Terrific games by J.J. Redick and DeAndre Jordan played a big part in the Clippers coming away with a 107-92 victory Saturday night at Denver.
Redick scored 25 points and made 4 of 10 from 3-point range and Jordan scored 14 points, grabbed 22 rebounds and blocked three shots. Chris Paul also had a nice game, scoring 23 points with nine assists. Blake Griffin scored 12 points with seven assists and four rebounds, but he missed all five of his free throws. Jordan, by the way, made 8 of 14 from the free-throw line, so for once he wasn’t the worst on the team in that department.
The Clippers (51-26) shot just 43 percent from the field overall, but a very respectable 38.2 percent (13 of 34) from 3-point range.
Hedo Turkoglu had another good game off the bench, scoring nine points on 3 of 5 from beyond the arc.
Wilson Chandler led Denver (28-49) 17 points and Kenneth Faried had 10 points and 14 rebounds.
The Clippers out-rebounded the Nuggets 47-44.
