CHICAGO (AP) — Blake Griffin had 22 points and 10 rebounds to help the Clippers beat Chicago for their seventh straight victory — the team’s longest winning streak in two decades.

Marco Belinelli hit a 3-pointer with less than a minute left to cut Chicago’s deficit to 89-87, but Chris Paul answered with a floater in the lane, then iced it with three free throws down the stretch as Los Angeles snapped the Bulls’ season-high three-game winning streak.

Paul finished with 18 points and four assists as the Clippers swept the season series for the first time since 2009-10.

Carlos Boozer had 24 points and 13 rebounds for the Bulls, who had won five of six overall.
