Clippers take on Jazz looking for 10th straight win

Tip-off: 6 p.m. PDT Friday, EnergySolutions Arena, Salt Lake City
TV/radio: Prime Ticket/KFWB 980, KWKU 1220
Update: With nine consecutive victories, the Clippers are on a streak they think might be a better one than pulled off last season, when they won 17 in a row last season. This team has done it while missing key parts like J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford and Jared Dudley, yet the Clippers keep scoring and are the highest scoring team in the league. . . . Their 111-98 win over Golden State Wednesday kept them in third place in the Western Conference standings and pushed them to five games ahead of the Warriors in the Pacific Division. . . . The addition of Danny Granger is looking a lot more promising. He came off the bench to score 18 points. “It’s getting comfortable,” Granger said. “The way this offense is, is so wide open. Anybody can push the ball. Blake (Griffin) can make plays on the open court, Chris (Paul) pushes, Matt (Barnes) pushes. We have a very unique team, with the ability to have so many play makers running the floor and you have shooters running the wings. You get a lot of shots, and I made a bunch of them.”
