Clippers beat Bucks, 109-95, to stretch winning streak to three games

The Clippers have won three games in a row for this first time since opening the season with a 4-0 start, beating the Milwaukee Bucks, 109-95, on Wednesday.

It was their second straight victory on the road at the start of their five-game trip, and their sixth win in their last seven games.

The Clippers went on an 11-0 run to take a seven-point lead, 63-56, after Chris Paul made a three-pointer with 5 minutes and 40 seconds left in the third quarter. Redick led that charge, and finished with 15 points in the third quarter, just one point shy of his career-high of 16 points in one quarter.

They never trailed again and extended their lead to as much as 16 points in the fourth quarter.

Redick, who entered Wednesday’s game averaging 13.4 points this season, finished with a game-high 31 points on 11-for-18 shooting from the field, and six-for-nine shooting from beyond the three-point line.

Blake Griffin had 21 points, 14 rebounds and four assists. Chris Paul, in his second game back after missing two games because of inflamed rib cartilage, had 18 points and a season-high 18 assists. DeAndre Jordan added 19 rebounds to go along with nine points, four of which came off dunks.

The Clippers -- who have struggled from the three-point line and on the boards this season -- outshot the Bucks from beyond the arc, 42.9% to 20%, and outrebounded them, 51-40.

The Bucks were led by Michael Carter-Williams, who had 20 points and 11 assists off the bench.
