Clippers Off To One Of Worst Starts In Team History

The Los Angeles Clippers look to snap their eight-game losing streak tonight as they return home to face the Knicks. Tonight's game is the start of a three-game homestand for the Clippers, who are looking to rebound after a 1-12 start to their season. It is the worst start to a season by the Clippers in 12 years, and third-worst start since moving to Los Angeles in 1984:
