The Hornets (20-11) saw their bid to compile the franchise's lengthiest winning streak since March 2003 end on New Year's Eve, when they dropped a nail-biter to the Raptors. New Orleans has another encouraging streak intact, though, having won three consecutive road games. New Orleans will try to match their longest road win streak of 2007-08 when they face the Los Angeles Clippers at 9:30 p.m.

The Clippers (10-19) surprised many when they started the season 4-0, but have dropped 19 of 25 games since then. Los Angeles is also just 4-13 since Nov. 24, when New Orleans posted a 98-89 victory in its last visit to the Staples Center.
