Clippers Win 3rd Straight, Defeat Bobcats
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Blake Griffin had 17 points and 15 rebounds and the Los Angeles Clippers had more offensive options than Charlotte in a 92-87 victory over the Bobcats on Monday night that matched teams missing their leading scorers.
With Eric Gordon sidelined again with more wrist problems, the Clippers got 17 points from Mo Williams and 16 points and 10 rebounds off the bench from Chris Kaman in their third straight victory.
Charlotte fell to 1-5 since trading Gerald Wallace and lost their second straight since Stephen Jackson was sidelined with a strained hamstring.
Boris Diaw scored 15 of his 19 points in the first half for the Bobcats, who have dropped a season-high five
