Clippers win fifth straight; Knicks lose 60 for second time ever

Montrezl Harrell and the Clippers have been cruising since the trade deadline in early February.

Lou Williams scored 29 points and Danillo Gallinari had 26 as the visiting Los Angeles Clippers down the New York Knicks 124-113 for their fifth-straight win.

The Clippers were once fighting to make the playoffs and traded off leading scorer Tobias Harris. But they are 14-4 since Feb. 9 and headed for the playoffs.

“We’re ready to play whoever we end up playing,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “In the meantime, let’s just keep winning games and everything will take care of itself.”

Montrezl Harrell added 24 for the Clippers (44-30).

Emmanuel Mudiay had 26 points, seven assists and six rebounds for the Knicks (14-60), who have now lost four straight and have lost 60 games for only the second time in franchise history.

Ex-Clippers center DeAndre Jordan added 20 points and 13 boards for the Knicks.
