Clippers Finally Defeat Spurs 90-85

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) – When you’re the worst team playing the best team, it helps to have a player like Blake Griffin.

Griffin poured in 31 points with 13 rebounds and the Los Angeles Clippers ended an 18-game losing streak to San Antonio with a 90-85 win over the Spurs on Wednesday.

Griffin was 14-of-21 from the field and scored 29 of his points through the first three quarters as the Clippers — an NBA-worst 3-15 entering the game — beat San Antonio for the first time since March 7, 2006.

George Hill had 17 points to lead the Spurs while Tim Duncan scored only eight in a surprising loss.

San Antonio was a league-leading 15-2 coming into the game, the best start in franchise history, and had already beaten the Clippers twice this season, but shot only 36 percent from the field.
