LOS ANGELES, March 21 (UPI) -- Chris Paul helped Los Angeles rebound from a poor effort 24 hours earlier with 19 points Wednesday, lifting the Clippers to a 101-72 win over Philadelphia.

Los Angeles fell to Sacramento on Tuesday while Paul was committing seven turnovers.

He added nine assists, six rebounds and five steals against the 76ers, who were overrun in the second half. Philadelphia opened a four-game road trip that will include stops in Denver, Sacramento and Utah. The 76ers have lost 14 straight away from home.

Caron Butler scored 14 points for the Clippers and Willie Green added 13. Los Angeles hit 53 percent from the field.

Spencer Hawes paced the 76ers with 16 points. All-Star guard Jrue Holiday made just 1-of-8 from the field and scored only two points.
