The Clippers avenged their embarrassing loss from last week thanks to strong performances from their stars. Chris Paul managed 25 points, 10 assists and four steals, and Blake Griffin put up 20 points, seven boards, and five assists. Nick Young added 17 points off the bench. The Clippers build up a double-digit halftime lead and led by 19 after three quarters before cruising the rest of the way. Los Angeles shot 50% from the field and nailed eight three pointers, four coming via Young.

Not one of the five Hornets starters managed double-digit scoring, with Jarrett Jack scoring nine points and Gustavo Ayon putting up eight points. Al-Farouq Aminu put up 15 points on seven of eight shooting, Carl Landry had 14 points and 10 boards, and Chris Johnson added 10 points.
