Clippers vs. Bobcats recap: Clips keep rolling, win 8th straight vs. Bobcats

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

The Clippers tied a franchise record on Wednesday night by extending their longest winning streak in two decades to eight games.

The Los Angeles Clippers tied a franchise-record eight-game winning streak as they defeated the Charlotte Bobcats on the road, 100-94, at Time Warner Cable Arena.

Not since the 1991-92 season has L.A. had a winning streak that long, and they continued to answer the call after their last road trip didn't fare well. Wednesday's victory was their second road win in as many tries during the current trip.

Chris Paul led L.A. with 19 points, 10 assists and five rebounds. Matt Barnes added 19 points of his own off the bench, 11 of which came in the fourth quarter as the Clippers continued to display their balanced scoring and depth.

The Bobcats got a solid effort from forward-center Byron Mullens, who led the Bobcats with 19 points and eight rebounds. Kemba Walker added 17 points and six assists for Charlotte.

But it was Barnes who was the star of the game for the Clippers -- he came through when the team needed him most. He gave the team the spark they needed after getting into Charlotte on the second night of a back-to-back at 4 a.m. local time. Los Angeles moved to 16-6 on the year, while the Bobcats fell to 7-14.

Next up for the Clippers in the third leg of a four-game road trip is a contest against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.
