Recap: LA Clippers vs. Phoenix

Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - DeAndre Jordan had 20 points and 12 rebounds in the Los Angeles Clippers' 126-101 rout of the Phoenix Suns.

"My teammates put me in position for easy baskets," Jordan, who had eight dunks, said.

Chris Paul tallied 15 points, 12 assists and four steals for the Clippers, who reached 50 wins for the first time in franchise history after snapping a three-game losing steak.

The 50 victories surpassed the 49 triumphs set by the Buffalo Braves during the 1974-75 campaign.

The Clips can clinch their first Pacific Division title with a win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday or if Golden State loses Friday at Phoenix.

Wesley Johnson netted 20 points to lead Phoenix, which has dropped seven consecutive contests.

The Clippers stormed out of the gate with the game's first 15 points before taking a 29-19 lead after a quarter of play. They took a 57-50 advantage into the break and blew the contest wide open in the third with a 31-8 run.

"We have to do a better job of preparing, the start was embarrasing," Suns interim head coach Lindsey Hunter said.

Willie Green recorded 11 points during the burst, while Jordan added 10 as Los Angeles opened up a 93-66 cushion late into the third before heading into the final frame with a 95-70 margin.

The margin reached its peak at 28 in the fourth.
