Clippers open seven-game road trip with 114-90 victory over Orlando Magic

It took leaving California for the Clippers to score their first real rout of the season.

The Clippers opened a seven-game road trip with a strong win, beating the Orlando Magic, 114-90, on Wednesday.

One game after the Clippers conducted a locker room discussion about trust issues, the players moved the ball beautifully and finished with six players in double figures.

Jamal Crawford had 22 points, Blake Griffin had 20 points, Chris Paul had 16 points and nine assists, Jordan Farmar and Matt Barnes each finished with 13 points, and Spencer Hawes added 10 points.

The Clippers shot better than the Magic from the field, 53.6% to 39.5%. From the three-point line, they were much better, at 57.1% to 33.3%. And in their first of back-to-back games, the Clippers rested their starters the entire fourth quarter.

This season, the Clippers have been known to give up double-digit leads during games, but on Wednesday, they never trailed.

The Clippers play the Heat in Miami on Thursday.
