Even without star player big man Blake Griffin, the Los Angeles Clippers are finding ways to win. The L.A. squad beat the Charlotte Hornets 122-117 on the road on Wednesday (Thursday in Australia) for their fourth straight victory.

Four starters scored double-figures for the Clippers, who played without Griffin. Griffin missed the last three games due to a quad injury and is expected to be out until another week. The Clippers are hopeful the player won’t need surgery this season.

J.J. Reddick led the way for Los Angeles with 26 points going 8 of 14 from the field overall and 5 of 6 from behind the three-point line. Both Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan posted double-doubles of 19 points and 11 assists and 13 points and 13 rebounds, respectively.

Austin Rivers played well off the bench to add 22 points on 7-of-11 shooting with 4 three-pointers. Veterans Paul Pierce and Jamal Crawford added 13 and 11 points, respectively.

Griffin was injured in the Clippers’ 94-84 win against the Los Angeles Lakers on Christmas Day, and without the power forward, the Clippers surprisingly beat the Utah Jazz, Washington Wizards and Hornets in the last three games.

Kemba Walker led the losing side with 29 points and 7 assists, while Frank Kaminsky and Jeremy Lamb both scored well off the bench with 20 and 19 points, respectively. However, defence was the problem for the Hornets, who allowed the visitors to shoot 37 of 71 from the field (52.1 percent shooting) and 15 of 30 from the three-point area.

Charlotte had a two-game winning streak snapped and will try to return to the win column when they face the Toronto Raptors on Friday. Meanwhile, the Clippers will try to extend their current winning streak when they face the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday.
