MILWAUKEE (AP) Matt Barnes scored 21 points, Blake Griffin had 18 points and 11 rebounds and the Los Angeles Clippers routed the cold-shooting Milwaukee Bucks 111-85 on Saturday night for their ninth consecutive victory.

DeAndre Jordan added 15 points and 11 rebounds for Los Angeles, which had lost three in a row in Milwaukee. Griffin had three spectacular dunks in a brief stretch in the third quarter.

It's the longest winning streak for the franchise since the Buffalo Braves captured 11 in a row during the 1974-75 season

The Bucks, who had won four in a row, shot 36 percent from the field. Marquis Daniels had a team-high 16 points.
