Playing without Chris Paul proved no problem for the Clippers. Not having Rudy Gay was a much bigger issue for the host Memphis Grizzlies.
Reserves Jamal Crawford and Matt Barnes each scored 16 points, and the Clippers easily routed the host Grizzlies 99-73 Monday night with Paul missing his first game this season because of a bruised right kneecap.
"Missing the best point guard in the world in Chris Paul, we all had to play collectively and step it up, and I thought we did a good job of that," Crawford said.
The matchup between two of the best teams in the West wasn't close after the first quarter. While Paul watched from the bench, the Grizzlies were without their leading scorer: Gay was excused for his grandmother's funeral in Baltimore.
The Clippers matched their largest margin of victory on the road this season while holding the Grizzles to a season low in points.
The Grizzlies shot just 30.3 percent (27 of 89), a franchise low at home.
"That's why I said before the game that they're the best team in the West, maybe the best team in the league right now," Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said of the Clippers.
