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. [url=http://www.officialrangersgearshop.com/Rangers-Matt-Moore-Kids-Jersey/]Matt Moore Jersey[/url] . 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.

The Bears and Jets have vacancies at GM.We thank Tom for his service over the past two seasons and wish him and his family the best as they move forward, Eagles GM Howie Roseman said in a statement released Wednesday. I appreciate all Tom has done for our scouting department and our team.Gamble joined the Eagles during the 2013 off-season after eight years with the San Francisco 49ers front office.His father, Harry Gamble, was a former GM in Philadelphia.Eagles coach Chip Kelly praised Gambles work as a talent evaluator earlier this week. He also said he would support him if he had an opportunity to go elsewhere.I think Tom does an outstanding job and if he has the opportunity to do that, then I would support him in anything, Kelly said Monday. And if I can give him any help in that situation I would. But hes a heck of a football guy.In the same interview, Kelly was asked about his working relationship with Roseman.His one-word reply good fuelled speculation that there may be some tension between the two men. [url=http://www.officialrangersgearshop.com/Rangers-Jason-Grilli-Kids-Jersey/]Jason Grilli Jersey[/url]. Kelly made it clear he has final say on roster decisions and praised Roseman for his expertise with contracts and the salary cap.Roseman, the youngest GM in the NFL at age 39, just completed his fifth season as GM. He began his career with the Eagles as an unpaid intern and was hired in 2000 as a salary-cap expert.Roseman has worked hard on scouting and takes pride in knowing personnel. He was responsible for the 2012 draft after owner Jeffrey Lurie told then-coach Andy Reid to step back. The Eagles had a successful draft that year, landing defensive end Fletcher Cox, quarterback Nick Foles, linebacker Mychal Kendricks, defensive end Vinny Curry and cornerback Brandon Boykin in the first four rounds.The last two drafts since Kelly was hired havent panned out, but its too early to judge.The Eagles missed the playoffs after a 9-3 start, losing three straight games in December. They ended up 10-6 for the second year in a row, though they won the NFC East in 2013.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.organd AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_RobMaaddi [url=http://www.blackhawksjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Blackhawks Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.avalanchejerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Avalanche Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.starsjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Stars Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.wildjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Wild Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.predatorsjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Predators Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.bluesjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Blues Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.winnipegjetsjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Jets Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.ducksjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Ducks Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.coyotesjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Coyotes Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.flamesjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Flames Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.oilersjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Oilers Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.losangeleskingsjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Kings Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.sharksjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Sharks Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.canucksjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Canucks Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.goldenknightsjerseyscheap.com/]Cheap Hockey Golden Knights Jerseys[/url] [url=http://www.cheaphockeycanadajerseys.com/]Hockey Team Canada Jerseys[/url] ' ' '
