LOS ANGELES---The Los Angeles Clippers shone
on their return home, cruising to an authoritative
115-92 victory over San Antonio in Monday s clash
of NBA divisional leaders.
The Clippers performance was the highlight on a
day when Detroit handed Indiana its first home-
court loss of the season, Atlanta was too good for
the misfiring Los Angeles Lakers, and LeBron James
led Miami past Utah.
Blake Griffin scored 27 points, hitting 11 of 15 free
throws, as the Clippers relished a return to Los Angeles
following a seven-game road trip.
Chris Paul added 23 points, eight rebounds and
seven assists for the Clippers, who repelled several
threats in the third quarter to maintain their lead.
Tim Duncan had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the
Spurs, whose four-game winning streak ended.
Detroit s Josh Smith had 30 points to lead the Pis-
tons to a surprise 101-96 win at Indiana.
Lance Stephenson had a season high 23 points for
the Pacers, who had won their first 11 home matches.
The defeat left Oklahoma City as the only team
unbeaten at home with a 12-0 record.
Atlanta s Kyle Korver sank three three-pointers in
a dominant third quarter which set up the Hawks
114-100 win over the Lakers.
Al Horford scored 19 points and grabbed 11 rebounds
for the Hawks.
Los Angeles Kobe Bryant made only four of 14
shots for eight points, with his game emblematic of
his team s poor shooting.
Miami s LeBron James finished with 30 points,
nine rebounds and nine assists despite sitting some
of the second half after twisting an ankle, and led
the Heat to a 117-94 win over Utah.
Dwyane Wade added 27 points for Miami, which
notched its 17th straight victory over a Western Con-
ference opponent, the second-longest regular-season
streak by an Eastern Conference team in NBA history.
Boston won 20 straight over the West during a nine-
month span of 1973.
