It wasn't an easy game for the Clippers, but with Blake Griffin leading the way, Los Angeles defeated Boston, 111-105, Wednesday night at Staples Center. BOX SCORE: Clippers 111, Celtics 105 Griffin had 29 points, six rebounds and eight assists to help send the Celtics to their sixth consecutive loss.

Rivers said the Clippers aren't engaged in talks to trade Griffin for Anthony and aren't going to trade their All-Star power forward.

Analytics gurus hate midrange jumpers, thinking them to be the most inefficient shots in the NBA. They won't be able to use Blake Griffin's performance Wednesday to bolster their case. Continually nudged toward the perimeter by a trapping defense, the Clippers forward made eight of 12 shots from at least 16 feet against the Charlotte Bobcats, continuing a seasonlong uptick in his midrange accuracy. He is shooting 38.2% on shots from 15-19 feet, a considerable improvement over the 33.5% of shots he made from the same distance last season.

The calendar flipped and there were indeed a few things different about the Clippers. Some resolve on defense, for one thing, not to mention a turn-back-the-clock performance from Jared Dudley. Oh, and there's this nugget: The Clippers are perfect in 2014 against the dreadful Eastern Conference after a 112-85 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night at Staples Center. Box score: Clippers 112, Bobcats 85 That actually ranks as something of an achievement considering wins had been no sure thing for the Clippers against the league's scarlet letter half; they came into the game 6-6 against a conference that features all of three teams with winning records.

Clippers Coach Doc Rivers has a simple explanation for Blake Griffin's recent dominance. "He's good," Rivers said.

He has shot 53.8% from the field and 80.6% (58 for 72) from the free-throw line. Asked if this stretch is the best he has played in his career, Griffin said, "Might be.

The Clippers were going to have to find the energy from somewhere after they used so much of it in their previous two games, emotional losses at Golden State and Portland. And the Clippers were going to have to summon all they had while playing against a team, the Utah Jazz, with one of the worst records in the NBA. Blake Griffin had the energy and the right game to power the Clippers to a 98-90 victory Saturday night at Staples Center. Griffin scored a season-high 40 points on 13-for-20 shooting, overpowering Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter and Marvin Williams.

At 2-13, the Houston Texans have the inside track on the No. 1 overall pick in May's NFL draft. But if the Texans were to win at Tennessee on Sunday, and Washington were to lose at the New York Giants, the Redskins, who had a weaker schedule, would get that prime pick … … and the honor of turning it over to St. Louis as part of the Robert Griffin III deal. :: For the 11th year in a row, the league will have at least one team go from worst to first in consecutive seasons.

It wasn't until late Thursday night that Blake Griffin responded to the NBA's decision from earlier in the day in which the league stated that the Clippers forward shouldn't have been ejected from Wednesday night's game against the Golden State Warriors. Griffin, who doesn't talk to the media before games, said the NBA's ruling made little difference because it couldn't change the fact that he was in the locker room and unable to help the Clippers down the stretch in a 105-103 loss to the Warriors.
