Rockets Vs. Clippers: Chris Paul, Blake Griffin Lead L.A. To 117-89 Win

Chris Paul had 20 points and 10 assists and Blake Griffin had 22 points as the Los Angeles Clippers downed the Houston Rockets 117-89 on Wednesday night.

Paul and Griffin were two of five Clippers players in double figures on the night. Los Angeles built a 15-point lead after the first quarter and held a double-digit lead after the second and third quarters before the late-game exploits of Randy Foye (16 points) allowed the Clippers to win in a full-on rout.

The Rockets lost their second straight game in Los Angeles against the Clippers, and were even less competitive a night after allowing Kobe Bryant to score 37 points while Andrew Bynum scored 21 points and pulled down 22 rebounds. Against the Clippers, no Rocket scored more than Kyle Lowry's 17 points, and Houston allowed Los Angeles to shoot a blistering 57.3 percent from the field.

The Clippers had just seven turnovers, while Houston committed 19.
