Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) - DeAndre Jordan had 24 points and 20 rebounds, Jamal Crawford and J.J. Redick each had 20 points, and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Houston Rockets 110-95 on Wednesday night.

The Clippers played their third game without Blake Griffin, who will be sidelined at least three weeks after surgery for a staph infection in his right elbow and will be re-evaluated after that. Chris Paul had 12 assists and 12 points.

Jordan, whose 22 points and career-high 27 rebounds powered the Clippers to a 115-98 victory over Dallas on Monday night, shot 6 for 8 from the field, extending his NBA-record streak to 39 consecutive games shooting at least 50 percent. He also was 12 for 26 from the free throw line.

Corey Brewer scored 22 points and fellow reserve Josh Smith had 21 for the Rockets, who have lost 11 of their last 12 meetings with the Clippers.
