Jazz Upend Playoff-Bound Hornets
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- C.J. Miles and Devin Harris each scored 18 points, and the Utah Jazz defeated the New Orleans Hornets 90-78 on Monday night.

Paul Millsap scored 16 points and Gordon Hayward added 14 to help the Jazz win for only the second time in 12 games.

Chris Paul, who went scoreless for the first time in his career in a loss at Memphis a night earlier, had 15 points. Marco Belinelli, who had 13 points, was the only other starter in double figures for New Orleans, which shot 37.8 percent (28 of 74) while dropping its second straight.

The Hornets (46-35), who are already playoff-bound, now hold the eighth seed in the Western Conference, a half game behind Memphis (46-34) and 1{ games behind Portland (46-33).
