Clippers Vs. Hornets Game Preview

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO Posted Dec 19 2012 2:42AM The Los Angeles Clippers haven't lost since hosting the New Orleans Hornets over three weeks ago.

Beating them this time at Staples Center would match the longest winning streak in franchise history.

Blake Griffin looks for a much better performance this time against the Hornets as the Clippers go for an 11th straight win Wednesday night.

Griffin had the worst game of his career and fouled out of a 105-98 loss to New Orleans (5-19) on Nov. 26. He finished with a career-low four points on 1 of 9 from the floor while grabbing six rebounds with four turnovers.

Griffin had been averaging 21.4 points and 11.8 rebounds while connecting on 54.9 percent from the field over the previous five meetings.

The star forward, however, is one of the reasons the Clippers (18-6) haven't lost since that matchup.

Los Angeles has reeled off 10 wins in a row, one shy of the team record set from Nov. 3-23, 1974, when they were the Buffalo Braves.

The team is averaging 104.6 points during the current streak, with four players scoring over 12.0 per game. Griffin leads the way at 19.8.

Griffin and Jamal Crawford led five players in double figures with 15 points apiece in an 88-76 victory at Detroit on Monday. It was the second time in three games that Los Angeles shot under 45.0 percent and won.

"We didn't shoot very well, and we didn't do a lot of things we wanted to do," coach Vinny Del Negro said. "We just had a lot of guys make plays down the stretch and we get to go home with another win. Early in the season, we probably lose that game, but now we've gotten to the point where we can win ugly."

Another strong performance from Chris Paul against his former team may make things easier on the Clippers. He's averaging 23.5 points and 10.0 assists in four games versus the Hornets since they traded him to the Clippers for three players and a first-round pick last December.

Paul had 20 points, eight assists and four steals against them last month.

While Los Angeles has surged to the top of the Pacific Division since that meeting, New Orleans is in a 1-10 tailspin, including a season-high eight-game slide that has dropped it to bottom of the Western Conference.

The Hornets lost nine in a row from Jan. 11-25.

If the Clippers can get past struggling New Orleans, they'll have a chance to break the record winning streak Friday against Sacramento, the last-place team in the Pacific.

Before that, the Hornets will try to spoil any celebrations, and Ryan Anderson will likely play a key role in that.

The forward leads New Orleans with 19.0 points per game, but he's produced 24.7 over the past three games after scoring 28 off the bench Tuesday.

Anderson had 17 points and eight rebounds against the Clippers on Nov. 26.

Greivis Vasquez had a career high-tying 25 points and 10 assists in that meeting, and has totaled 43 and 22 over the first two of this four-game road trip, which ends in San Antonio on Friday.

The last team to beat us.. We owe them a good serving of "whoop ass". I'd love to see BG posterize Jason Smith, though I think he's injured atm.

Nothing less than a blowout win should be acceptable this team was our last lost and been trying to punk us the last two seasons. This team has to play with a killer edge we need to hit the twitter pages of these players and let them know we want this game to be a flat out beat down.

Yeah we got a lot of stuff going on here. We have a chance to match the franchise record with 11 consecutive wins. We HAVE to exact revenge against this team. Also there WAS some talk from folks out there that Anthony Davis was coming into the league an already better player than Blake Griffin. I'm sure BG's heard the talk so...

I'll take just a win and tieing the all time franchise win streak mark as "revenge" enough. The played the GSW tough last night.

how insane would it be if the 10 game win streak was book-ended by losses to the HORNETS at home?? that would be one of the weirdest anomalies of the season by far.

That wouldn't be farfetched in the least. Teams coming back on road trips don't do very well in their coming home game. GS almost lost last night and Lakers lucked out against the Bobcats.

There is always one bad team that give good teams a hard time. Seems like the Hornets are that team for us. Seems the Magic are that team for the Warriors. This is the game that can go either way for us so we better take care of business.

I agree, the Hornets aren't that bad they just haven't had much continuity this season with Davis coming in and out of the lineup. With Vasquez at the helm facilitating the offense and Anderson as a deep threat (as we saw in the last game) they can definitely pose problems for us.

Remember though, the were like 15-25 from behind the 3 point line in that game, the only way they can contend is if they get out to a lead early, stay hot from the perimeter, win the battle of the boards, and force turnovers. But if Blake shows up at least 75% more than he did last game we'll be kosher.

CP3 and Bledsoe has to control Vasquez and their backup PGs. They killed us last game.

I'm thinking big win but I'll take a win.

I don't care if the other team gets a point for the most part since it usually doesn't matter but he is really important to our team so he has to stay on the court. Confused If he gets suspended it won't be good.
