Blake Griffin took advantage of a depleted Houston Rockets lineup to help the Los Angeles Clippers to a 102-85 victory.

Bleacher Report noted the strong performance from the All-Star power forward:

Griffin was 11-of-20 from the floor in a dominant effort for the Clippers as they improved to 10-5 on the year with an impressive road win. Jamal Crawford added 21, while DeAndre Jordan finished with 13 rebounds and three blocks.

Chris Paul didn't need to light up the scoreboard himself but made an impact with his 10 points, seven assists and five steals. 

Houston fell to 12-4, despite James Harden's 16 points, six assists and two steals. He didn't get much help, as the offense was limited to just 39 percent shooting from the floor and turned it over 14 times.

Although this matchup could be a playoff preview, Friday's game was a one-sided affair.

The Rockets came into the day short-handed due to injuries to Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones and Patrick Beverley. Prior to Houston's recent win over the Sacramento Kings, Trevor Ariza discussed the team's rebounding challenge.
