Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Blake Griffin had 19 points and nine rebounds in the Los Angeles Clippers' 102-83 win over the Toronto Raptors.

Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford netted 16 points apiece for Los Angeles, which has won six straight on the heels of a four-game skid.

DeMar DeRozan poured in 24 points for the Raptors, who have lost four consecutive contests and 10 of their last 11.

Linas Kleiza added 17 points in the setback.

DeRozan's putback layup pulled Toronto within 81-79 with 9:06 left in the fourth quarter, but the Clippers countered with an elongated 18-1 run.

Eric Bledsoe, who had seven points during the surge, capped it with a driving layup and made it 99-80 with 4:30 to play. Crawford registered a four-point play during the stretch, the NBA-record 35th of his NBA career.
