Los Angeles Clippers ride Lou Williams to win over Los Angeles Lakers

"He saved us", Rivers said. "We just kind of beat ourselves". Due to injuries in their backcourt, the Clippers have been starting Williams at point guard.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 29 points for the Lakers, who had not played in five days after losing at Sacramento on Wednesday.

Blake Griffin drives to the basket earlier in Monday night's game against the Lakers. Injuries have completely derailed this team's season and could even change how they approach the next couple of seasons. So Rivers has made his son Austin the point guard alongside Lou Williams - the backup backcourt at the start of the season.

Clippers: Their 11-game streak against the Lakers is the longest home winning streak against them in franchise history.

Griffin is averaging 41.4 FanDuel points across 19 games this season. There have been no reports of Griffin needing surgery. It was Caldwell Pope's third consecutive game with 20 or more points. "For the past three weeks I've been dreaming of this, I missed it".

Lakers: F Larry Nance Jr. returned after missing 11 straight games with a broken bone in his left hand. Once he returns, numberFire's models project him to record 23.0 points, 8.1 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 2.9 turnovers per game on 51.3 percent from the field. Assuming talks with the Clippers don't result in an extension, Jordan will likely become a free agent to lock in what might be his last lucrative multiyear deal.

"The referees acknowledged he got hit", Williams said.

There is still no official word from the LA Clippers at the time of writing, as they may be doing further tests to more accurately determine the length of time the All-Star forward will miss.
