Chris Paul scored 13 points and Jeff Green scored 11 as the Clippers on Tuesday night took a lead of 52-44 over the Lakers into the halftime break at Staples Center.

This is the first of a back-to-back with the Lakers, meaning it’s the final two times the Clippers will play against the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, who is retiring after this season.

Bryant began the game shooting 0 of 8, but made his final two shots of the half. He has six points. D’Angelo Russell led the Lakers with 12 points and Metta World Peace scored 10.
