WASHINGTON — Chris Paul scored eight of his 26 points in the final three minutes to lead the New Orleans Hornets to their sixth-straight win Sunday, 115-110 over a Washington Wizards team that has turned its game up a notch since the suspension of Gilbert Arenas.
Peja Stojakovic scored 20 points, and Paul added 14 assists for the Hornets, who have won three straight away from home to improve their road record to 5-13 after an abysmal start.
Antawn Jamison tied his season-high with 32 points, and Randy Foye had 23 starting in place of Arenas to set a season-high for the second straight game.

At Toronto, Rajon Rondo had 22 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds for his first triple-double of the season, and Rasheed Wallace scored a season-high 29 points in Boston's seventh straight win over the Raptors.
