(NBA) Crawford leads way for Clippers
(02-25 15:10)

Jamal Crawford (Pictured) drained seven of the Los Angeles Clippers' 16 three-pointers on Monday as the Clippers wrapped up a three-game US National Basketball Association road trip with a 123-110 victory over New Orleans.
One day after they knocked off the Western Conference-leading Thunder in Oklahoma City, the Clippers showed no sign of easing off.
Crawford scored 24 points, Blake Griffin added 22 and Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan both notched double-doubles – Paul contributing 19 points and 13 assists against his former team and Jordan scoring 14 points and pulling down 16 rebounds.
Anthony Davis led New Orleans with 26 points and 11 rebounds but was hit with a costly technical foul late in New Orleans' fourth straight defeat.
Los Angeles connected on six three-pointers in the second quarter as they stretched their lead to 61-53 at halftime.
Crawford added two more from beyond the arc early in the third period and Griffin's 9-0 scoring run stretched the Clippers' lead to 76-58 just four minutes into the quarter.
New Orleans trimmed the deficit to 10 points with 7:39 left to play when Jeff Withey put back a Tyreke Evans miss.
But Crawford answered with a three-pointer, and three free throws from Paul after Davis' foul and subsequent technical gave the Clippers a comfortable 111-95 lead.
Earlier Monday the Clippers confirmed they had inked seven-year veteran forward Glen Davis, who became a free agent after he was bought out of his contract by Orlando.—AFP
