NEW ORLEANS - The New Orleans Hornets snapped a four-game winning streak with a 103-91 blowout loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.
The Grizzlies clinched a playoff berth for the second straight season as they shot 51 percent overall and won for the 10th time in 13 games.
Rookie Jerome Dyson led the Hornets with a career-high 24 points, while Carl Landry finished with 16, hitting all four of his shots from the field and going 8 of 9 from the line.
Marco Belinelli matched Landry's 16 points, and Jason Smith finished with 12.
The Hornets shouldn't mind the losses though as they are in line for one of the top picks in the NBA Lottery Draft.
