LOS ANGELES (AP) – Eric Gordon scored 28 points and rookie Blake Griffin had 25 points and 15 rebounds for the Los Angeles Clippers, who took full advantage of their new one-two punch to beat the Sacramento Kings 100-82 on Thursday night.
Center Chris Kaman was sidelined for the eighth straight game because of a sprained left ankle and point guard Baron Davis was sidelined for the 12th time in 13 games because of a swollen left knee.
But the Clippers, coming off a 99-95 victory over New Orleans on Monday that snapped a nine-game losing streak, posted consecutive wins for the first time since a three-game stretch last
Carl Landry scored 18 points for Sacramento, which has lost nine of their last 10 games after a 3-1 start.
