 41 for 267 yards and three touchdowns, but he threw two interceptions which were returned for touchdowns.

“We've got to get it together. It's hurting us. It's four losses in a row. You don't want to take that. You don't want to get used to losing,” said Hornet’s starting guard Greivis Vasquez.
