Capsule Preview: Sonics at Hornets

When: 5 p.m., tonight 

Where: Ford Center, Oklahoma City

TV/Radio: FSN/950 (KJR AM)

Records: Seattle 19-29; New Orleans 24-23

Three points: Seattle, which has dipped a season-low 10 games below .500, hopes to salvage a victory on this four-game trip, in which it has been blown out in three straight games. The Sonics have not had a winning record all season. Should that trend continue, then it would be a first since the 1985-86 campaign when they finished 31-51. ...

Seattle lost 105-99 to the Hornets on Nov. 26 at KeyArena. In that game, rookie Chris Paul had 17 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds.

Injuries: Sonics — F Vladimir Radmanovic (right quadriceps strain) is questionable. F Danny Fortson (sore left knee), F Vitaly Potapenko (lower back strain) and G Rick Brunson (plantar fasciitis left foot) are out.
