NBA scores: Clippers can't lose, Lakers finish road trip strong

USA TODAY Sports

The Clippers have won nine straight following a brief four-game skid at the end of November, and the Lakers might have turned a corner with two wins over the weekend.

The Los Angeles Clippers notched a victory on Saturday in Milwaukee to extend their winning streak to nine games, while the Lakers snagged two wins over the weekend to wrap up a four-game road trip.

The Clippers (17-6) won their ninth consecutive game with a 111-85 blowout of the Milwaukee Bucks at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Saturday. Matt Barnes came off the bench to lead the Clippers with 21 points, and Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan each posted double-doubles in the win.

The Lakers (11-14) snapped a four-game skid on Friday night by downing the lowly Washington Wizards, 102-96 at the Verizon Center. Kobe Bryant led the way led the way for Los Angeles with 30 points, Jodie Meeks scored a season-high 24 points and Dwight Howard chipped in with 12 points and 14 rebounds in the win.

Mike D'Antoni's squad carried the momentum from the win on Friday night into Philadelphia on Sunday and knocked off the 76ers, 111-98. Bryant led all scorers with 34 points, but the most impressive performance of the night came from Metta World Peace, who notched a double-double with 19 points and a career-high 16 rebounds.
