This game features the reeling Hornets traveling to Los Angeles to face the Clippers.
The Hornets are on a 5 game losing streak,, while the Clippers have lost two in a row to the Western Conference heavyweights.
The Clipper won the first game of the season series, and 5 in a row overall.
The Hornets were struggling heading into the All-Star break, and continued that losing against Detroit.
Playing in his first game after an All-Star game appearance, Kemba Walker put up huge numbers in the loss to the Pistons.
Walker scored 34 points on 11-19 shooting, and also grabbed 7 rebounds and dished out 6 assists. Walker’s high level of play hasn’t translated into wins for the Hornets.
If he isn’t able to turn things around for the team they will be looking at a shocking lottery pick in June.
Nicolas Batum is one of the more underrated SF’s in the NBA. Averaging 15 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists per game he is a very versatile player who can take over stretches of a game if given the opportunity.
Batum had a modest game against the Pistons, scoring 18 points and grabbing 6 rebounds in the contest. He faces a Clippers team that has been weak at SF for a number of years, and should be able to put up big numbers.
Second year big man Frank Kaminsky has started the last 4 games for the Hornets and is becoming a big time contributor for the team. He scored 17 points against the Pistons, but facing off against Andre Drummond, one of the best rebounders in the NBA, and only grabbed 1 rebound.
A matchup against another great rebounder and defender in DeAndre Jordan should mean another low rebound total for Kaminsky.
Los Angeles Clippers
Chris Paul returned from a 14 game absence to face the Spurs, but it wasn’t enough to pull out the victory. He scored 17 points, had 6 rebounds, and 5 assists against the Spurs backcourt.
He didn’t play in the first meeting a few weeks ago, so this matchup against Kemba Walker will be a good one. Look for Paul to put up a double double against the Hornets.
Although he was the discussion of multiple trade rumors heading to the trade deadline, Blake Griffin remained in a Clippers uniform and put up big numbers against Lamarcus Aldridge and the Spurs on Thursday night.
Griffin scored 29 points and had 9 rebounds, while also shooting an amazing 11-11 from the charity stripe. Griffin shouldn’t have any problems scoring against Frank Kaminsky and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, so a 30 point game isn’t out of the question.
DeAndre Jordan is one of the best defensive players in the NBA, and has a shot at the Defensive Player of the Year award as the season hits its final stretch. His ability to alter any offense will be valuable once the playoffs start.
Tonight against Frank Kaminsky? Jordan should put in a dominant game on both ends of the floor.
