LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Bosh scored 34 points, Hassan Whiteside had career highs of 23 points and 16 rebounds and the Miami Heat beat the Los Angeles Clippers 104-90 on Sunday to end a three-game road skid.
Dwyane Wade added 17 points on 5-of-15 shooting and had 10 assists.
The Clippers had no answer for the 7-foot Whiteside in his third year out of Marshall. His offensive display ran the gamut from tip-ins to dunks to jumpers. About the only thing Whiteside didn’t do was try a 3-pointer. He was 10 of 13 from the field and 3 of 4 from the line in 28 minutes.
Blake Griffin scored 26 points and Chris Paul had 23 points and nine assists for the Clippers. They had won two straight and six of their previous eight.
Paul, Matt Barnes, DeAndre Jordan and Jamal Crawford were whistled for technical fouls and the team spent much of the game barking at the referees.
