LOS ANGELES — The Clippers took the lead early and never looked back as Austin Rivers finished with 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting to get L.A. a win, 108-95. They just got home from a 1-4 road trip and there’s not a better opponent than this young Phoenix team to help you get back on track. 

“We’ve got to stay in this until we get our guys back,” Rivers said. “Whoever is on the floor, let’s just attack.”

Lou Williams added 18 points off the bench, ad big man DeAndre Jordan did what he does best — finishing with 12 points and 20 rebounds.

“We’re trying to win as many games as we can right now and hold the fort until Blake and Gallo get back,” head coach Doc Rivers said.

The Suns were without their leading scorer, Devin Booker (strained left abductor). Booker was averaging 24.3 points per game until he got injured on Dec. 5.

T.J. Warren led Phoenix with 22 points. Josh Jackson added 18. 

This marked the Clippers’ ninth-straight win over the Suns at STAPLES Center.
