Clippers beat Chicago Bulls, 120-93, for fourth consecutive victory

Jamal Crawford did more in the first two minutes of the fourth quarter than many bench players can do in a game.

He had a pair of old-fashioned three-point plays, beat the defense with a crossover dribble that led to a driving layup and flung a pass to Wesley Johnson in the corner for a three-pointer.

By the time the flurry of activity was over, the Clippers were ahead by 18 points and well on their way to a 120-93 victory over the Chicago Bulls at Staples Center on Sunday.

Crawford finished with 26 points on 11-for-15 shooting to help the Clippers extend their winning streak to four games. They have gone 25-8 since starting the season 7-8 and are 15-3 without Blake Griffin, who last played on Christmas before suffering a quadriceps injury and a broken hand.

J.J. Redick had 21 points and DeAndre Jordan added 20 rebounds, 17 points and four blocks for the Clippers, who made 53.6% of their shots and 17 of 32 three-pointers (53.1%). Clippers point guard Chris Paul had 19 points and seven assists.

Jimmy Butler had 23 points for the Bulls, who departed with a split against the Los Angeles teams after beating the Lakers on Thursday.

The Clippers will have two days off before playing the Minnesota Timberwolves at Staples Center on Wednesday.
