The Charlotte Bobcats came close, but they couldn’t break through against the LA Clippers, and Kemba Walker and Co. fell for the ninth straight time.
Walker did his part; He was the only Bobcat with a positive +/-, and Byron Mullens had an unusually efficient night on the way to 19 points.
Still, LA came out on top 100-94.
Blake Griffin and Chris Paul had 19 points a piece, and Griffin added five rebounds, three assists and two blocks to that stat line, while Paul completed a double-double by adding 10 assists.
Sharing was in the air for Lob City Wednesday night. 26 of the Clippers’ 37 made shots came off assists. Just 18 of Charlotte’s 35 buckets were the result of an assist.
The Clippers also beat Charlotte in the rebounding battle, 48-44, and blocked 11 shots on the night.
Eric Bledsoe chipped in 13 points for LA off the bench, and Matt Barnes poured in 19.
Bismack Biyombo had a solid game in the starting lineup with 10 points and nine rebounds, and Gerald Henderson played an efficient game off the bench making four of his nine shots for 12 points, four rebounds and two assists.
Ramon Sessions and Ben Gordon did not have the best of games, though. They scored a combined 19 points on six-of-21 shooting.
Charlotte will look to avoid letting their losing streak stretch into the double digit range Thursday night against Atlanta
