LOS ANGELES -- The Clippers tuned up for the playoffs with a clinic on scoring in transition, whether it was going coast-to-coast for layups or ferocious dunks. Trenton Cannon Jets Jersey . The display produced a 117-101 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Saturday, giving the Clippers their franchise record-tying 56th win of the regular season. Blake Griffin had 27 points and nine assists, DeAndre Jordan had 21 points and nine rebounds, and Chris Paul added 17 points and 10 assists. "Were still playing for something," Paul said. "We can keep building confidence on defence. Were at our best when were running and getting stops." J.J. Redick had 13 points and Matt Barnes scored 12 in helping the Clippers improve to 33-7 at Staples Center, breaking the franchise record for home victories in a season. "When we got stops, got out and moved the ball from side to side, we were able to get what we wanted," Griffin said. "Thats the key for us, just playing our offence and not letting what they do dictate our game." Los Angeles completed a season sweep of the Kings and has won seven straight against them at home. "I just hated our defence," Sacramento coach Mike Malone said. DeMarcus Cousins had his seventh straight double-double with 32 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Kings, who lost their fifth in a row in their last road game of the season. Rudy Gay scored 16 points, and former Clipper Reggie Evans had 14 points and 14 rebounds. Cousins and Ben McLemore combined to score 24 of the Kings 32 points in the third quarter, including their last 20. McLemore hit consecutive 3-pointers, the second one just beating the clock at the end of the period, to leave the Kings trailing 85-79 going into the fourth. "We couldnt get any stops," Malone said. "Defensively, they just got whatever they wanted. It was just layup after layup after layup." McLemore finished with 14 points, hitting all six of his free throws, before getting his second technical and being ejected with 10:51 left in the game. "Thats the crazy thing about it," he said. "Ive never gotten kicked out of a game in my life." The Kings closed within two on a three-point play by Cousins in the fourth. The Clippers answered with a 12-2 run to go up 103-91, capped by Jamal Crawfords back-to-back 3-pointers. He landed in the lap of courtside fans after the first one. "Those two 3s Mal hit were backbreakers," Paul said. Crawford returned after missing five straight games with a sore left Achilles tendon. He finished with 10 points in 20 minutes. "I felt good, rusty obviously, but my teammates did a good job getting me easy looks," he said. Los Angeles outscored the Kings 25-5 on fastbreak points and 54-42 in the paint. "When a team lives in your paint, especially a good team like they are, youre going to have a hard time beating them," Malone said. NOTES: Clippers F Danny Granger sat out his seventh straight game because of a strained left hamstring. ... Kings G Isaiah Thomas missed his 10th straight game with a right quad contusion. ... Sacramento fell to 11-30 on the road and 7-19 against the West away from home. ... The Kings topped the 100-point mark for the first time in five games. Sam Darnold Jets Jersey .

The veteran fighter will be squaring off with Henderson in a five-round lightweight bout as part of another network televised card at the United Center on Saturday night.NEW YORK -- The New York Mets traded slumping first baseman Ike Davis to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night, parting ways with a power hitter who proved to be too inconsistent at the plate. Pittsburgh sent minor league right-hander Zack Thornton and a player to be named to New York for the 27-year-old Davis. The Mets announced the deal just minutes before a 6-0 loss to Atlanta. Davis was on the field during batting practice earlier in the day. The Pirates had searched all winter for a first baseman, without success in the trade and free-agent markets. "Ultimately, we found the right fit," Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said. "Hopefully this is a move that solves our first base needs for years to come," he said. The lefty-swinging Davis hit 32 homers for the Mets in 2012, but fell off sharply last year. "Obviously, I didnt play as well as I should have," he said. Davis was hitting .208 with one home run and five RBIs in 24 at-bats. He lost his starting job to Lucas Duda and was relegated to a part-time role with the Mets, who also have Josh Satin at first base. "You cant play a major league season with three first basemen, so one of us had to go," Davis said outside the Mets clubhouse after the game started. "Obviously its an emotional time, but we arent there bawling our eyes out," he said. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said the team decided several months ago to trade Davis. "We are happy for Ike and it was a situation we needed to resolve," Alderson said. "I would not say that we lost patience with Ike. At some point you have to make a decision about players on the roster, so we simply had to make a choice." Said Mets star David Wright: "It happened late so I dont think a lot of guys knew, but Ike will be missed. Through thick and thin, Ike was the best teammate Ive ever had." The Mets filled Davis roster spot by activating outfielder Chris Young from the 15-day disabled list. He started in centre field. "Happy to be back," Young said before the game. "Seems like its been forever, for some reason." Young had been out with an injured right quadriceps. He played one inning in the field for the Mets during the opening week and was pulled before he came to bat. Davis, the son of formmer big league pitcher Ron Davis, was a promising prospect when he hit 19 homers with 71 RBIs while batting . Sam Darnold Jersey. 64 as a rookie in 2010. He got off to a strong start the following year, hitting .302 with seven homers and 25 RBIs in 36 games, but missed most of the season with an ankle injury. Still, he seemed primed for a fine career. Davis power numbers peaked in 2012 -- he was tied for fifth in the NL homer race -- even while he hit just .227. But he got off to a second consecutive miserable start last year and was demoted to the minors for nearly a month. He batted .205 with nine home runs and 33 RBIs, missing the final month with a side strain. "Obviously, its a little weird. Ive been with the Mets for a long time. Ive got really good friends here," Davis said. "Ive had a blast in New York. Its where I made my childhood dreams come true." As for joining the Pirates a year after they ended a long playoff drought, "in different scenery it will be better," Davis said. Since no cash was involved, the Mets save $3,117,486 of Davis $3.5 million salary. The Pirates didnt bring back first baseman Garrett Jones after the season and went searching for a lefty-hitting complement to Gaby Sanchez. But no major moves developed and the Pirates went into spring training with only prospect Andrew Lambo and non-roster invitee Travis Ishikawa at the position. Lambo didnt hit much in exhibition play and Ishikawa got off to a quick start during the regular season before dipping. Manager Clint Hurdle has reverted back to playing Sanchez -- a player who has drastic right/left splits -- against righties. "Ikes done a really nice job against right-handed pitchers in his career. Hes had two big seasons and two injury-plagued seasons and were betting that our guys can get him back on the right track. Were betting that he was a better fit in this ballpark than he was in what used to be spacious Citi Field," Huntington said. Young went 8 for 12 with two homers in a three-game rehabilitation stint at Triple-A Las Vegas. Young hit 27 homers with 91 RBIs and 28 steals for Arizona in 2010. He hasnt been able to duplicate those numbers since then. The 25-year-old Thornton was 2-0 with a 1.23 ERA in four relief appearances at Triple-A Indianapolis. He will report to Las Vegas. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Discount Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Throwback Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '
