Charlotte Bobcats (20-25) at Los Angeles Clippers (17-28), 10:30 p.m.
(Sports Network) - The Charlotte Bobcats aim for a franchise record fifth straight road win tonight when they visit the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center.
The Bobcats improved to 3-0 on a season-long six-game road trip Friday in Oakland when Stephen Jackson scored 31 points, including a three-pointer with 1.9 seconds remaining to force overtime, as Charlotte rallied to beat the Golden State Warriors, 121-113.
D.J. Augustin posted 27 points and 12 assists for the Bobcats, who improved to 8-14 as the visitor on the season. Boris Diaw and Nazr Mohammed both netted 13 points for Charlotte, which overcame a 16-point deficit late in the third quarter.
"[To go] 3-0 on the road trip is a great start," Jackson said.
The Clippers, who are kicking off a three-game homestand tonight, are coming off an 0-2 Texas trip, losing in both Dallas and Houston. The most recent setback came in Space City on Wednesday when Kyle Lowry scored 20 points to go along with eight assists and six rebounds as the Rockets used a late fourth quarter surge to top LA, 96-83,
Randy Foye scored 20 points and Blake Griffin, hampered by a sore elbow, improved on his impressive rookie campaign with a 14-point, 11-rebound effort for the Clippers, who have dropped three of four overall. Baron Davis contributed 14 points in the loss.
"We missed shots and we had too many turnovers," Griffin said.
The Clips, however, have won seven straight on their home floor and will be attempting to win eight consecutive for the first time since March 20-April 16, 1993, when they called the Los Angeles Sports Arena home.
Charlotte has taken five of the past six meetings between the two clubs.
