Okafor, Paul, and the hornets Beat James and the heat

Emeka Okafor helped Chris Paul get the best of his buddy, LeBron James.

Okafor had a season-high 26 points and 13 rebounds, Paul had 13 points and 19 assists, and the Hornets remained unbeaten with a 96-93 victory over the Miami Heat last night in New Orleans.

David West added 15 points, including free throws with 7.2 seconds to go after Chris Bosh’s three pulled Miami to 94-93. Dwyane Wade gave up a 3-point attempt to tie and passed to Eddie House, whose shot rimmed out in the final seconds.
Miami did not take its first lead until free throws by James (20 points, 10 assists) made it 90-89 with 59.8 seconds left, but the Hornets responded with Marco Belinelli’s free throws, and then Trevor Ariza’s three.

Wade led all scorers with 28 points to go with 10 rebounds. He scored 12 points in the fourth quarter, and went 13 of 13 from the foul line.

Damn, Homie. Can you feel the heat!?!?
