SACRAMENTO, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Chris Paul
had his second straight big game Friday and wrapped it up from the free-throw line in boosting the Los Angeles Clippers past Sacramento 110-101.
Paul scored 42 points on Thursday against Golden State, equaling the largest single-game total of the season, and added 26 points and 10 assists against the Kings.
Los Angeles led by just one before J.J. Redick made a technical free throw with 2:48 to play and the Clippers clinched the win by hitting eight foul shots the rest of the way. Four of those free throws came from Paul, who was perfect in nine attempts from the line.
Blake Griffin added 20 points and 17 rebounds for the Clippers while Jamal Crawford came off the bench to score 18 points.
Isaiah Thomas scored 29 points for the Kings, who had won their season opener.
