Clippers Rally to Hand Nets 8th Straight Road Loss, 123-120

Austin Rivers scored 27 points and Tobias Harris added 26 as the Los Angeles Clippers rallied for a 123-120 victory over Brooklyn, handing the Nets their ninth consecutive road loss.

Rivers hit a go-head 3-pointer with 33.5 seconds left, Lou Williams completed his 21 points with a 15-foot jumper with 8.9 seconds left and rookie Sindarius Thornwell blocked Joe Harris' 3-point attempt before the buzzer to seal the victory.

Caris LeVert led the Nets with 27 points, hitting 5 of 7 3-pointers, and DeMarre Carroll had 20 points.

The Nets have lost 10 of their last 11 overall.

The Clippers opened with a 10-0 run and led almost the entire game, but could never really pull away. Their biggest lead was 15 points, but the Nets kept picking away until a pair of 3s gave them a 97-96 lead with 9:41 to play.

The Nets went up 118-110 before the Clippers rallied.
