Clippers Beat Hornets To Snap Two Losing Streaks

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Eric Gordon scored 27 points and hit two game-sealing free throws with 4.7 seconds left, and the Los Angeles Clippers snapped a lengthy losing streak to the New Orleans Hornets with a 99-95 victory at Staples Center. Blake Griffin added 24 points and 13 rebounds for the Clippers, who ended a 14-game skid to the Hornets. The last Los Angeles win against New Orleans came on January 8, 2007, when the Hornets were displaced to Oklahoma City due to Hurricane Katrina.

Al-Farouq Aminu contributed with 16 points, while DeAndre Jordan had 12 for Los Angeles, which prevailed despite shooting 17-of-34 from the free throw line. The Clippers snapped a nine-game losing streak to improve to 2-13. David West scored 30 points and hauled in 10 rebounds for the Hornets, who lost for just the second time in 13 games this season. Chris Paul had 14 points and six assists, and Marco Belinelli posted 14 points as well. The Clippers next game is on Thanksgiving night, against the Sacramento Kings at Staples Center.
