Raptors’ Ross nets 51 in loss to Clippers

January 27, 2014

Jamal Crawford scored a season-best 37 points and had 11 assists, and Blake Griffin scored 30 points, as the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Toronto Raptors 126-118, reports Reuters.
Terrence Ross led the Raptors by tying the club record with 51 points on 16-for-29 shooting, including 10-for-17 from three-point range. He missed a free throw with four seconds to play that would have erased Vince Carter’s club record set in 2000.
NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant scored 32 points in the Thunder’s 103-91 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, extending to 10 his consecutive-game streak with 30 or more,
He added 14 rebounds and 10 assists for his second triple-double of the season, and the fifth of his career.
Durant is just the sixth NBA player since 1990 to fashion a 30-point-plus streak of 10 games or more.
Technically, it was not a doubleheader sweep, but the Memphis Grizzlies’ 99-81 victory over Houston was their second win over the Rockets in a 24-hour span.
Mike Conley paced the Grizzlies with 17 points.
Houston got 16 points from James Harden and 10 points and 12 rebounds from Dwight Howard.
