    PLAYA VISTA — In character as the NBA’s fourth-best 3-point shooting team, the Clippers made 50 percent of their 3-point attempts in Monday’s 121-117 loss to New Orleans.
    Out of character for the team averaging fewer than 25 3-point attempts per game (the second-fewest in the NBA), the Clippers took a season-high 36 attempts from behind the arc, letting it fly from deep as if they were Boston Celtics, who average the third-most 3-point attempts in the league.
