Clippers handle skidding Raptors

Jan 23, 2012 - 4:20 AM Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Mo Williams scored 26 points off the bench, helping the Los Angeles Clippers dominate the skidding Toronto Raptors, 103-91.

DeAndre Jordan added 16 points and 16 rebounds for the Clippers, who went 2-1 on a three-game homestand. Blake Griffin tallied 18 points and nine boards.

Randy Foye and Caron Butler both donated 15 points for Los Angeles, which played its fifth straight game without guard Chris Paul (hamstring).

"Mo came out and shot the ball well and was really on fire again. He's done a great job for us lately, especially being aggressive off the bench," Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro said.

Leandro Barbosa and Linas Kleiza ended with 19 and 16 points, respectively, for the Raptors, who have lost eight in a row. DeMar DeRozan tallied 15 points and eight rebounds.

Jordan was the star of a big first quarter for the Clippers and his free throw with eight minutes remaining sparked a 13-0 run. Butler recorded a rare four- point play during the burst, which Griffin capped with two free throws for a 22-6 margin with 2:47 to go.

Rasual Butler stopped the surge with a three-pointer, but Griffin and Jordan combined to score the next five points of the contest. Barbosa's jumper with 6.4 seconds left cut the gap to 27-11 after 12 minutes.

"We compete harder in practice than we do to start the games," Toronto head coach Dwane Casey said.

Toronto got back into the game with a 9-0 flurry early in the second. Barbosa's pair of layups made it 29-22 with 9:22 to go.

But Williams made a three-pointer about two minutes later to give LA a 36-24 edge and the home team held a 49-37 lead at the half.

Los Angeles started the second half on an 11-1 run. Griffin and Foye made back-to-back three-pointers to give the Clippers a 60-38 margin over two minutes into the third quarter.

The home team took a 76-58 margin into the fourth and cruised to victory from there.
