Blake Griffin flirted with a triple-double on his 25th birthday and his Los Angeles Clippers rolled to a 102-80 triumph over the Cleveland Cavaliers from Staples Center.
Griffin finished with 21 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists in the rout, with Chris Paul tallying 16 points and 15 assists and DeAndre Jordan scoring 15 to go with 11 boards.
Seven Clippers reached double figures in LA's 11th consecutive win.
The Cavaliers had to play most of this one without All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, who left late in the first quarter with a left bicep injury. Luol Deng had a game-high 23 points as the Cavs saw their brief two-game road winning streak come to an end.
