LOS ANGELES–Before the Los Angeles Clippers extended their season-high winning streak to six games with a tough 109-104 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night at Staples Center, coach Doc Rivers had bad news about injured center DeAndre Jordan.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 21 points, Dwight Howard had another double-double and the Charlotte Hornets used a record-setting first half to beat the Washington Wizards 133-109 in coach Steve Clifford's return.
Rochelle Benton and her son, Landon are the only parent-child player combo within Charlotte's Rollin' Hornets wheelchair basketball organization. Landon has been active on various youth teams since age 6, while Rochelle joined the co-ed adult team three years ago and recently helped launch the Rollin' Hornets' first all-women's team. Both were born with tibial dysplasia, a congenital birth defect that led to both of them having their legs amputated above the knee when they were about a year and a half old.
