Houston crash to fourth straight NBA loss
17:28 AEST Wed Jan 16 2013

Jamal Crawford scored a season-high 30 points as the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Houston Rockets 117-109, despite playing their second consecutive NBA game without star guard Chris Paul.

Paul sat out with a bruised kneecap, but it didn't matter as Eric Bledsoe filled in and registered a season-high 19 points along with seven rebounds, five assists and two steals on Tuesday.

Blake Griffin finished with 19 points and eight assists for the Clippers, who again received plenty of support from their bench players.

Crawford sank 11-of-20 from the field and Matt Barnes scored 18 to help Los Angeles become the NBA's second 30-win team.

James Harden scored 23 points and Jeremy Lin added 12 points and 10 assists for Houston, whose poor shooting in the third quarter contributed to their fourth straight loss.

Chandler Parsons and Carlos Delfino had 17 and 16 points respectively in the loss.

The Rockets led by one at halftime, but the Clippers seized control in the third quarter.

They quickly grabbed an 11-point lead at 76-65 after opening the third on an 18-6 run. The surge featured a three-point play from Griffin, a triple by Bledsoe and a pair of three-pointers by Willie Green.

Houston closed the gap to 13 points by the end of the third, but Crawford put the game away for Los Angeles with his superb shooting to start the fourth.

He scored the Clippers' first 12 points of the fourth, nailing five shots in a row to build their lead back up to 19 points with just over nine minutes left.

In North Carolina, Roy Hibbert had 18 points and seven rebounds as Indiana scored a 103-76 win over Charlotte - their 13th straight home loss.

The Pacers bounced back from Sunday's 11-point defeat to Brooklyn and won for the fifth time in six games.

The Central Division leaders (24-15) have not lost consecutive games since December 9.

Brook Lopez had 22 points and nine rebounds, Joe Johnson and Deron Williams each scored 21 points, and Brooklyn beat Toronto 113-106 to extend their season-high winning streak to seven games.

Andray Blatche added 14 points for the Nets, in the midst of their longest winning streak since running off 14 in a row late in the 2005-06 season.

In Philadelphia, Greivis Vasquez scored 23 points and Eric Gordon added 19 to help New Orleans beat the 76ers 111-99.

Ryan Anderson had 14 points, Xavier Henry scored 11 and Anthony Davis 10 for the Hornets, who are last in the Western Conference at 12-26 - with matching 6-13 records at home and on the road.

Jrue Holiday led the Sixers with 29 points and 11 assists.
