The LA Clippers routed the visiting Brooklyn Nets 127-95 Monday night, and Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan repeatedly punished the rims.
Chris Paul had 21 points and nine assists; Griffin chipped in 20 points in the laugher.
The Clips (10-1) are enjoying the quickest start to the season in the NBA.
Per the AP:
“We have a singular focus,” Paul said. “No excuses, we said we’re going to come out the same way every night. It’s all about playing the right way. We got to keep building.”
Los Angeles came in having outscored opponents by an average of 15.1 points, largest in the league. Brooklyn quickly found itself relegated to the Clippers’ growing scrap heap.
J.J. Redick added 18 points, Luc Mbah a Moute scored 11 points and DeAndre Jordan had 14 rebounds for the Clippers, who shot 53 percent from the floor while extending the best start in franchise history. Their 127 points were a season high. […] “The defense is so good right now our offense is allowed easy baskets,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “They’re angry when the other team scores.”
