    导出博客文章LOS ANGELES -- Even as their leads expand to 30 and sometimes 40 points, the
    Clippers swear theyre not paying attention to the spread.For the NBAs best team,
    its all about consistency.Chris Paul had 21 points and nine assists and Blake
    Griffin added 20 points in a 127-95 rout of the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night
    that improved the Clippers to 10-1 with their seventh straight victory.We have a
    singular focus, Paul said. No excuses, we said were going to come out the same
    way every night. Its all about playing the right way. We got to keep
    building.Los Angeles came in having outscored opponents by an average of 15.1
    points, largest in the league. Brooklyn quickly found itself relegated to the
    Clippers growing scrap heap.Its actually good for our guys to see a team like
    this, new Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. They can see how well they are playing
    and their cohesiveness. Theyve been together for a while and theyre executing
    well. They turned us over and got us out of our game.Bojan Bogdanovic led the
    Nets with 18 points and Sean Kilpatrick added 14. Brooklyns season-high 22
    turnovers led to 35 points by the Clippers.J.J. Redick added 18 points, Luc Mbah
    a Moute scored 11 points and DeAndre Jordan had 14 rebounds for the Clippers,
    who shot 53 percent from the floor while extending the best start in franchise
    history. Their 127 points were a season high.The defense is so good right now
    our offense is allowed easy baskets, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. Theyre
    angry when the other team scores.Los Angeles raced to a 35-7 lead to start the
    game, highlighted by Jordans reverse dunk off Griffins alley-oop pass. The Nets
    didnt score the rest of their 14 first-quarter points until the last two minutes
    of the period and finished with their lowest point total in a quarter this
    season.Brooklyn went on its only run of the game in the second, scoring 10
    straight points to close to 51-34.Paul re-entered and hit a 3-pointer that
    launched a 20-13 spurt to give the Clippers a 71-47 halftime lead.Leading 89-59
    in the third, Griffin and Jordan energized the fading crowd with consecutive
    one-handed jams. Griffin stuffed a pass from Redick , and on their next trip up
    the court, Jordan dunked in front of Justin Hamilton, whose only defense was to
    stick his arms straight up in the air.The starters work was done after that,
    with Griffin and Jordan joining Paul, Redick and Mbah a Moute in sitting for
    good.The Clippers bench increased the lead to 102-71 heading into the fourth,
    when Griffin was on his feet laughing and pumping his arm in the
    air.TIP-INSNets: They havent beaten the Clippers in LA since 2010. ... Brooklyn
    fell to 1-4 on the road. ... G-F Caris LeVert (left foot rehab) and G Jeremy Lin
    (strained left hamstring) sat out.Clippers: Jordan needs two made free throws
    for 1,000 in his career. ... G Jamal Crawford, the king of four-point plays ,
    had one in the fourth, making a free throw after getting fouled on a 3-pointer
    he launched from in front of his teams bench. He fell down and was quickly
    helped to his feet by giddy teammates. ... Crawford led the bench with 17 points
    and Raymond Felton had 11. ... Wesley Johnson missed his second straight game
    with a left heel contusion.LESSON LEARNEDNets rookie reserve guard Yogi Ferrell
    had a close eye on Paul.Its very interesting playing against Chris Paul, Ferrell
    said. Im going to continue to be aggressive and push the ball and Im not going
    to back down from anyone.FIRST POINTSClippers rookie Diamond Stone finished with
    six points, his first in the NBA. He played the games final eight minutes after
    making his debut on Oct. 30 against Utah.HE SAID ITCP is into the hardcore metal
    rock so he gave me a little head bump. -- Jordan on his sideline head knock with
    Paul in the second half.UP NEXTNets: They remain in town to play the Lakers on
    Tuesday to complete a back-to-back. The Nets have lost two straight to
    them.Clippers: Host Memphis on Wednesday, with LA having gone 5-1 in the teams
    last six regular season meetings.

