LOS ANGELES (AP) — DeAndre Jordan scored 20 points on 7-for-7 shooting, Chris Paul had 16 points, 13 assists and six rebounds, and the Los Angeles Clippers routed the New York Knicks 116-88 on Friday night.
The duo hooked up on a few alley-oops during the game as Jordan didn’t have to work hard to improve his NBA-leading field-goal percentage to 72.1 percent.
Paul Pierce finished with 13 points as the Clippers rebounded from Thursday’s 115-102 loss in Cleveland to win for the 12th time in 14 games. Los Angeles shot 56.6 percent from the field.
Carmelo Anthony scored 16 points, but shot just 4 for 12 for the Knicks (22-23), who were trying for a third straight win that would have moved them over .500. Kristaps Porzingis shot even worse, going 4 for 17 while finishing with 13 points and eight rebounds.
