Magic can't handle Paul, Hornets

BY foxsports • February 19, 2009

Chris Paul gave the New Orleans Hornets reason to believe they could dominate an elite team without 7-foot-1 center Tyson Chandler. Then the Hornets found out, much to their delight, that Chandler would be rejoining them after all.

Paul had 36 points and 10 assists, and New Orleans handed the Orlando Magic their worst loss of the season, 117-85 on Wednesday night. As the Hornets entered the locker room following the victory, general manager Jeff Bower informed them that Oklahoma City had rescinded Tuesday's trade that would have sent Chandler to the Thunder for Chris Wilcox, Joe Smith and the rights to Devon Hardin.
