Sunday, January 30th the LA Clippers play the Charlotte Hornets for the second and final time this season. LA won the initial meeting on November 7th with a score of 120-106.
Both teams last played on Friday with the Clippers losing 114-121 to the Heat while the Hornets defeated the Lakers 117-114.
Last season, the squads played twice LA winning both, and have a current seven-game win streak versus Charlotte dating back to December 17th, 2017. The Clippers hold the all-time record having bested the Hornets in 36 of their 61 matches.
Despite playing without their top talents the Clippers have been in some dog fights recently and pulled off a few amazing double-digit comebacks.
The most notable occurred against the Wizards as LA erased a 35 point deficit then got a bogus call on Luke Kennard’s 3-pointer allowing him to shoot the free throw to win the game.
The basketball gods (or the refs) had their backs in that circumstance but the Clippers remain a middling team which isn’t necessarily a terrible statement given who isn’t playing.
In the loss Friday to the Heat, six Clippers scored in double-figures with reserves Luke Kennard (23 points, six rebounds, three assists) and Eric Bledsoe (19 points, four rebounds, six assists, three steals) leading the way.
The top starter was Amir Coffey who scored 15 points while Reggie Jackson (13), Nic Batum (12), and Justise Winslow (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
Marcus Morris (personal) was upgraded to probable while Nic Batum (back) and Jason Preston (foot) are questionable for Sunday. Paul George (elbow) remains out with no stated return date as does Kawhi Leonard rehabbing from his torn ACL.
The Hornets have been on the upswing winning 12 of their last 17 contests plus two in a row after losing consecutive games to the Hawks and Raptors.
Although they beat the Lakers they certainly left the game up for grabs by not employing much defense. Considering both Anthony Davis and LeBron James were out it sure felt like they flirted with the final outcome but held on for the victory.
Five players scored in double-digits with four of them scoring 20 or more points. Miles Bridges led the way with 26 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals, and a block.
LaMelo Ball and Terry Rozier each scored 20 points along with seven and six rebounds respectively and combined for five assists.
Ish Smith broke out of a shooting slump to score 22 while PJ Washington delivered 12 points.
Kelly Oubre Jr. (ankle) is questionable, Jalen McDaniels (ankle) is downgraded to out while Gordon Hayward (quarantine) is listed as out indefinitely.

Free LA Clippers vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
These clubs both love the second half and each has been highly successful at coming back from first-half deficits.
While the Hornets seem allergic to defense it would behoove them to make an effort on that side of the hardwood given LA’s lack of primary scoring talents.
