Clippers look to build on positive homestand vs. SuperSonics

Jan 28, 2007 - 2:35 PM LA Clippers (21-22) at Seattle (17-26) 10:00 pm EST

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- As a result of sloppy play, the Los Angeles Clippers had their season-high winning streak snapped.

After dropping the finale of a five-game homestand, the Clippers will look to bounce back when they face the undermanned Seattle SuperSonics on Sunday.

After reeling off four wins in a row at home, Los Angeles committed 26 turnovers and suffered a 101-87 setback against Minnesota at the Staples Center. Elton Brand had 25 points and 12 rebounds for the Clippers, who allowed superstar Kevin Garnett to dominate during a decisive fourth-quarter run.

With the loss, the Clippers (21-22) and Timberwolves now have identical records in the race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Without star forward Rashard Lewis, the SuperSonics continue to call on their role players to step up. Rookie Mickael Gelabale, who collected a season-high 17 points and eight rebounds, delivered a pair of key plays in the final 30 seconds to help Seattle rally for a 102-100 victory over Minnesota on Friday.

Ray Allen scored 36 points to pace Seattle, which has won four of their last five games.

The Sonics won the first meeting between the teams, 95-85, on November 22 on the road. But the Clippers have won their last two trips to Seattle.
