Recap: LA Clippers vs. Orlando

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Darren Collison scored a season-high 21 points and dished out seven assists as the Los Angeles Clippers cruised to a 101-81 win over the Orlando Magic on Monday.

Blake Griffin poured in 16 points to go with eight rebounds and six assists and DeAndre Jordan added 14 points, 17 boards and eight blocks for the Clippers, winners in three of their last four games.

"I'm just in the right spots. I can control how hard I work defensively. I like the pressure. When we focus on getting stops, we get a lot of easy buckets," said Jordan.
