The Los Angeles Clippers (17-6) will wrap up a four-game road trip on Monday in Detroit as they take on the Pistons. Vinny Del Negro's squad has been red hot of late, winning 10 consecutive games after a brief four-game skid to close out the month of November. Tipoff at The Palace of Auburn Hills is slated for 4:30 p.m. PT and the game will be televised on Prime Ticket.
Wednesday night, the Clippers will return to the friendly confines of the Staples Center and play host to the New Orleans Hornets (5-18). New Orleans has lost seven consecutive games and has posted a dismal 2-8 record on the road this season. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. PT and the game will be televised on Prime Ticket.
The Lakers (11-14) rebounded from a four-game losing streak of their own by winning the final two games of a four-game road trip last week. Kobe Bryant and company will try to win their third consecutive game when they play host to the struggling Charlotte Bobcats (7-16) on Tuesday night at the Staples Center. Charlotte is mired in a brutal 11-game losing streak and hasn't notched a win since Nov. 24. Tipoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. PT and the game will be televised on Time Warner SportsNet.
