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.
