NEW ORLEANS -

Greivis Vasquez capped a 25-point, nine-assist performance by hitting a running floater off the backboard with 12 seconds left, and the New Orleans Hornets beat the Detroit Pistons 100-95 on Friday night to snap a two-game skid.
 
   Eric Gordon added 21 points and Ryan Anderson 19 points and 13 rebounds for the Hornets, who were short-handed in the front court with starting forward Anthony Davis sitting out his second straight game because of a sprained left shoulder.
 
   New Orleans native Greg Monroe had 27 points and 10 rebounds for Detroit, while Brandon Knight added 22 points, including a 3-pointer that tied the score at 91.
 
   Vasquez's final basket made it 98-95, and Rodney Stuckey missed a 3-point attempt that could have tied it in the final seconds.
