=== Los Angeles Clippers Team Report – January 25 ===

(Sports Network) – The Los Angeles Clippers suffered a 102-97 loss at the
hands of the Seattle SuperSonics on Saturday at Key Arena.

Corey Maggette scored 28 points and grabbed 10 rebounds while Elton Brand
collected 26 points and 16 boards for the Clippers, who had a two-game win
streak halted. Quentin Richardson poured in 22 points in the loss.

A free throw by Richardson capped a 6-0 spurt that pulled the Clippers
to within 86-81 with 4:15 remaining, but Seattle built up a nine-point lead
after a pair of free throws by Ray Allen made it 100-91 with 20 seconds
remaining.

Maggette then hit a three-pointer to bring Los Angeles to within five
again before Allen sank two more free throws. Maggette hit another three-
pointer just before the buzzer to account for the final margin.

The Clippers will be back in action on Monday against the Utah Jazz.
