Golden State's Chris Wright was called for goaltending on Marco Belinelli's layup with 0.7 seconds remaining, and the New Orleans Hornets beat the Warriors 83-81 Tuesday night. Greivis Vazquez blocked Charles Jenkins' layup to start a fast break in the final seconds. He pushed the ball ahead to a wide-open Belinelli, whose layup touched the backboard and was on its way down before Wright hustled over for the illegal swat. In an odd scene, many Warriors fans actually were cheering for the Hornets. Golden State has to finish in the bottom seven of the league after the draft lottery to keep its protected first-round pick, acquired by Utah in a previous trade. The Warriors are eighth-worst in the league entering Thursday night's season finale at home against San Antonio.
