CHICAGO — Blake Griffin had 26 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a 112-95 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Friday night.

Jamal Crawford added 19 points for the Clippers, who had six players score in double figures and shot 54 percent from the field — including 13 for 21 on 3-pointers. DeAndre Jordan added 10 points and 12 rebounds.

Carlos Boozer scored 22 points for the Bulls, who snapped a three-game winning streak.

The Clippers, playing without injured All-Star Chris Paul, have won four straight against the Bulls, and improved to 3-2 on their seven-game trip.

The Bulls cut the lead to eight in the third quarter but Darren Collison answered with two quick baskets and the Clippers led 92-80 heading to the fourth.
