They finished 25 of 47, falling short of the Golden State Warriors' NBA record 27 3-pointers in a game.

Rookie Nickeil Alexander-Walker led New Orleans with 15 points, Brandon Ingram scored 14 points, Derrick Favors had 12 and JJ Redick and Frank Jackson each added 11.

Rookie Zion Williamson, who is on a minutes restriction after missing 13 days of training while tending to a family emergency, had seven points and five rebounds in 14 minutes.

The Clippers set the tone for the 3-point shooting right from the outset.

Patrick Beverley scored the game's first points when he made a 3-pointer and George followed by making three consecutive 3-pointers in a span of 1:06 as L.A. raced to a 12-2 lead.

Leonard scored the Clippers' first two-point basket on a 20-foot jumper before he and Beverley each made a 3-pointer.

L.A. took a 22-8 lead as 18 of its points came on 3-pointers and it rolled to a 37-25 lead at the end of the first quarter.

The Clippers continued the long-range sharp-shooting as six of the nine players who entered the game in the first half made multiple 3-pointers.
