ATLANTA — The Clippers will try to snap a 15-game losing streak tonight when they play the Atlanta Hawks at the Omni.
Team captain Cedric Maxwell showed up with a shaved head at practice Sunday, and said he isn't going to grow his hair back until the Clippers (4-30) win 10 games.
"I like that attitude," Clipper Coach Don Chaney said of Maxwell. "We might get some wins right away because his wife doesn't like his head shaved that clean."
The woeful Clippers are getting close to the National Basketball Assn. record for most consecutive defeats. The Philadelphia 76ers lost 20 consecutive games in 1973. The Clipper record for most consecutive losses is 19, which was set in 1982, when the team was still playing in San Diego.