    . There was no hesitation from the
    40th-ranked Pospisil, from Vernon, B.C., who admitted that he cut back on his
    training sessions over the last few days to conserve energy as the long ATP
    season finishes next week at the Paris Masters. DALLAS -- The St. Louis Blues
    and Dallas Stars look to finish 2016 with some momentum and correct some notable
    issues heading into the flip of the calendar to 2017.For St. Louis (17-11-5),
    that issue is simple: being more effective at finishing games. On Monday night,
    the Blues lost 3-2 in overtime to the visiting Edmonton Oilers despite leading
    2-1 after two periods.The defeat continued a recent trend, as St. Louis fell for
    third time in the past four games it led after 40 minutes of play.Grit,
    determination, technique (is what this boils down to), Blues coach Ken Hitchcock
    said after the loss to the Oilers. But thats a team thing. Youve got to get it
    done.The Blues, who eliminated the Stars in seven games in the second round of
    the 2016 playoffs by winning Game 7 in Dallas, are 4-4-2 over their past 10
    games and 4-9-1 on the road.Backup goaltender Carter Hutton got the nod between
    the pipes for the Blues on Monday night, meaning No. 1 netminder Jake Allen, who
    is 5-2-0 with a 2.38 goals-against-average and two shutouts in eight career
    games against the Stars, likely will start Tuesday evening at American Airlines
    Center.Allen stopped 30 of 36 shots in his last start, a 6-4 home loss to
    Chicago on Saturday.Dallas (13-14-6) heads into Tuesdays Central Division tilt
    fresh off a 3-1 win against Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon, a victory that
    ended the Flyers 10-game winning streak and made the Stars 9-5-2 on home
    ice.Against the Flyers, fourth-line grinder Adam Cracknell delivered the
    eventual game-winning goal in the third period. Cracknell was signed late in
    preseason and has been a welcome addition to the lower end of the Dallas lineup,
    delivering solid, workmanlike shifts and also scoring a few goals.Cracknell made
    his NHL debut with the Blues in 2010, so the veteran forward is looking forward
    to facing the team that afforded him his first shot in the league.They gave me
    an opportunity, Cracknell said after practice Monday. I had a great career with
    St. Louis, up and down a little bit, but all in all, a grreat experience and got
    some playoff experience as well.dddddddddddd Always excited to play against
    those guys.Dallas is 4-6-0 over its past 10 games, and the Stars continue to
    pace the NHL with 101 goals allowed. However, fourth-year coach Lindy Ruff is
    more than a bit encouraged by his team allowing an average of just two goals per
    game over its past eight contests.Well, I think first (reason for that drop in
    goals allowed is) a greater commitment from the group, Ruff said. Second part,
    we made a system change I think has helped everybody. Its helped our defense,
    and all the guys like it.Special teams figure to be critical on Tuesday,
    especially with the Blues having the NHLs second-best penalty kill (88.5
    percent) and No. 7 power play (21.9 percent), but the Stars special teams will
    be impacted by two key absences, Johnny Oduya and Patrick Sharp.Oduya sustained
    a lower-body injury against Philadelphia on Saturday and did not practice on
    Monday.Johnny will just be day-to-day, Ruff said Monday. He went out after
    practice to see how it feels, probably know more (Tuesday). Hes in the category
    of unlikely probably.Oduya missed 10 games with a lower-body injury before
    returning to the lineup Dec. 11 at Chicago.Sharp is a former teammate of Oduya
    in Chicago, where the two played for several Stanley Cup champions, but the
    veteran forward will miss a ninth consecutive game with concussion-like
    symptoms.Sharp sat out 14 games with similar symptoms earlier this season before
    returning Nov. 19. He then played the next six games before experiencing
    symptoms during a game at Pittsburgh on Dec. 1, which was the last time he
    played.Yeah, he obviously practiced full (Monday), so hes getting closer to a
    return, Ruff said.Dallas is looking to rack up points at home during a five-game
    homestand and a month that will see them play nine times at home. The Stars are
    2-1-0 during the homestand thus far. ' ' '
