Chauncey Billups got therapy Wednesday for what the Clippers said is peroneal tendonitis in his left foot. Billups said there is no timetable for his return to playing again. "I'm not really practicing on the court yet," Billups said. "When I get to do that, then we can assess that. " Billups said the team doctors and Clippers trainer Jasen Powell have recommended rest for right now. "I'm just trying to let the inflammation go down," Billups said. Billups, who has played in three games this season, missed his eighth consecutive game with the injury.

  This game was about more than the Clippers extending their 10-game winning streak and making franchise history in the process. This game also was about the Clippers looking for some revenge against a New Orleans Hornets team that had defeated L.A. earlier this season and did a little too much celebrating for the Clippers' liking. The Clippers were able to do both, blasting the Hornets, 93-77, pushing their winning streak to 11 games and seeing Chris Paul reach an NBA milestone Wednesday night at Staples center.

NEW ORLEANS - As the Lakers disembarked from their charter flight early Wednesday morning, Kobe Bryant remained in his seat. He wasn't exactly lingering to warmly greet his teammates as they filed past. Bryant was quietly stewing, though his mood would significantly brighten by the end of the day. The Lakers guard became the youngest player in NBA history to reach 30,000 points while helping his team log its own milestone during a 103-87 victory over the New Orleans Hornets.

In danger of losing a third straight game, the Lakers (8-10) visit the New Orleans Hornets (5-11) Wednesday night. After a miserable fourth quarter against the Orlando Magic at Staples Center, with the Lakers yielding 40 points, the team fell apart in the final frame on Tuesday in Houston against the Rockets. The Hornets have a poor record but have won two of their last four including solid victories over the Clippers on the road and at home against the Milwaukee Bucks. Rookies Anthony Davis (ankle)

NEW ORLEANS -- One night after being intentionally bumped, grabbed and nudged, Dwight Howard fought back. Hard. The Lakers center put a quick end to the New Orleans Hornets' Hack-a-Howard strategy late in the third quarter, making two consecutive free throws after being deliberately fouled. The Hornets didn't touch Howard again Wednesday night at New Orleans Arena, though he played less than four minutes in the fourth quarter with the Lakers leading during a 103-87 win. Howard probably hasn't seen the last of opponents' unwanted advances.

Kobe Bryant scored his 30,000th career point tonight while playing the Hornets in New Orleans. With 1:16 left in the second quarter, Bryant drove into the middle of the paint and pulled up for a floating jumper to score his 13th and 14th points of the game, giving him 30,001 for his career. Bryant was originally drafted by the Hornets in 1996 but was traded on draft day to the Lakers for Vlade Divac. Despite playing in his 17th year at the age of 34, Bryant is leading the league in scoring at 27.9 points a game, heading into Wednesday's battle against the Hornets.
