Clippers Throttle Knicks

Al Bello/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Los Angeles Clippers righted the ship on the road in a big way.

Chris Paul had 26 points and six assists to lead the Clippers to a 102-88 win over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

Crawford had 27 points for Los Angeles (36-17), who overcame 42 points from New York's Carmelo Anthony. 

"Jamal, Chris, Blake, I mean everybody, it was a team effort. Everybody stepped up at some point," Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro said. Los Angeles made 10 three-pointers in the win.

Forty-year-old Grant Hill defended Anthony in the fourth quarter and held him to only one basket to stop a Knicks comeback effort. "I think that Grant Hill sitting on the bench the whole time, he came in and provided a great presence out there on Melo. I don't think we win that game without him," Crawford said.
