This game taking place in Shenzhen, China.
The Clippers are now playing their preseason games in Shanghai, China. Charlotte came out firing on all cylinders.
The Clippers’ notable offseason additions like veteran forwards Paul Pierce, Chuck Hayes, and Josh Smith, with center Cole Aldrich, and guard Wesley Johnson will likely also be featured versus Charlotte. The team really could not have played better in this one.
Jeremy Lin, much to the delight of the Chinese crowd, scored 16 points off the bench for Charlotte. Six Hornets finished in double-digit scoring.
Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul suffered a fractured left index finger in practice Saturday, but he is not expected to miss extended time.
Michael Jordan said he thinks that Jeremy Lin will be the Hornets’ biggest acquisition this season.
Cody Zeller has 16 points and 10 rebounds.
Spencer Hawes has 10 points and a game high 13 rebounds.
The game between the Clippers and Hornets, which is the first of a back-to-back between both teams, will be on Sunday, October 11, at 1:30 a.m. EST.
Former Hornet, Lance Stephenson, finished with 7 points on 3-8 shooting.
DID NOT PLAY: Paul’s injury was not considered serious and he was to be re-evaluated before Wednesday’s rematch in Shanghai.
