Sacramento, California:

Blake Griffin made three straight jumpers in the closing minutes to finish with 14 points and nine rebounds, lifting the Los Angeles Clippers over Sacramento.

Griffin's last jumper with 2:18 remaining put the Clippers ahead by three, and they held on to rebound from a loss to the Lakers a night earlier that ended a six-game winning streak - the franchise's best in 20 years - and slowed momentum to overtake its crosstown rival in the Pacific Division.

Randy Foye scored 20 points and Chris Paul had 13 points and eight assists for Los Angeles, closing to within two games of the Lakers.
