Whatever troubles the Los Angeles Clippers had finishing their game against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday were long forgotten tonight. The Clippers came out strong and unrelenting in tonight’s 106-77 victory against the Boston Celtics, improving their franchise-record winning streak to 15-straight. Not only do the Clippers have the best record in the NBA right now, but they’ve become the first team to win this many games in a row since the Celtics during the 2008-2009 season.
For the Clippers, Matt Barnes led the team with 21 points, tying his season high. Jamal Crawford followed with 17 points, and Blake Griffin put up 15 points and 8 rebounds. Ever the giver, Chris Paul dished out 11 assists to go along with his 8 points.
For the Celtics, Kevin Garnett led the team with 16 points. Paul Pierce and Courtney Lee each added 12 points.
There’s no doubt that the Clippers’ streak is impressive, but they need to maintain their focus to continue the success. Tomorrow’s rematch against the Utah Jazz will be tough, as the Clippers only defeated the Jazz by 1 point earlier this month.
