Clippers Lose To Bucks 102-78, Continue Downward Spiral

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Carlos Delfino hit seven three-pointers on his way to a 26-point, nine-rebound effort, and the Bucks pulled away from the Clippers early in the fourth quarter to earn a 102-78 victory. Brandon Jennings poured in 20 points and John Salmons added 16 points and 12 assists for Milwaukee, which snapped a three-game skid by outscoring the Clippers by 18 points over the final 12 minutes. Blake Griffin totaled 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Baron Davis went for 22 points with six assists as Los Angeles fell to 1-6 to start its 11-game road trip.

Jon Brockman's late tip-in gave the hosts a 71-65 lead heading to the final stanza, and the Bucks -- namely Delfino -- quickly used the three-point ball to blow the game open. DeAndre Jordan opened the fourth quarter scoring with a dunk, but the Clippers went the next seven minutes without hitting a field goal. Delfino hit three-pointers on back-to-back possessions to start a 14-1 run that put the Bucks on top, 85-68, with eight minutes to play, and it remained a double-digit affair from there.

The Clippers committed 20 turnovers to Milwaukee's 11. Jennings had half of Milwaukee's 22 points in the first quarter, and the Bucks never trailed in the second frame en route to a 47-45 lead at halftime.

Clippers Vs. Bucks: Corey Maggette Day-To-Day (Back) For Milwaukee

The Los Angeles Clippers are in need of a win, any win, as they head to Milwaukee tonight to face the Backs at Bradley Center. The Clippers are just 1-5 in the first six games of their eight-game road trip, and are looking to head into the All-Star break on a positive note. The Bucks have lost seven of their last eight games, and are five games in the loss column behind Indiana for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Here are tonight's probable starting lineups:

Clippers (20-34)

Point Guard: Baron Davis

Shooting Guard: Randy Foye

Small Forward: Ryan Gomes

Power Forward: Blake Griffin

Center: DeAndre Jordan

Bucks (20-33)

Point Guard: Brandon Jennings

Shooting Guard: John Salmons

Small Forward: Corey Maggette

Power Forward: Ersan Ilyasova

Center: Andrew Bogut

Corey Maggette, who left Saturday's game early against Indiana with lower back pain, is listed as day-to-day. Forward Larry Sanders is also day-to-day with back spasms, much to the chagrin of David Duchovny.

Tonight's 5 p.m. PST will be televised on Prime Ticket. Ralph Lawler and Michael Smith will be on the call.

Road Weary Clippers Travel To Milwaukee To Face Bucks

Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers are in dire need of a win Monday night as they continue their road trip from hell in Milwaukee against Andrew Bogut and the Bucks. The Clippers have proven on this trip that any road win will be a challenge, as they have lost successive games against teams that have lost 26 straight and 16 of 17 games, respectively. That the Bucks have lost only seven of their last eight games make them a relative superpower in terms of Clipper opponents.

Blake Griffin had 21 points and 15 rebounds in Sunday's loss to Toronto, and on the first six games of the road trip Griffin is averaging 20.7 points and 12.2 rebounds per game. Both numbers are below his season averages, and Griffin is shooting just 45.6% from the field on the road trip. Baron Davis is averaging 20.5 points and 9.5 assists per contest on the road trip, and is shooting 44.1% from the field, including 40.0% from three-point range.

The Bucks' game is defense, as they are fourth in the league in points allowed (93.0 per game) and fifth in defensive efficiency (102.9 points per 100 possessions). Milwaukee is last in both points per game (91.2) and offensive efficiency (100.9 points per 100 possessions). They have a remarkable scoring balance when they do score, with four different players averaging over 13 points per game. Brandon Jennings leads the Bucks with 15.6 points per contest.

Former Clipper Corey Maggette is listed as day-to-day with lower back pain. He left Milwaukee's last game, on Saturday night against Indiana, after six minutes. The Clippers are just 4-20 on the road this season, while the Bucks are 12-12 at home. The Clippers beat the Bucks 105-98 at Staples Center on January 31. Los Angeles has just one win in seven games since then.
