The Los Angeles Clippers registered a comprehensive 107-94 win over the Utah Jazz at the StaplesCenter on Saturday to rebound from their thrashing at the hands of San Antonio Spurs on Thursday.
Humbled 116-90 at home to the Spurs last time out, the Clippers redeemed themselves in front of their fans with the clinical win over Utah, pulling away with a big third quarter.
Los Angeles led by two at the half but outscored their opponents 36-20 in the third to destroy the game as a contest with Blake Griffin, Caron Butler and Lamar Odom leading the way.
Griffin and Odom scored 18 points each while Butler put away a team high 21 points of his own along with five rebounds.
The win moved the Clippers to 40-18 on the year, keeping them in control on top of the Pacific Division.
The Jazz dropped to 31-25 but remain in the playoff zone as the seventh best team in the Western Conference.
