Paul, Clippers cruise past 76ers
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Chris Paul tallied 25 points and 13 assists and DeAndre Jordan fell one rebound shy of a career-high as the LA Clippers downed the Philadelphia 76ers, 94-83, from Wells Fargo Center.
Jordan shot 5-of-7 for 11 points while grabbing a season-high 21 rebounds as the Clippers improved to .500 on the road. LA is 2-2 on its current seven-game road trip with visits to Boston, Brooklyn and Washington still on tap.
Blake Griffin scored a game-high 26 points in the triumph.
Evan Turner finished with 25 points, eight boards and five assists in the setback, as Philly lost its third straight and seventh in eight tries. Thaddeus Young registered a 16-point, 11-rebound double-double while Tony Wroten, starting for the injured Michael Carter-Williams, filled the stat sheet with nine points, 10 boards and seven helpers.
Philly did receive good news before the game as Carter-Williams, who missed his third straight game with an infection in his right knee after registering his first career triple-double against the Magic on Dec. 3, was released from the hospital prior to the game. Carter-Williams has re-joined the team and is considered day-to-day.
