NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Chris Paul had 24 points and 15 assists, and the New Orleans Hornets remained perfect on the young season with a 104-92 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.

David West added 25 points and James Posey scored 15 to go with his trademark clutch late-game defense.

Posey stole the ball from LeBron James and drove in for a breakaway dunk in the fourth quarter, then hit a 3-pointer as the shot clock wound down to put the Hornets up 96-85 inside the final three minutes.

Zydrunas Ilgauskas led Cleveland with 18 points, while James finished with 15.
