LOS ANGELES (AP) — Blake Griffin had 20 points and 11 rebounds during three thunderous quarters by the Los Angeles Clippers, who routed the Lakers again 142-94 Thursday night to extend their winning streak to a season-best six games.
Darren Collison had a team-high 24 points while starting at shooting guard for the injured Jamal Crawford. Chris Paul added 13 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, who apparently are trying to make up for decades of humiliation at the hands of the Lakers all in one season; they’ve won the last two meetings by a combined 84 points.
This was the Clippers’ largest victory margin over their longtime tormentors, and their sixth victory in the last seven meetings — including a four-game sweep last season.
The last time the teams met on Jan. 10, the Clips won 123-87.
