Caron Butler finished with 15 points for Los Angeles. Williams scored Los Angeles' first 17 points of the final quarter to give them a 93-73 lead with 7:22 remaining, after the Raptors trimmed a 22-point deficit to 13 on Leandro Barbosa's 3-pointer with 8:25 to play. Barbosa scored 19 points and Linas Kleiza added 16 for the Raptors, who began a five-game road trip by missing their first 15 shots and were 35.8 percent from the field overall. Toronto's DeMar DeRozan had 15 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Raptors leading scorer Andrea Bargnani missed his sixth games in a row with a left calf strain.

Los Angeles led 49-37 at halftime after Jordan helped them build an 18-point lead late in the first quarter with 10 points and nine rebounds. The Clippers extended the margin to 60-38 with an 11-1 run capped by Butler's 3-pointer. Foye got it started when he blocked a 19-foot jumper by DeRozan and went the other way for a driving layup. Moments later, Jordan converted Billups' alley-oop lob into a reverse slam dunk. Notes: The Raptors, who had a 13-game losing streak last season, haven't reached the 100-point mark in 16 straight games since their 104-96 win at Cleveland on opening night. They've allowed 100 or more only once, losing 102-96 at Orlando in their fourth game of the season. ... The Raptors are 19-13 against the Clippers and 8-8 against them at Staples Center. ... The Clippers are 9-0 when allowing fewer than 100 points and 0-5 when giving up 100 or more. ... Toronto is 0-10 when trailing after three quarters. ... DeRozan is 12 for 38 from 3-point range.
