Blake Griffin scored 27 and created nine assists as the LA Clippers beat Sacramento and claimed their franchise equaling 56th win of the regular season in the progress.

The Clippers, who already have one eye on their potential play-off opponents, still have two games remaining of the regular season to better their 56 total.

It was Griffin who led the way on the scoring charts as the home side ran out victorious, a result which meant that they have beaten their opponents in all seven match ups this season at the Staples Center, as the match ended 117-101.

Another record was also broken with the win, as the Clippers are now 33-7 at the Staples Center this season they now have a franchise record for the most home victories in a season.

Doc Rivers' side had six players who shot double figures and one of those was Chris Paul with 17 and 10 assists. After the match Paul admitted that the side will be utilising the remaining two matches to gear themselves up for the play-off push.

"We've just got to use these last two games to keep getting ready." he told the LA Times.

Clippers coach Rivers was pleased with his team and the way they dealt with the situations thrown up in the match.

"But overall, I was pretty happy. I like that we had foul trouble and had to kind of maneuver through that. Their bigs are really tough. Overall, I liked the way we played."

The Kings had DeMarcus Cousins top score in the match with 32 and 12 rebounds but without sufficient help from his teammates, the Clippers eased to victory in front of the home crowd. They now face Denver and Portland before the play-offs begin.
