Griffin leads Clippers to 117-105 win over Nuggets

U.S. Sports Desk, Apr 16 (EFE).- The Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Denver Nuggets 117-105 behind a strong performance from Blake Griffin, setting a franchise record with their 57th win of the season. In the team's last regular-season game of the 2013-2014 season at Staples Center, where it also set a franchise record with a home mark of 34-7, the Clippers built a 12-point lead Tuesday night at the end of the first quarter and had increased that advantage to 17 points by halftime.

Preview: Nuggets at Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers attempt to set a franchise record for victories in a season when they visit the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday. Los Angeles matched the record of 56 wins set last season with Saturday’s 117-101 victory over the Sacramento Kings and can break the mark with a victory in either of its last two games. The Clippers will be the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference if they lose once more or if Oklahoma City wins its final game.

Clippers 112, Suns 108

Clippers 112, Suns 108: Blake Griffin and Darren Collison scored 23 points apiece as visiting Los Angeles came from 14 points down in the fourth quarter against Phoenix to clinch its second straight Pacific Division title.

Clippers defeat Timberwolves for third straight win MINNEAPOLIS -- Missing an All-Star, a Sixth Man of the Year frontrunner and two other notable players, the Los Angeles Clippers just keep rolling, right over the Minnesota Timberwolves 114-104 at Target Center.

Preview: Clippers at Rockets

The Los Angeles Clippers look to complete a four-game season sweep of Houston when they visit the Rockets on Saturday. Los Angeles holds a one-game lead over Houston for third place in the Western Conference race and both teams are trying to secure homecourt advantage for the first round of the playoffs. The Rockets have won five straight games but received bad news on Friday, learning that point guard Patrick Beverley will be sidelined indefinitely due to torn meniscus cartilage.

Preview: Clippers at Mavericks

Nobody on the Los Angeles Clippers should be looking forward to playing the second of back-to-back games more than Chris Paul. He’ll take the floor Thursday against the host Dallas Mavericks a night after delivering the worst-shooting performance in Clippers’ history, missing all 12 of his field-goal attempts in Wednesday’s two-point loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. The loss backed the Clippers within a game of the fourth-place Houston Rockets in the Western Conference standings.

Preview: Bucks at Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers never won 50 games prior to last season and are just a victory away from reaching the mark again entering Monday’s home game against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Clippers posted 56 victories a season ago for the best-ever campaign by a franchise that began play in 1970-71 as the Buffalo Braves and can threaten that mark with a strong finish. Los Angeles has won 12 of 13 games while the Bucks have lost seven straight.

Preview: Cavaliers at Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers attempt to stretch their winning streak to 11 games when they face a team they traditionally struggle against. The Cleveland Cavaliers have won 12 of the last 14 meetings with the Clippers as they arrive for Sunday’s road outing and are also looking to make a late charge for the last Eastern Conference playoff spot. A Los Angeles victory would match an 11-game winning streak by the 1974-75 Buffalo Braves as the second-longest in franchise history.

There is not much good will between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers, and the teams are set to renew acquaintances in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Clippers forward Blake Griffin - last seen rolling around on the floor with Phoenix’s P.J. Tucker on Monday - was tossed from the Christmas night meeting and did not have a chance to get into it physically in a blowout loss the next meeting. Los Angeles brings an eight-game winning streak into this one.
