The Los Angeles Clippers will look to extend their franchise-record winning streak to 15 games on Thursday when they host Boston six contests overall. Boston concludes its trek with games at Golden State and Sacramento on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. The Clippers' best off-season move was to sign sixth-man Jamal Crawford, who scored a team-high 22 points in Tuesday's victory. It marked the 12th time this season he has contributed 20 or more points off the bench. Forward Matt Barnes scored in double figures for the eighth straight game, pouring in 20 off the bench. Los Angeles is 16-0 when Barnes comes off the bench and reaches double digits. The Clippers scored a season-high 42 points in the second quarter against Denver. Their previous high for points in a quarter was 35. The Clippers' 64 points from their reserves marked the most since scoring 78 in a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Dec. 30, 2000. Boston's win over Brooklyn on Dec. 25 ended a five-game road losing streak. That streak will continue return tonight.
