The Los Angeles Clippers are a tough team to figure out. One week, they look like the best squad in Los Angeles – maybe even the entire NBA. The next they’re dropping four straight.
On Monday night, the Clippers fell (at home) to the New Orleans Hornets 105-98. Caron Butler had 33 points (12-of-24 shooting) and Chris Paul had 20 points (nine-of-14 shooting), but ultimately it wasn’t enough. Jamal Crawford had a terrible shooting night (three-of-nine, 10 points), however, Blake Griffin clearly had the worst showing of all. Four points. One-of-nine from the field. Six rebounds. Thirty five minutes. Ugly performance in every way imaginable.
As usual, Greivis Vasquez led the way for New Orleans with 25 points and 10 assists.
