MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Marco Belinelli made a career-high six 3-pointers and scored a season-high 22 points to lead the short-handed New Orleans Hornets to a 92-89 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.
Chris Kaman added 18 points and 10 rebounds for New Orleans. Gusvtavo Ayon had 12 points and 12 rebounds, as New Orleans (6-23) won its second straight game for the first time starting the season 2-0.
Ersan Ilyasova led the Bucks with a season-high 23 points, two off his career high, but the Bucks dropped their third straight and sixth of eight to fall further out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture, with the surging New York Knicks now in the No. 8 spot.
