PHOENIX, Arizona – Blake Griffin scored 23 points and Jamal Crawford added 22 as the Los Angeles Clippers stretched their team-record NBA win streak to 13 games by routing the Phoenix Suns 103-77 on Sunday.

The Clippers, a laughingstock of the league for years, have not lost since November 26, shattering the old club mark of 11 consecutive triumphs established in the 1974-75 season when the team was based in Buffalo.
