LOS ANGELES — Nick Young scored 19 points off the bench, Blake Griffin added 17 and Randy Foye 13 to help the playoff-bound Los Angeles Clippers beat the West-leading Oklahoma City Thunder 92-77 on Monday night.
The Clippers had already clinched their first playoff berth in five years before the game began as a result of Houston's three-point loss to Denver, ending the second-longest active postseason drought in the league.
Griffin had 11 rebounds and DeAndre Jordan grabbed 12 in the Clippers' fourth straight victory and 12th in their last 14 games. Their 38 wins are the most since the franchise had 40 in 2006-07.
Kevin Durant led Oklahoma City with 24 points, Serge Ibaka and James Harden added 12 points each, and Russell Westbrook was held to nine as the Thunder's two-game winning streak ended.
