A large part of the credit might go to the visiting New York Knicks, but the Clippers provided plenty of reasons of their own during a 92-81 loss before 8,067 that set a season-record for fewest points scored.

The result is that the Clippers have lost two straight and are slowly losing a nice chance to pick up ground during a lengthy January homestand.
All the more frustrating, the Knicks won with ease as starting forward Charles Oakley watched the game from the bench in a pinstripe pin·stripe also pin stripe

Unlike last week in Phoenix, when the Clippers capitalized on Charles Barkley's absence, the Knicks never skipped a beat and appeared oblivious to Oakley's injury.
The Knicks (23-13) also rebounded from a two-game losing streak of their own, including a frustrating loss to Milwaukee at Madison Square Garden

"We haven't been playing well of late," Patrick Ewing said. "That was great tonight. This road trip is very important for us."
Ewing had his usual 22 points and 10 rebounds but was offset by Clippers center Brian Williams, who had 19 points and six rebounds.
The difference was New York's defense. Or the Clippers' lack of offense.
Part of the reason may have been New York's methodical offense, often featuring power forward Anthony Mason bringing the ball upcourt, seemed to put the Clippers in a daze.
"They slow you down and play ugly," Clippers guard Brent Barry said.
The Clippers (15-22) scored only 35 points in the first half, and were fortunate to be trailing by only five points.
The troubles were personified by the long evening forward Rodney Rogers had. He scored only two points but had four fouls and five turnovers.
About the only negative from the Knicks' view was that it wasn't quite the return envisioned by former Clippers guard Gary Grant, now a reserve for the New York. He went 0 for 3 from the field and 0 for 2 from the free-throw line in the first half.
Another ex-Clipper, Charles Smith, did significantly better with 20 points and 8 rebounds in the game.
