Clippers Win 17th Straight:


Clippers win 17th straight:

Jamal Crawford scored 11 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the visiting Utah Jazz 107-96 on Sunday night for their 17th consecutive victory, becoming the third team in NBA history to record a perfect month.

The Clippers went 16-0 in December to join the 1995-96 San Antonio Spurs and 1971-72 Lakers as the only teams to go undefeated over a month. Their franchise-record winning streak is the longest in the NBA since Boston won 19 in a row four years ago.
