Clippers stay hot with win over Jazz

Blake Griffin scored 24 points, grabbed eight rebounds and handed out six assists as the Los Angeles Clippers took down the Utah Jazz, 105-96, on Saturday.

Chris Paul tallied 26 points and Randy Foye supplied 17 for the Clippers, who swept a five-game homestand. They won five straight games for the first time since November 2006, and have won seven straight at home overall.

The win improved their record to 11-9 in March, as they became the first NBA team in 45 years to play 20 games in one calendar month.

Al Jefferson paced the Jazz with 26 points and Paul Millsap notched 18 in defeat, their third in a row. Utah lost the season series against Los Angeles for the first time since the 2005-06 season.
