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.
