Clippers look to end skid at home vs. Hornets


The Clippers (8-5) will be back home tonight at Staples to take on the New Orleans Hornets. Game time is 7:30pm. The Hornets (3-9) are in the midst of a 7 game losing streak, and will be playing without Anthony Davis for the 4th consecutive game as he nurses an ankle injury.

There is still a tinge of bad blood between the two teams after last season’s flagrant foul by Jason Smith on Blake Griffin, resulting in Smith’s suspension for 2 games.

The Clippers have lost 3 in a row, all on the road after starting off promisingly with a victory over the Spurs and a tough loss in overtime at Oklahoma City.

The game can be seen on Prime Ticket; heard on Radio: 980, 1330.
