At the beginning of a season the Clippers sensed was filled with promise, they set the lofty goal of not losing consecutive games.
They were unable to fulfill that pledge.
After back-to-back defeats to the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers, the Clippers will look to end the losing streak Tuesday night against the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center.
“As a team we talked about not losing two games in a row and we’ve done that,” Chris Paul said before the Clippers’ shoot-around at Basketball City in New York. “We better not lose three. I think we’ve got to come out here and make sure it doesn’t happen.”
