The Los Angeles Clippers couldn't solve the Oklahoma City Thunder nine days ago, but they broke through on Friday night and earned a 110-108 win at Chesapeake Energy Arena. 

The Clippers (8-1) have now won five games in a row dating back to their last meeting with the Thunder (6-3)—who have dropped two straight following a 6-1 start to the season. According to ESPN Stats & Info, the Clippers' 8-1 start is the franchise's best ever through nine games. 

Blake Griffin paced the Clippers with 25 points (10-of-20 shooting), while Chris Paul posted his third double-double of the season thanks to 17 points and 10 assists—including some clutch dimes late that gave the Clippers necessary breathing room. 

Russell Westbrook—who missed a potential game-winning three on the last possession of the game—was relatively inefficient as a shooter (9-of-25 from the floor), but he continued to stuff the stat sheet with 29 points, 14 rebounds and nine assists in a marquee matchup against Paul that started in somewhat sluggish fashion.
