LOS ANGELES — Heading into Saturday’s matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers, point guard Chris Paul had never lost to the 76ers in a Clippers uniform. That trend wasn’t going to change as Paul led the way with 30 points and 7 assists to get the 112-110 win.

Paul connected on all four of his three-point attempts to help the Clippers’ get their fourth win in five games. 

DeAndre Jordan finished with 19 points and 20 rebounds, and Blake Griffin chipped in with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

Richuan Holmes — off the bench — led Philly with 24 points and nine rebounds, and Dario Saric finished 16 points. 

L.A. improved to 5-5 since the All-Star break. 

After Philly outscored the Clippers in both the second and third quarters, L.A. used a 9-0 run to open the fourth quarter to take control of the game. Mid-fourth quarter, Philly got to within a point with a little over five minutes to go, but some free-throws from Jordan and crisp passing led to another quick 7-0 run.

The 76ers gave up 20 rebounds in back-to-back games (Jusuf Nurkic, Blazers).
