The Clippers shot 50.0 percent from at least 15 feet Tuesday, tying their third-highest shooting percentage from that distance in a game this season. Jamal Crawford was the catalyst from that distance, scoring 23 of the Clippers' 45 points and making nine field goals, his most from at least 15 feet in the last three seasons.
Jamal Crawford scored a season-high 30 points Tuesday and was more effective in isolation than the Rockets top scorer, James Harden. Crawford and Harden each rank in the top 15 in the league in scoring on isolation plays, but it was Crawford who was more effective and efficient on that play type Tuesday.
At 30-9, the Clippers became the 2nd NBA team to reach 30 wins this season. Since moving to Los Angeles in 1984-85, the Clippers played (13) 82-game seasons without winning 30 games.
