Jared Dudley added 20 points and Chris Paul finished with 12 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, who have won three in a row and five of their last six.

"We made a number of poor decisions, we're getting open shots, it's disheartening seeing that ball go in and out," Pelicans head coach Monty Williams said.

An Al-Farouq Aminu dunk pulled the Pelicans within 55-51 early in the third before the Clippers responded with a 15-2 run to seize control of the contest. Griffin netted six points during the surge, including a driving dunk to cap it and extend the LA margin to 70-53 midway through the frame.
