    THE Los Angeles Clippers showcased its depth in mauling the Memphis Grizzlies, 114-98, at the FedEx Forum on Thursday (Friday, Manila time).

    Six players scored in double figures for the Clippers (39-26) led by backup guard Austin Rivers with 20 points. Chris Paul added 19 markers, while JJ Redick chipped in 15. Blake Griffin flirted with a triple-double as he had 14 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists.

    The Clippers turned a tight ballgame into a blowout in the second quarter with an 11-0 blast to take a 47-34 lead. The Grizzlies clawed back to get within nine, but Paul and Griffin did most of the damage in the third, where their team outscored Memphis 31-20, to put the Clippers up by 20 entering the fourth period.

    Jamal Crawford’s triple gave the Clippers their largest lead at 22 with 7:41 to play and they never let off the pedal the rest of the way.

    Marc Gasol had 20 points to lead the Grizzlies, who have lost four in a row to fall to 36-29. Zach Randolph had a double-double of 18 markers and 11 rebounds off the bench. Mike Conley struggled with just 3-of-14 shooting to finish with 13 points.
