LOS ANGELES (AP) — Paul George had 21 points and 10 assists, Kawhi Leonard added 17 points and the Los Angeles Clippers emerged from two inconsistent weeks with a 125-98 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

The Clippers had seven scorers in double figures during just their third win in eight games.

Los Angeles bounced back from blowout losses to New Orleans and Dallas in the previous six days with an overwhelming effort against the Hornets, who lost their third straight.

LaMelo Ball scored 13 points as Charlotte lost its third straight. The Hornets are winless on their five-game road trip against the West’s elite.
