Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Clippers left the Boston Celtics battered and bruised in a physical 106-77 victory on Thursday to extend their franchise-record winning streak to 15 games and remain on top of the NBA standings.

Building on contributions from their All-Stars, balanced bench and ferocious defence, the Clippers (23-6) continued to prove they are legitimate title contenders with another impressive home win over highly regarded opponents.

Reserves Matt Barnes (21 points) and Jamal Crawford (17) led the way as all 11 Los Angeles players who stepped on the Staples Centre court put a number in the scoring column.

“The special thing about our team is no one cares who gets the credit,” Clippers point guard Chris Paul told reporters after finishing with eight points and 11 assists.

“Right now our entire organisation has a winning mentality and we expect nothing less than that.”
