Blake Griffin led seven players in double figures with 22 points on 9 of 12 shooting and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Detroit Pistons 129-97 on Sunday night for their 10th win in 13 games.
Chris Paul had 20 points and 14 assists, and Caron Butler added 15 points before leaving in the third quarter with a left elbow contusion. Matt Barnes had 16 points, DeAndre Jordan added 13 points and seven rebounds, Willie Green 11 points and Chauncey Billups 10 points.
The Clippers set season highs for points scored and shooting percentage (62) while leading the entire game. Their old high of 125 points came in a win over the Lakers last month.
Jose Calderon was one of five Pistons in double figures with 18 points as they lost their fifth in a row overall, fourth straight to the Clippers, and fell to 0-11 on the road against Western Conference opponents.

If you were in bed before 11pm last night, you may have missed the dunk of the year-or at least one of the top 3. I don’t usually post things on other teams, but this is worth a look. Deandre Jordan of the Clippers absolutely baptized poor Brandon Knight of Detroit. Twitter exploded with some pretty great tweets. Enjoy the dunk, some of the tweets, and a few pics….
We lost another...
DeAndre Jordan is right where he belongs--as part of the high flying dunk-tastic team affectionately known as Lob City, but officially known as the Los Angeles Clippers.
He proved that on Sunday with this dunk--a powerful, dominating jam that Brandon Knight is going to see in his sleep for at least the next few days.

Pistons 129-97 on Sunday night for their 10th win in 13 games.
The Los Angeles Clippers connected for one of the fiercest alley-oops of the season on Sunday night, and Blake Griffin wasn’t even on the floor. This particular lob came from Chris Paul and was deposited by DeAndre Jordan. Unfortunately for Detroit Pistons point guard Brandon Knight, it was done so at his expense.
You have to give Knight credit. There aren’t many situations where...

Remember when Blake Griffin posterized Pau Gasol multiple times in one game, well DeAndre Jordan might of just outdone him (and with only one dunk).

DeAndre Jordan dunks on Brandon Knight, lays him out to rest
DeAndre Jordan, of Los Angeles Clippers fame, put an exclamation point on his season by dunking (slam dunking, to be exact) on Detroit Pistons guard, Brandon Knight.

LeRoyMcConnell III I don’t know who to blame, Chris Paul for setting Brandon Knight up or DeAndre Jordan for posterize dunk on Brandon who was simply trying to draw a charge. Not only did he fell taking the charge; but the ref had the nerve to call Knight for a blocking foul! Oh, that was the least of his worries! What is the most humiliating thing that can happen to...
