With the 100% start gone, Los Angeles Clippers will be looking to return back to winning ways when they host Charlotte Hornets in NBA 2019-20 NBA regular season at Staples Center.
Clippers had an off-day while playing Phoenix Suns away at Talking Stick Resort Arena. Devin Booker dropped a game-high 30 points to go with 8 assists and 6 rebounds as he helped down Kawhi Leonard and Co. 130-122 for his team's first win of the season.
Kawhi Leonard had a good game, as was the case with Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell, but Clippers' defense cracked under Suns' backcourt players' slick passing the movement.
Clippers return to their base after playing two games on the road.
Charlotte Hornets meanwhile stayed in Los Angeles following their 120-101 defeat at the hands of Los Angeles Lakers.
What competition it is? NBA Regular Season
The match will be played between the Los Angeles Clippers and Charlotte Hornets at Staples Center, in Los Angeles, California. The arena has a capacity of 21,000.

Captain options and Dream11 tips:
Kawhi Leonard should be your frontrunner for the captain option, while Lou Williams is in good form as well.
We advise going with Clippers' bench players, especially JaMychal Green and Maurice Harkless. The duo has made a good start to the new season.
From Hornets, Cody Zeller, Terry Rozier, and PJ Washington are worth considering, while the players such as Miles Bridges and Dwayne Bacon offer relatively cheap but good options.
