Recap: Chicago vs. LA Clippers

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Blake Griffin had 26 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists as the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Chicago Bulls, 112-95, on Friday night.

Jamal Crawford netted 19 points off the bench, J.J. Redick added 18 and Darren Collison chipped in with 17 for the Clippers, who moved to 7-3 since losing point guard Chris Paul to a shoulder injury.

LA made 10 of its first 11 3-pointers of the game before finishing 13-of-21 from beyond the arc.

Carlos Boozer tallied 22 points and nine rebounds for Chicago, which had a three-game winning streak snapped.

"We didn't cover the (3-point) line at all, so they pretty much had their way," Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said.

The game was tied at 16-16 midway through the opening frame, before the Clippers outscored the Bulls 25-10 the rest of the way to open up a 41-26 advantage after a quarter of play.

LA hit seven of its triples in the first and shot 73.7 percent (14-of-19) during the period.

"We got great shots and we made shots. We made everything in the first quarter," Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said.

DeAndre Jordan punctuated a 15-2 Clippers run during the middle stages of the second by throwing down Griffin's lob to stake them a 60-39 cushion, the largest of the game.

Los Angeles led 68-55 at the break and took a 92-80 advantage into the fourth, where the visitors coasted to the easy win.
