Los Angeles Clippers Team Report – December 13

=== Los Angeles Clippers Team Report – December 13 ===

(Sports Network) – The Los Angeles Clippers visit the struggling Utah Jazz
tonight at the Delta Center.

In 2003-04, the Jazz won three of the four contests with the Clippers.
Overall, Utah has won two straight and five of the last six meetings in this
series. The Clippers have lost three straight and 29 of their last 30 games at
Utah.

The Clippers attempt to halt a two-game losing streak tonight. On Monday,
Gary Payton scored on a driving layup with 35 seconds remaining in double
overtime to break a tie after the Boston Celtics rallied from a 12-point
fourth quarter deficit to post a thrilling 134-127 victory over the Clippers
at the Staples Center.

Corey Maggette had a career-high 38 points for the Clippers, who fell for the
second straight time and have dropped three of their last four. Elton Brand
racked up 24 points and 18 rebounds, while Bobby Simmons came through with 22
points in defeat.

LA is 4-3 on the road this season.
