The Clippers, who have been battling injuries to key players all season, dressed nine players for the game.
Maggette averages 20.9 points while Kaman adds 17.2 points and 13.9 rebounds. Kaman missed a game with a left shin contusion before coming down with the flu.
Los Angeles, which was playing the second a seven-game trip, got more bad news when LeBron James returned to the Cavaliers lineup after missing Thursday's game with a sprained right ankle.
The Clippers started the trip with a 104-83 loss Friday night in Minnesota. They also play the New York Knicks, Boston Celtics, Toronto Raptors, Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks on their longest trip of the season.
Los Angeles has played all season without star Elton Brand (torn left Achilles' tendon) and forward Shaun Livingston (dislocated left knee).
