All season the Los Angeles Clippers (24-16) have depended on their four players to be effective and put points on the board for their team. Last night was no different. Led by Tobias Harris, Danilo Gallinari,  Montrezl Harrell, and Lou Williams Los Angeles was able to pull away from the Hornets for their third consecutive win.

They combined for 93 of the teams 128 points. 

 "Once we picked our pressure up, we got more focused on that end and that was big, We got really good efforts from everybody," Harris said who had 23 points for the game. "We're pretty close to getting back."

Lou Williams had game-highs in points and assist scoring 27 points and dishing out 10 assists. Danilo Gallinari had 20 points and made 4 of his 7 three point attempts. 

Montrezl Harrell had a double-double himself scoring 23 points to go along with his game-high 11 rebounds.

He said after the game about staying efficient while on the floor, "I wait until the defense takes something away and I counter."

The most overlooked part of the game was the job Avery Bradley and Patrick Beverly did on Hornets guard Kemba Walker. Walker was held to just 13 points, well below his season average (25.1 ppg) he led the league in fourth-quarter points at 8.6, but Los Angeles did not allow him to score in the final quarter. 

 "We trapped all night. He warrants that," Rivers said. "It was just try to coral him."

The Charlotte Hornets (19-21) last win at Staples Center against the Clippers was on Feb. 28, 2009.

Reserve Malik Monk who led Charlotte in scoring, scored 19 of his 24 points in the fourth. He said after the game about what the Clippers were able to do to him and his team.

"They made very few mistakes. They rarely turned the ball over, We were rushing and out of our own rhythm. They forced us out of our rhythm and they outworked us." 

They have fell to 5-13 on the road with their fourth loss in six games.

Jeremy Lamb had 16, and Marvin Williams chipped in with 14. They will travel to Portland to face the Blazers on Friday 1/11.
