LOS ANGELES -- The Clippers tuned up for the playoffs with a clinic on scoring in transition, whether it was going coast-to-coast for layups or ferocious dunks. Diamondbacks Clay Buchholz Jersey . The display produced a 117-101 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday, giving the Clippers their franchise record-tying 56th win of the regular season. Blake Griffin had 27 points and nine assists, DeAndre Jordan had 21 points and nine rebounds, and Chris Paul added 17 points and 10 assists. "Were still playing for something," Paul said. "We can keep building confidence on defence. Were at our best when were running and getting stops." J.J. Redick had 13 points and Matt Barnes scored 12 in helping the Clippers improve to 33-7 at Staples Center, breaking the franchise record for home victories in a season. "When we got stops, got out and moved the ball from side to side, we were able to get what we wanted," Griffin said. "Thats the key for us, just playing our offence and not letting what they do dictate our game." Los Angeles completed a season sweep of the Kings and has won seven straight against them at home. "I just hated our defence," Sacramento coach Mike Malone said. DeMarcus Cousins had his seventh straight double-double with 32 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Kings, who lost their fifth in a row in their last road game of the season. Rudy Gay scored 16 points, and former Clipper Reggie Evans had 14 points and 14 rebounds. Cousins and Ben McLemore combined to score 24 of the Kings 32 points in the third quarter, including their last 20. McLemore hit consecutive 3-pointers, the second one just beating the clock at the end of the period, to leave the Kings trailing 85-79 going into the fourth. "We couldnt get any stops," Malone said. "Defensively, they just got whatever they wanted. It was just layup after layup after layup." McLemore finished with 14 points, hitting all six of his free throws, before getting his second technical and being ejected with 10:51 left in the game. "Thats the crazy thing about it," he said. "Ive never gotten kicked out of a game in my life." The Kings closed within two on a three-point play by Cousins in the fourth. The Clippers answered with a 12-2 run to go up 103-91, capped by Jamal Crawfords back-to-back 3-pointers. He landed in the lap of courtside fans after the first one. "Those two 3s Mal hit were backbreakers," Paul said. Crawford returned after missing five straight games with a sore left Achilles tendon. He finished with 10 points in 20 minutes. "I felt good, rusty obviously, but my teammates did a good job getting me easy looks," he said. Los Angeles outscored the Kings 25-5 on fastbreak points and 54-42 in the paint. "When a team lives in your paint, especially a good team like they are, youre going to have a hard time beating them," Malone said. NOTES: Clippers F Danny Granger sat out his seventh straight game because of a strained left hamstring. ... Kings G Isaiah Thomas missed his 10th straight game with a right quad contusion. ... Sacramento fell to 11-30 on the road and 7-19 against the West away from home. ... The Kings topped the 100-point mark for the first time in five games.

Coming off a 6-0 drubbing at Chelsea on Saturday, Arsenal endured another demoralizing result after rallying for a 2-1 lead -- only to concede a fluke equalizer.NEW YORK -- Even as the NBA prepares for a draft that could be headlined by freshmen, Commissioner Adam Silver remains committed to keeping them in college. So much so that NCAA President Mark Emmert was invited to discuss his involvement with owners. Silver is moving cautiously on potential changes to areas such as the lottery format and playoff structure, but makes it clear that raising the draft age limit to abolish the so-called "one and done" is one of his priorities. Freshmen Andrew Wiggins of Kansas and Jabari Parker of Duke are expected to be top-five picks in June, but Silver believes teams are taking those players young because of the system in place, not because its their preference. "The fact that our teams would draft these players if they were coming out of high school as they used to, or one year out of college, I think doesnt mean change isnt necessary," Silver said Friday. The age limit requiring American players to be 19 and a year out of high school was implemented in 2005, creating a system where players would simply go to college for a year and then declare for the draft. Silver and predecessor David Stern have long spoken about the desire to increase the limit to 20. But no change, which would have to be discussed with the union, was made during the last round of collective bargaining in 2011. The sides havent been able to have much serious discussion since then. The union has been without an executive director since ousting Billy Hunter 14 months ago, but Silvers desire for change remains. "Were ready to go," Silver said. "Weve been thinking about this issue for a long time." Silver said a change was unlikely for next season, and a transition period would be necessary whenever one was made. In the meantime, he wants the NCAA part of the discussion, so Emmert addressed owners during the two-day meetings. "One thing that we also agree on iss that historically what youve heard is that the age issue is one that needs to be negotiated almost in isolation between the NBA and its union. Diamondbacks Joey Krehbiel Jersey. What Dr. Emmert and I agree on is that the NCAA needs to have a seat at the table, as well, for those discussions," Silver said, "that if we are going to be successful in raising the age from 19 to 20, part and parcel of those negotiations go to the treatment of those players on college campuses, that closing the gap between what their scholarships cover and their other incidental expenses, having a longer discussion about eligibility periods so they can make the best decisions for them and their families if they do decide to come out early." Overseeing his first board meeting since replacing Stern in February, Silver seems open to considering anything to improve the league. Owners heard a discussion on ways to change the lottery system, which could be a way to erase the desire to "tank" -- seeking a poor record to have the best chances at the No. 1 pick. Silver said there was also discussion about redesigning the playoff structure to qualify the top 16 teams, rather than the top eight in each conference. Phoenix, which finished ninth in the West with 48 wins, wouldve tied for third in the East. But Silver said those items should be discussed first at length by the competition committee. "For me, the league is doing so well right now, I just want to be very deliberate and cautious about any major changes like that," Silver said. "It doesnt mean that we shouldnt make changes." Silver also said owners werent ready to vote on the potential sale of the Milwaukee Bucks yet, though that could happen soon once owners could review all the financial documents. Owner Herb Kohl reached agreement to sell the franchise to New York investment firm executives Marc Lasry and Wesley Edens for about $550 million. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
