Clippers Vs Hornets Game Preview

By JEFF BARTL Posted Nov 26 2012 12:30AM

Chris Paul wasn't pleased with how the Los Angeles Clippers played during their recent road trip.

Returning home to face his struggling former team may be what Los Angeles needs to break out of its slump.

The Clippers look to end a three-game losing streak while dealing the New Orleans Hornets an eighth straight defeat Monday night.

After knocking off San Antonio for its sixth consecutive win to start its trip, Los Angeles dropped the final three games, including Saturday's 104-93 loss at Atlanta.

Blake Griffin totaled 22 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists while Paul finished with 19 points and seven assists for the Clippers (8-5), who lost three straight just once all of last season.

"It's a terrible road trip for us, especially with all of them being winnable games," Paul said. "I think what we've learned from it is that it's not as easy as it looks."

Los Angeles' vaunted bench also was held in check over the last two games, scoring 24 points in Friday's loss to Brooklyn and 34 on Saturday while shooting a combined 36.5 percent over those contests.

The Clippers' average of 40.0 points from their reserves ranks fourth in the league.

Jamal Crawford, the team's leading scorer and sixth man, scored 12 points Saturday and is shooting 35.8 percent over his last four games. Paul said the Clippers can't always rely on their reserves to pick up the slack.

"That's unusual for us because usually our first team is the one that gets jumped on and it's our bench that brings us back into the game," Paul told the team's official website. "It's a long season. The bench can't bail us out every night."

Paul, who spent his first six seasons with the Hornets, did his own damage in three games against his former team last season, averaging 24.7 points and 10.7 assists as the Clippers won the last two meetings at home.

He scored 33 points, dished out 13 assists and had eight steals in Los Angeles' 107-98 win in the last matchup April 22.

New Orleans' rebuilding effort has gotten tougher with the absences of former Clipper Eric Gordon - who came over in the Paul trade - and No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis, who has missed four consecutive games with a stress reaction in his left ankle and six overall due to injury.

Davis could possibly be out until January, which doesn't bode well for the Hornets (3-9), whose skid reached seven after a 102-84 loss Sunday at Denver.

Brian Roberts scored a team-high 17 points off the bench while Ryan Anderson added 16.

Rookie Austin Rivers, shooting just 29.6 percent, finished 2 for 10 from the field and scored five points.

"We are having problems right now," said Greivis Vasquez, who scored six points after netting a career-high 25 in Friday's loss to Phoenix. "We are just embarrassed."

New Orleans, which concludes its four-game road trip Monday, shot 38.8 percent and committed 14 turnovers, including six by Vasquez.

"The NBA is a cruel league," coach Monty Williams said. "They try to embarrass you every night and that's what you saw (Sunday)."

The Paul-led Hornets won 15 of the previous 16 matchups before dealing the point guard to the Clippers prior to last season.

^ overconfidence is bad. cant call their players d-leaguers. they do have some talent outside of gordon and davis. ryan anderson, greivis vasquez, robin lopez, jason smith, austin rivers, al farouq aminu ( who is playing well). they are dangerous because they are playing without pressure. all the pressure is on us. do i think we will beat them, sure. but i hope the clippers dont take them lightly

If Brian Roberts scores over 3 points tomarrow vs Cp3 and Bledsoe you know the clippers have lost.

All nba players have talent but our team is better than this team. Only way we lose is if we don't play hard. After losing 3 in a row, that shouldn't be an issue.

Also, Hornets played last night and got spanked. Davis and Gordon are out too.

No excuses!

I, personally, am not taking this game lightly at all. The only other time in the season we faced a "bad" team (the Cavs) at home, we blew it. I'd like to think the team is past turning in another performance like that one, but I have to see them do it first to start giving them the benefit of the doubt.

We better win this one by over 10 points. There are really no excuses for not winning tonight with Gordon and Davis out.

even though we're not even half way through the season, if we lose tonight it's time to hit the panic button because if we can't win against the beat up hornets then i don't know what we're going to do to survive in the playoffs.. thats if we make it roll

This is a matchup that the Clipper players can win, and I hope that Vinny remember the opposing team's disrespect for the win they got last year crying to the reporters about flopping. Here's a chance to make a statement.

If we lose this game, I'll end up looking like a fool, but that's a risk I'm willing to take. I guarantee a win for the Clipps tonights. Actually in dedication to the old guy who just came out of retirement: I guaran-sheed it, haha.

Dumb and dumber are back East somewhere. DJ looks like he left his moves in Brooklyn and BG looks so lethargic. Both of these guys are who are killing us right now.

This is why I called you guys out for stupidly acting like these lesser teams would be guaranteed wins. Do you realize how pathetic it is to be down even 3 points AT HOME to a Hornets team missing their two franchise cornerstones? I have no sympathy for these low IQ players.

Not sure that's true. CP3 has better opportunities to lob it to his center than his PF. I just think CP3 wants to make BG another West.

And we still suck at running the fast break. We did make some 3s, but it was the same predictable offense on the break...settling for the 3.

I said on another forum that I think CP3 is trying to turn Blake into David West 2.0 which is a terrible idea. My negative feelings towards CP3 continue to grow. Dude is wide open from 18 feet where he's MONEY yet REFUSES to shoot!!!
