Clippers Vs. Suns Final Score: L.A. Makes It 3 In A Row With 103-86 Win

The Los Angeles Clippers hosted the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night, in search of their third straight win and the chance to regain some momentum as the end of the season approaches. They got both in spades as they blew out the Suns by a final score of 103-86.

Blake Griffin was the star of the game. The power forward finished with 27 points, 14 rebounds and five assists. As usual, Griffin had several spectacular highlight-reel dunk, including a few dunks within a couple minutes of one another late in the fourth quarter. Chris Paul had 15 points and 15 assists.

After the game, Griffin was nursing a swollen lip that came as a result of a couple different elbows to the face throughout the very physical game. The best news for the Clips is that they appeared relaxed and confident and looked like they were having a lot of fun in a win that became effortless in the second half.

Los Angeles Clippers' Mo Williams Is Out At Least Two Weeks With An Injured Left Big Toe

As if the Los Angeles Clippers didn't have enough to deal with, one of their most important pieces, reserve guard Mo Williams, is now out with an injury.

The Sixth Man of the Year candidate and the Clippers' third leading scorer will be out for at least a couple of weeks with an injured left big toe, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com.

"It's going to be at least a couple of weeks and then we'll re-evaluate him then," Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro tells ESPNLosAngeles.com. "It's going to be at least a couple of weeks, that's what the specialist said."

With Chauncey Billups already out for the year, Williams' presence has been that much more important and he's come through with averages of 13.6 points and 3.1 assists per game this season. Williams injured his toe during the Clippers' loss to the New Orleans Hornets on last Thursday and was evaluated over the weekend.

The Clippers will now have to rely on second-year guard Eric Bledsoe until Williams gets healthy.
