Clippers Fall To 76ers On Griffin’s 22nd Birthday

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jodie Meeks scored 22 points and Jrue Holiday added nine of his 20 in the final 6 1/2 minutes, leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a 104-94 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.

Elton Brand had 19 points and 12 rebounds, helping the Sixers tie the idle New York Knicks for sixth place in the Eastern Conference. Brand played for the Clippers for six seasons and left for free agency as their career rebounding leader and third-leading scorer.

Randy Foye led Los Angeles with 18 points and DeAndre Jordan added 16 points and 15 rebounds.

The 76ers didn’t treat Clippers All-Star rookie Blake Griffin too kindly on his 22nd birthday, forcing him to miss his first six shots and holding him to 14 points on 3 for 12 shooting.
