The Los Angeles Clippers did something they hadn't done in nine years on Wednesday night, beating the Utah Jazz on the road, a hard-fought 107-105 victory. The win snapped a 16-game losing streak for the Clippers in Salt Lake City, and was just their second win in their last 44 road games against the Jazz.
Chris Paul, with 34 points and 11 assists, and Blake Griffin with 31 points and 14 rebounds, led the way for the Clippers, becoming the rare Clippers duo with 30 points in the same game. Griffin was also a part of the last Clippers duo with 30 points in the same game, along with Eric Gordon last March 23 against the Washington Wizards.
