Clippers sting the Hornets 99-95

As i mentioned this earlier, before the start of the NBA season, I have decided to become a full fledged Clippers fan, and cheer them on.  Yes, the team is a pathetic 2-13, but they are fun to watch.  Tonight could be a possible turning point to a very young team.

The Clippers knocked off the red-hot New Orleans Hornets at Staples Center, 99-95.  The Hornets came in with an 11-1, but the Clippers walked away with a hard fought win.

The Clippers currently don't start anyone over the age of 22, yet made some key throws down the stretch to pull away from the Hornets.

The Clips dynamic duo of Eric Gordon and Blake Griffin came up huge.  Griffin followed up his 44 point, 15 rebound performance with 24 points, 13 boards and 2 blocks.  Eric Gordon put up 27 points on 9-18 shooting.  He made two free throws with 4 seconds left to put the Clippers up by 4.

Al-Forouq Aminu added 16 points, and Deandre Jordan added 12 points and 8 boards.

The Clippers meet the Kings on Thanksgiving night on ESPN, check out Blake Griffin in action!
