Some lightning quick thoughts: Chris Paul is far and away the best point guard on the planet, DX needs to protect the ball better, Tyson Chandler held his own against the super-hyped Andrew Bynum, James Posey suffocated the life out of Kobe Bryant (no way you D up that dagger three any better), Hornets would've won if Mo-Pete and/or Peja had bothered showing up. Most teams in this League pack it up, trailing by 21 in the 4th quarter. The Hornets are not one of those teams. Maybe that dampens the loss for you, maybe it doesn't, but it's a huge positive nonetheless.
Lee should have a full recap up in the morning.
