The LA Clippers lost to the New York Knicks 107-85, giving them their 9th straight loss.

What does winning feel like? It feels like November 1st was ages ago and yet, it’s only been 20 days since the LA Clippers last won. Last night, the team lost their 9th straight and 10th of their last 11, falling to the New York Knicks 107-85.

According to Brad Turner of the LA Times, Patrick Beverley agrees.

"“This … feels like 100 losses,” Beverley said. “Straight up. This … is weak."

Beverley, who returned last night after missing 5 games with a knee injury, has been with the team for most of the losses. Hopefully his motivation can carry over to the rest of the team. Here are the game’s highlights, if you can call it that:

The loss was more of the same. There was little to no effort from the starting unit, a ton of isolation ball and a lack of defense. Blake Griffin, who has been increasingly chirping at the refs during this streak, finally got a technical for complaining and also managed to foul out. He did manage to score 21 points, but that wasn’t nearly

Austin Rivers had a pathetic shooting night, going 1-9 from the floor. Only 4 Clippers’ players finished with a positive plus/minus: Willie Reed, Jawun Evans, Jamil Wilson and Beverley. The whole team looked out of sorts and nothing seems to have changed.

The team has to win at some point, right? Fans are calling for coaching changes and trades, but with no announcement as of this writing, we’ll just have to hope that everything gets corrected and the team can come together in Atlanta on Wednesday.
