NBA Scores: Clippers down Blazers, top Pacific division

Craig Mitchelldyer-US PRESSWIRE

The Clippers and Thunder won a pair of Thursday games in the spotlight on national television.

The Los Angeles Clippers flexed some muscle to down the Portland Trail Blazers as three Western Conference teams were in action on Thursday night.

The Clippers outrebounded the Blazers, 44-31, en route to a 103-90 victory on Thursday night. Blake Griffin led the Clippers with ten rebounds while DeAndre Jordan added eight, including six on the offensive glass. Jamal Crawford led L.A. in scoring with 25 points off the bench.

The win moved Los Angeles to the top of the Pacific division on the young season with a 4-2 record. That puts the Phoenix Suns at 1.5 games back with a 2-3 record. The Golden State Warriors are just behind the Clippers at 3-2.

Also in action Thursday night were the Oklahoma City Thunder, who took care of the Chicago Bulls by the score of 97-91. Kevin Durant scored 10 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter, as the Thunder buried the Bulls, 31-19, in the final quarter. The Bulls' Luol Deng and Rip Hamilton combined for 47 points in the losing effort.
