LOS ANGELES (AP) — J.J. Redick scored 20 points, igniting a 13-0 run with a jumper to open the third quarter, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat New York 99-78 on Wednesday night, sending the Knicks to a year-ending ninth consecutive loss.
DeAndre Jordan added 14 points and 12 rebounds for Los Angeles, and Blake Griffin had 13 points, seven rebounds and tied his career high with 11 assists. Jordan and Griffin scored four points apiece in the second-half spurt that stretched the Clippers’ lead from 10 points to 23.
Griffin set up Jordan’s dunk with an alley-oop pass, a play they executed to perfection in the second quarter, too. Chris Paul, who finished with eight assists, hit a 3-pointer for his first basket of the game as part of the run.
