Howard's 23 points lead Hornets past Thunder

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The Charlotte Hornets finally won a road game. In a tough spot, too.

Dwight Howard scored 23 points to help the Charlotte Hornets beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 116-103 on Monday night. It was Charlotte's first victory on the road since Oct. 30 at Memphis.

"There are two ways you can go when you have a slow start," Howard said. "You can either look down upon yourself and say, `I can't do it, it's too hard,' or you can look in the mirror and say `I want to get out of this.' That's how we are feeling. Together we can do something good."
