Williams, Clippers Knock Off Celtics, 108-103

The Los Angeles Clippers got their biggest road win of the season tonight, beating the Boston Celtics, the team with the second-best record in the NBA, 108-103, at TD Garden in Boston. Mo Williams scored 28 points to lead the Clippers, while center DeAndre Jordan scored 21 points and had nine rebounds. The Clippers have won four straight games, and are now 4-1 since acquiring Williams and Jamario Moon from the Cavaliers.

The Celtics are the sixth first-place team the Clippers have beaten this season. The Clippers beat the Thunder, Lakers, Heat, and Spurs at home, and they vanquished the Bulls and Celtics on the road. Ray Allen led Boston with 23 points, while Nenad Krstic scored 20 and pulled down nine rebounds for Boston. All five Celtics' starters scored in double figures, but the Clippers bench outscored Boston 26-12.

Blake Griffin was held to 4-of-14 shooting, and it's news when he doesn't get a double-double. Griffin had 12 points and seven boards tonight, just the 11th non-double-double for Griffin this season. Boston's defensive attention on Griffin allowed Jordan to roam free, and he made nine of his 10 field goal attempts on the night.

The Clippers made 9-of-20 three-pointers on the night, including five treys by Williams. The win was just the seventh road win of the season for the Clippers, who continue their road trip Friday night in New Jersey against the Nets. Boston fell to 27-6 at home this season.

Clippers Look To Extend Winning Streak Facing Celtics In Boston

The Los Angeles Clippers look for their fourth straight win tonight, but will have to beat the Boston Celtics at TD Garden to do it. The Clippers won the opener to their five-game road trip on Monday night in Charlotte, 92-87, their sixth road win of the season. The Celtics are 27-5 at home this season.

The two teams met once this season, on February 26 at Staples Center, a 99-92 win for Boston. Blake Griffin had 21 points and 11 rebounds for the Clippers in defeat, while the Celtics got 62 points combined from Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett. That win, just 11 days ago, was the first of five straight victories for Boston.

Griffin is closing in on a franchise double-double record. He currently has 54 games of 10 or more points and rebounds, second in the NBA to Kevin Love of Minnesota, and is one shy of the Clippers' record (from 1986-2011, per the team game notes) of 55 double-doubles in a season, set by Elton Brand in the 2001-2002 season.

In four games since joining the Clippers' starting lineup, Mo Williams has averaged 16.8 points and 7.0 assists per game, and the team is 3-1. The Clippers are 12-44 all-time in Boston. Tonight's 4:30 p.m. PST game is broadcast on Prime Ticket.
