Clippers vs. Raptors recap: Blake Griffin leads L.A. to 102-83 win

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The Clippers improved to 14-6 on Sunday afternoon following their latest win.

The Los Angeles Clippers took advantage of a slumping Toronto Raptors team on Sunday afternoon, picking up the 102-83 victory. L.A. held just a four-point lead at the start of the fourth quarter, but a couple of big runs late and a stellar defensive performance ended any chance Toronto had at pulling the road upset.

The Clips are now 14-6 on the season. The Raptors fell to 4-17, and are now an NBA-worst 1-13 away from home.

Blake Griffin continued to play well on Sunday. The young forward went for 19 points, brought down nine rebounds, dished out four assists and even came away with three steals. Chris Paul added in 16 points and four assists. Los Angeles' bench really came to play against Toronto, combining for 47 points on just 38 shots.

DeMar DeRozen was the lone bright spot for the Raptors. DeRozen led all scorers with 24 points, although he posted a -18 plus-minus number while on the floor. Toronto took 26 shots from behind the three-point arc, and made it to the free throw line just 17 times.

The Clippers will look to continue their winning ways on Tuesday night as they hit the road to take on the Chicago Bulls. Tipoff is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. ET.
