March 2, 2009 6:37:38 PM PST
David West was big again for New Orleans, scoring 30 points with 10 rebounds to lead the Hornets to their fifth straight win, 98-91 over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night. West was chosen the Western Conference player of the week only hours earlier on the strength of his 28.5 points and 10.5 rebounds in four Hornets' victories. The new week brought more of the same stellar production. West scored the Hornets' first 12 points as they raced to a 13-point lead. New Orleans is on a season-high winning streak.

Chris Paul bounced back from a two-point first half to finish with 16 points and 12 assists. His 3-pointer with 70 seconds left made it 95-89 and the Sixers could not recover.
