The Los Angeles Clippers — yes, the CLIPPERS! — are the hottest team in the NBA. Their latest victory came against the Utah Jazz in a contest that they trailed by as many as 19 points. However, the Clippers never gave up and came back to claim their 16th straight win.
Said Blake Griffin: “This one is a great win for us because we kind of needed a challenge.”
Griffin had 22 points, 13 rebounds and three assists for the Clippers. L.A. was actually led in scoring by Chris Paul, who totaled 29 points and six assists to go with only one turnover in 38 minutes of play.
The Jazz got 28 points from Randy Foye and 22 from Al Jefferson but it wasn’t enough to hold on.
