Chris Paul had 28 points and 15 assists, Blake Griffin added 25 points, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat Detroit 112-103 Saturday night to extend the Pistons' losing streak to five games.

The Clippers, coming off a 110-100 loss at Denver that ended their 11-game overall winning streak, extended their home winning streak to seven. They shot 54 percent from the field and improved to 24-1 when finishing at 50 percent or better.

DeAndre Jordan had 12 rebounds for the Pacific Division leaders, who have had at least one player with double-digit rebounds in a franchise-record 46 consecutive games. The previous mark was 44, by the 1977 Buffalo Braves.

Jonas Jerebko had 22 points and nine rebounds off the bench for the Pistons.
