Updated: March 21, 2013

Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers put
a surprising loss behind them with a dominating 101-72 win over the road-weary
Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday.

Paul, after committing seven turnovers in a setback in Sacramento on Tuesday,
totaled 19 points, nine assists, six rebounds and five steals in the
resounding triumph.

Caron Butler added 14 points, while Willie Green and Jamal Crawford chipped
in 13 and 12, respectively, for a Clippers attack that connected on 53 percent
of their shots.

Jrue Holiday epitomized Philadelphia’s struggles, as the All-Star point guard
was 1-of-8 from the field for two points. Spencer Hawes put up 16 points,
seven boards, seven assists and four blocks in the loss.

The Sixers were coming off a successful 3-1 homestand but continued their
struggles on the road, where they have lost 14 straight.
