LOS ANGELES (AP) — Eric Gordon scored nine of his 24 points during the final 4:46 in his return to the lineup, Blake Griffin had 20 points and 14 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Clippers snapped a five-game losing streak with a 106-103 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.

Gordon shot 8 for 18 in 35 minutes after missing 18 games because of a sprained right wrist that had a small fracture in it.

He was leading the team with a 24.1 scoring average when he was injured in a victory against Golden State on Jan. 22 at Staples Center.

Chris Kaman scored 10 of his 21 points off the bench in the fourth quarter. Point guard Mo Williams and forward Jamario Moon played their first home game for the Clippers following last week’s trade that sent Baron Davis to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Williams finished with 17 points and 11 assists.

Kyle Lowry led Houston with 24 points and 11 assists, and Courtney Lee added 18 points off the bench.
