Blake Griffin and Chris Paul scored 23 points apiece, and the Los Angeles Clippers hung another rout on the Lakers, winning 120-97 Sunday to take three of four games this season from their beleaguered Staples Center co-tenants.

It wasn't quite the blowout of the Clippers' previous two wins — 48 points on March 6 and 36 points on Jan. 10 — but they were easily in command as the designated home team.

J.J. Redick added 15 points and DeAndre Jordan had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacific Division-winning Clippers, who improved to 32-6 at home.

The injury-plagued Lakers were down to just eight players after guard Kent Bazemore got hurt in the second quarter. Jordan Hill led them with 22 points and Nick Young added 18 points off the bench.
